<DIV><FONT size=2>Greetings</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT size=2>One of the glosses BAGD lists for hUPOTASSOMAI (middle form of
hUPOTASSW) is 'obey'. It also offers 'be subject to' and 'obey' as glosses for
hUPAKOUW. My question: What is the difference in nuance between these two words
(with particular reference to passages where slaves are told to 'be subject to'
their&nbsp;masters, wives to their husbands, etc.) </FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT size=2>What is the difference between telling a child to 'obey'
(hUPAKOUW) his parents (Eph 6:1, Col 3:20) and telling wifes to submit to
(hUPOTASSOMAI) their husbands (Eph 5:22, Col 3:18, Tit 2:5). What difference
would there be between telling a slave to obey (hUPAKOUW) and telling him to
submit to (hUPOTASSOAI) his master? </FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT size=2>Thanks </FONT></DIV>
