Re: Deut 6:8 Translation Issue

I am seriously out of my depth here and paddling furiously but perhaps the following is of use. The Hebrew uses a noun. The Latin (I have none to be fair) and Greek appear to try to describe what the thing is rather than name it. I wondered if they were both attempting to describe something on one's...

Μή I have a little help ?

Hi ya, Apologies for the dreadful pun. I'm looking at Arrian's letter in Epictetus' discourses and I ran across this : Arrian 5 ἀλλ᾿ ἐμοί γε οὐ πολὺς λόγος, εἰ οὐχ ἱκανὸς φανοῦμαι συγγράφειν, Ἐπικτήτῳ τε οὐδ᾿ ὀλίγος, εἰ καταφρονήσει τις αὐτοῦ τῶν λόγων, ἐπεὶ καὶ λέγων αὐτοὺς οὐδενὸς ἄλλου δῆλος ἦν ἐ...

Re: Interchange of Future and Aorist Participle?

MPeter 3.2 Ὁ δὲ Πέτρος ὅραμα θεασόμενος ἧκεν ἐπὶ τὸν τόπον, ὅπως αὐτὸν καὶ ἐν τούτῳ ἐλέγξῃ· ὅτε γὰρ εἰσίει εἰς τὴν Ῥώμην, ἐξέστησεν τοὺς ὄχλους πετώμενος. Any chance it's just a spelling error or a misread in the original transcription ? It would interesting to see a decent photo of the source manu...

Re: What replaced the optative in Koine?

For example, what takes the role of the potential optative (Smyth 1824) in Koine? How would the following sentence be written/spoken in Koine? τοὺς ἵππους ἂν δοίη (he might give the horses/he should give the horses). I can't see the subjunctive filling the role of the optative here. BDF has this to...

Re: Editors Needed for Greek Lexicon

For that matter, a Biblical Hebrew to Biblical Hebrew lexicon/glossary would be helpful also. I've started on what could be a small step toward such a work. It's a BH to BH vocabulary for the book of Jonah. I've done the first five verses (first draft) and hope to return to the project later this y...

Re: Editors Needed for Greek Lexicon

why don't they do a Greek--Greek lexicon? that would truly fill a hole in the field. I totally agree but this doesn't seem to be the aim of the project if this link describes the same position https://wycliffeassociates.secure.force.com/opportunities/ts2__JobDetails?jobId=a0K3s00000CLgutEAD&tSource...

Re: Siebenthal - Ancient Greek Grammar

I definitely get worried that I am updating my Olivetree BDAG with comments from interesting papers against entries, and if I lost olivetree then I will lose that. The thought of updating it all into my Logos version is painful Yep, it's one reason to keep your notes separate from any given s/w. I ...

Re: Siebenthal - Ancient Greek Grammar

I wish there were some way to automatically get electronic versions of texts I already own, or to pay for a lexicon once and use it with all my software. I think Accordance do discounts to help people move across to them where they already own a resource in another system They do, they call them cr...

Re: In Ephesians 4:32, is χαρίζομαι really about forgiveness, per se, or is it about “showering with generosity” (“prodi

I guess I have three thoughts on this Bill. 1. Translations, it seems to me, get stuck in their ways. The KJV cast a very long shadow and others cast their own. 2. Various words in Greek appear have been used in the NT texts in a restricted sense or senses and you don't see the full extent of their ...
