<TITLE>Re: &nbsp;1 Cor 10:13</TITLE>
April Vanbibber asked about 1 Cor. 10:13:<BR>
&gt; <BR>
&gt; In the last phrase THN EKBASIN TOU DUNASTHAI hUPENEKEIN, does He provide<BR>
&gt; a way out of the temptation SO THAT we will be able to endure, or (as I'm<BR>
&gt; thinking) is the ability to endure, itself, the way out?<BR>
&gt; <BR>
April, <BR>
I think your first option is better. &nbsp;An articular infinitive in the genitive case often expresses purpose. &nbsp;See BDF 400(5), or any other standard grammar you have handy. &nbsp;For your inference about endurance, you would have a stronger case if the passage actually mentioned endurance.<BR>
Happy studies,<BR>
