Re: Greek Grammars on the Articulation of Prepositional Objects

[ Certainly. It could well be an epiphenomenon of a confluence of other grammatical factors that happen to manifest more frequently in prepositional phrases. If so, this would mean that grammars are descriptively inadequate in lumping them under prepositional phrases. In any case, I would like to g...

Re: Greek Grammars on the Articulation of Prepositional Objects

By the way, the presence of the article in 1 Thess 1:10 is a hard text-critical problem (hence my interest in getting a good grasp of the issue), and if we can understand the articulation of prepositional objects better, then we can evaluate the intrinsic probabilities for the reading better. I hav...

Re: Epistle to Diogenetus

Diog. 4:1 Ἀλλὰ μὴν τό γε περὶ τὰς βρώσεις αὐτῶν ψοφοδεές , καὶ τὴν περὶ τὰ σάββατα δεισιδαιμονίαν , καὶ τὴν τῆς περιτομῆς ἀλαζονείαν, καὶ τὴν τῆς νηστείας καὶ νουμηνίας εἰρωνείαν, καταγέλαστα καὶ οὐδενὸς ἄξια λόγου «οὐ» νομίζω σε χρῄζειν παρ᾿ ἐμοῦ μαθεῖν. But with regard to their qualms about meats...

Re: Exodus 13:1

Probably getting in over my head here. Doesn't take much searching to discover a pattern here. Hebrew idiom EX 3:12 כל־פטר־רחם LXX patterns with variations Ex. 13:2 Ἁγίασόν μοι πᾶν πρωτότοκον πρωτογενὲς διανοῖγον πᾶσαν μήτραν ἐν τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ ἀπὸ ἀνθρώπου ἕως κτήνους· ἐμοί ἐστιν. ***** πρωτογενὲ...

Re: Exodus 13:1

E.Tov MT/LXX marks πρωτότοκον {d} πρωτογενὲς as a doublet. J.W. Wevers Notes on Gk Text Exodus , p195, calls πᾶν πρωτότοκον πρωτογενὲς an appositional construction and adds "to distinguish it (πρωτογενὲς) from the more common word (πρωτότοκον) ... (πρωτογενὲς) might be rendered "the one born first" ...

Epistle to Diogenetus

Diog. 2:1 Ἄγε δή, καθάρας σεαυτὸν ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν προκατεχόντων σου τὴν διάνοιαν λογισμῶν, καὶ τὴν ἀπατώσάν σε συνήθειαν ἀποσκευασάμενος, καὶ γενόμενος ὥσπερ ἐξ ἀρχῆς καινὸς ἄνθρωπος, ὡς ἂν καὶ λόγου καινοῦ, καθάπερ καὶ αὐτὸς ὡμολόγησας, ἀκροατὴς ἐσόμενος· ἴδε μὴ μόνον τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς ἀλλὰ καὶ τῇ φρο...

Re: Sad news about ... bible software in general.

Thank you all for helpful suggestions. I'm not suffering. I have a daily workout in the park 90mins of pulling hills. Good shape for someone my age. I seem to have stabilized my bible software by simply reinstalling it from the installation .dmg which I keep forever. The application probably got cor...

Re: Sad news about ... bible software in general.

Daniel, Thank you for commenting. I am at the extreme end of the learning cycle. Which means that I am not retaining much. I am forced to use software because my Athanasius project resulted in permanent damage to my left hand and wrist. I jokingly refer to it as Lexicon wrist. I cannot work at a des...

Sad news about ... bible software in general.

Here is one reason to spend some time thinking about the long term implications of purchasing a large digital library. I recently with trepidation installed MacOS Mojave 10.14.6 (not the latest build #) and subsequently noticed my bible software was crashing more often. This isn't news since the bib...
