Than You can use the last uodates of OSX, running an old version of OSX with your BIblesoftware in the Virtual machine. I myself use Virtual Box to run windows and linux-Software on a 10 Year old Mac-Pro. M...

Re: Luther's translation of αἰών/αἰώνιος

Protogermanic root: *aiwō- "era, period of time; (specific germanic:) law, habbit" Protoindoeuropean: *h2eiu- "long span of time" The Protoindoeuropean root is the root for αιων, aevum, eeuw, ewig- : The meaning "century" seems to be quite young. Luther probably had in his mind the meaning "long spa...

Re: Ισαακ or Ισακ

Dear Jonathan,

if You were looking for Greek Variants with something like Ισχαχ: either there are none, or at least till now I didn't find them!

The Latin Isach comes closest I think.

Regards

Re: Ισαακ or Ισακ

Yes there are some Greek Mss. that have Ισακ: Cod. Sinaiticus, Cod. Bezae, (Papyri:) P13, P46.

In the Itala (=the Old-Latin versions): Isaac, Isac, Isach and ... Isahac.

The Gothic has all -αα- transliterated -aha-, but it has Isak.

Regards

Re: Ισαακ or Ισακ

Thanks for the Explanation.

That double vowel (as used in the mas of Greek Mss.) would have resulted in the name (like in some Itala Mss.) Isahak (just like Abraham).

Regards,

Ισαακ or Ισακ

Ισαακ or Ισακ The hebrew pronunciation was something like "yitschâk" (I don't know any hebrew, so I have to trust the Internet for that). As Greek Variants I see Ισαακ (in most Manuscripts), Ισακ (in Cod. Sin., Cod. Bezae, P13, P46). In Editions: Ισαακ. Septuagint as far as I could check: only Ισαακ...

Re: Luther's translation of αἰών/αἰώνιος

Maybe academia.edu could be helpful. You might have a look at this: http://konkordant.de/ewig.html. Luther (as well as the Dutch Translators of the Statenbijbel (Edition 1689) had the same problem: German "Ewigkeit" (dutch "eeuwigheid") is a time without beginning and without End (= eternity"): so a...

Re: Luther's xlation of αιων/αιωνιος

Maybe Kittel Theological Dictionary of the New Testament, Lemma αιων could solve the Luther-Translation-Question (Luther knew Greek as well as Hebrew): In Chapter C the Kittel Dictionary explains the double meaning of αιων: 1) eternity and 2) so called "Welt-Zeit" (= the limited time of our world: t...

Luke 5:19

In Luke 5:19 the Greek Editions (NA28 and Robinson Pierpoint) have και μη ευροντες ποιας εισενεγκωσιν ... In the Manuscripts (checking 342 Mss. of the INTF) I found the following variants for ποιας: ποιας : By far the majority πωσ : 85 x ποθεν: 23 x δια ποιας οδου : 13 x δια ποιας : 4 x ποιας οδου :...

Re: Luke 6:27 εχθρους

Dear Daniel, thanks for the great explanation and your search for examples. As the gothic translator in the 4th century here deviated from his usual translation of εχθρος, one has to search for reasons. If one cannot find a good reason, one might say, the Gothic translator made a mistake. "But that ...
