Greetings. In his discussion of participles , Daniel Wallace (Greek Grammar
Beyond the Basics) includes a category of "Independent Verbal Participles."
These are participles "that function as though they were finite verbs and are
not dependent on any verb in the context for their mood... [they] may
function as either indicatives or imperatives, though both of these are
extremely rare."

I think that Exodus 15:18 LXX is an example of this indepedent verbal
participle functioning as an indicative: KURIOS BASILEUWN TON AIWNA KAI EP'
AIWNA KAI ETI. "The LORD rules the age and over the age and beyond."

What do others think? Can the participle be explained in any other way?
