1 John 2:3
KAI EN TOUTWi GINWSKOMEN hOTI EGNWKAMEN AUTON, EAN TAS ENTOLAS AUTOU THRWMEN
Are there any objections to the following paraphrase or translation:
"And in this, namely, if we diligently guard and honor his commandments, we
know that we are in a state of [intimate] knowledge of him."
How would you capture the shift from the present GINWSKOMEN to the perfect
I have added [intimate] in an attempt to capture the idea of knowledge in a
relationship sense, but perhaps "intimate" is too strong.
How can I translate this in such a way as to not imply that there is only
ONE state of "knowing" someone?
I get the idea that this is dealing with "knowing" someone in the sense of a
relationship, not in the sense of attaining more raw data about someone.
Also, what does "passim" mean? (It is not used as a Greek word. I see this
word in a commentary I am now reading. As in: John 6:20, 14:11, 1 John 1:4,
2 John 3, passim.)
