Re: Greek Grammars on the Articulation of Prepositional Objects

I too have been very interested this thread. I haven't had much time to look up any of the references, but now that Greek class has let out I hope to have more time.

Re: Gen 4:23

Ok, I think I get your example now Ken, the distinction being which clause carries the precipitating event and which the consequence.
Let me know if I'm off.

Re: Gen 4:23

Perhaps to stir the pot a bit, but what's the difference between causal and final (purpose)? "I killed a man because I got wounded" would be causal. "I killed a man in order (for me) to get wounded" would be final. Yes, the purpose (getting wounded) was formulated before the killing, but it happene...

Re: Blue Letter Bible formatting - circumflexes with diaereses

Wow - it's actually encoded as that : https://codepoints.net/U+1FD7

I didn't realize there was a precomposed for this.
And that makes me wonder about ιος unless they are somehow serving a different file there.

Re: Blue Letter Bible formatting - circumflexes with diaereses

Cute. Looks like the proverbial Foo poking his head up over a wall :) I haven't checked the encoding but something got messed up somewhere - hopefully it would be a relatively easy fix.

Ok, I would let them know, so they can figure it out and get it fixed.

Thx

Re: Blue Letter Bible formatting - circumflexes with diaereses

It's not correct so there can be any number of reasons why it's wrong. Thanks. I'm less concerned about 'reasons why it's wrong' (since I know why it's wrong) and more concerned with the origin of the error, which is very consistent in BLB. It makes copying and pasting from that website problematic...

Almost needless to say, the ECF's tend to use the phrase almost exclusively without the article, perhaps in imitation of the predominant NT usage.
I was following you until ECF's. Early Church Fathers ?

Re: Exodus 13:1

I went and checked the Hebrew to see whether it also had two terms here and it does. כָל־בְּכ֜וֹר פֶּ֤טֶר כָּל־רֶ֙חֶם֙ As far as I can follow (weak my Hebrew is to quote Yoda) 'every first born, the first born of every womb', פֶּ֤טֶר being a construct state I believe.

Re: 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 differen...
