Word Suffixes

Van Voorst's Building Your New Testament Greek Vocabulary and Trenchard's Complete Vocabulary Guide to the Greek New Testament both have a section on the suffixes of the various parts of speech and what they mean. Some of the meanings they assign to the suffixes seem opposite from one another. Just ...

Re: Matt. 4:16 καθημαι and Matt. 5:1 καθιζω

Hi RandallButh. I took your Living Biblical Hebrew course. It was very good. Thanks for your response. That is quite helpful. Could you say (to summarize), you're saying that both forms occur simply to offer a complete paradigm of the word, καθημαι being for the aorist, and καθιζω being for the pres...

Matt. 4:16 καθημαι and Matt. 5:1 καθιζω

Matt 4:16 ὁ λαὸς ὁ καθήμενος ἐν ⸀σκοτίᾳ ⸂φῶς εἶδεν⸃ μέγα, καὶ τοῖς καθημένοις ἐν χώρᾳ καὶ σκιᾷ θανάτου φῶς ἀνέτειλεν αὐτοῖς. Matt 5:1 Ἰδὼν δὲ τοὺς ὄχλους ἀνέβη εἰς τὸ ὄρος· καὶ καθίσαντος αὐτοῦ προσῆλθαν αὐτῷ οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ· I suppose this is more of a lexical question. In Matt 4:16 the verb καθημ...

Exodus 13:1

1 Εἶπεν δὲ κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν λέγων 2 Ἁγίασόν μοι πᾶν πρωτότοκον πρωτογενὲς διανοῖγον πᾶσαν μήτραν ἐν τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ ἀπὸ ἀνθρώπου ἕως κτήνους, ἐμοί ἐστιν. I see that the two bolded words are synonymous in BDAG. And the words γενναω and τικτω are as well. But certainly there must be some differenc...

Re: Who was loathed in Exodus 1:12?

Εβδελύσσοντο is middle/passive. And I understand the ἀπὸ + genitive construction can be interpreted as cause (because of) or agency (by) (Wallace, GGBB, 368). The NETS translation translates it as follows: "and the Egyptians were disgusted with the sons of Israel." This would, I'm guessin...

Who was loathed in Exodus 1:12?

The verse reads as follows: καθότι δὲ αὐτοὺς ἐταπείνουν, τοσούτῳ πλείους ἐγίνοντο καὶ ἴσχυον σφόδρα σφόδρα, καὶ ἐβδελύσσοντο οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι ἀπὸ τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ. Εβδελύσσοντο is middle/passive. And I understand the ἀπὸ + genitive construction can be interpreted as cause (because of) or agency (by) (Wal...

Re: Translating a Second Temple Aramaic text into Greek

Would someone please share advice on my translation of 1 Enoch 4:1? Again, I translated it from the Aramaic, as 4:1 is not extant in the Greek witnesses of 1 Enoch. Is it good Greek? Any suggestions? I have translated it as follows: ιδετε την θερειαν πως καυματιζεν και διεθέρμαινεν ο ηλιος και ζητει...

Re: Translating a Second Temple Aramaic text into Greek

For those who are interested, the Aramaic is as follows (taken from The Dead Sea Scrolls Study Edition , 4Q201 column 2 lines 4-6): חזו דכל אילניה כלהן מיבישין ברא מן ארבעת עסר אילנין דעליהן מתקימין עד דתרתין ותלת שנין יעברן A useful resource for this task is Milik's The Books of Enoch .
