Re: μὴ κατακαυχᾶσθε καὶ ψεύδεσθε

In James 3:14 I see μὴ κατακαυχᾶσθε καὶ ψεύδεσθε I'm trying to understand if "you must not boast and you must not lie" is grammatically valid; that is, if the negation applies to both imperatives. Thanks in advance! Considering the context, one could hardly see ψεύδεσθε as a positive imperative - "...

So - with objections noted about the "clunker" Machen - recommend another.

Re: Please help me to identify the letters in greek

Another: "τῷ ςεναγμῷ τῶν οωτερίαν ουνεξευγμένην" - Here I did found that he was quoting Nazianzen and I found who was Gregory Nazianzen but from which of Nazianzen's books is he quoting? Not sure because of the misspellings. The first and the thrid word are ok. The second one I was able to find it ...

Re: Map of Roman Empire in Greek

Check out this map of the Roman Empire in AD 117 with Greek names ! I first saw it posted here . It appears to be the work of this wikipedia contributor . It appears to be a translation of this map . I only checked a few of the names to verify that they were actually Ancient Greek names, not just M...

Re: Greek is rusty

You might try the "Daily Dose of Greek" (free, 2 minutes per day) , sign on at https://dailydoseofgreek.com/ . At present it is going through John's Gos...

Re: Romans 1:1. Own translation. Grammar check

Thank you Barry, (1) Yes, I understood the “problem”. I am glad I am on track, so far. … The context is interesting (!), but I am not presenting my interpretation here. (I can speak in some depth about how “into” makes perfect sense, in the context…) (2) I recall many steps in the decision to trans...

Re: Form of the Word Πολύς in Matthew 24:12

Matthew 24:12: "Καὶ διὰ τὸ πληθυνθῆναι τὴν ἀνομίαν ψυγήσεται ἡ ἀγάπη τῶν πολλῶν ." The majority of Bible translations which I have checked render the last word as “many,” whereas there are also many translations which use the comparative form “most.” At least two translations render the word as “gr...

Re: Ancient Greek Graphic Novel

I just found some graphic novels of various Ancient Greek stories by Magda van Tilburg. This link is to a section from Herodotus ( History Book II.121) called "the smart thief": https://booxalive.nl/de-slimme-dief/ . It looks like there are four Greek stories available for free to read! Looks fun, ...

There is no evidence in ancient times for the 'palatalized' pronunciation of κ as [kʲ] before front vowels which is normal in modern Greek.
