Help? I ahve run into a word in Gal. 3:19 that I seem to have either
forgotten the connection or perhaps had never run into it before.
The sentance reads:
TWN PARABASEWN XARIN PROSETEQH AXRIS OU ELQHi TO SPERMA hWi EPHGGELETAI,
DIATAGEIS DI AGGELWN EN XEIRI MESITOU.
The word in question is DIATAGEIS at the beginning of the second clause. I
have determined that this is a form of one of two words:
1: DIATAGH, "Arrangement" but which case? my declension would be
DIATAGH . DIATAGAI
DIATAGHS . DIATAGWN
DIATAGHi . DIATAGAIS
DIATAGHN . DIATAGAS
Genative singular seems closest, but should it not have an antcedent in this
2: DIATASSW "to arrange" but what tense ,etc. Aorist or perfect perhaps but
what person and number give -EIS?
I have tentatively place both options in my notes and seem to see the idea in
either case. My thoughts on this verse so far goes like this:
It was added a grace for transgessors until the seed has come to whom it was
promised, | an arrangement | arranged | by angels by the hand of a mediator.
Am I close?
Thanks for your advice in advance.
