Re: Infinitive usage in Against Apion 1.1

1) what is the syntactical usage of the infinitive phrase: τεκμήριόν τε ποιουμένους τοῦ νεώτερον εἶναι τὸ γένος ἡμῶν ? The way I am interpreting this phrase as (text rearranged for clarity) : ποιουμένους τεκμήριόν "while they make it out to be a sure sign" [that] τὸ γένος ἡμῶν τοῦ ... εἶν...

Re: Septuagint Translation Choices: Love

What references are best for discussion of Septuagint translation choices for words related to love (חֶסֶד, אהב, etc), focusing on the relationships between Greek and Hebrew meanings? I know Hatch and Redpath, and I know some Hebrew lexicons make reference to Greek words that are used to translate ...

Re: Septuagint Commentary Series - Isaiah (21-Oct-2020)

A new volume in the Septuagint commentary series from Brill is coming out. I have their Genesis commentary and they do a great job discussing the Hebrew background behind some of the translations. They also deal nicely with the Greek grammar on its own terms. Thanks for the plug, Matthew. The Genes...

Re: Dating of the Greek book of Enoch

I haven't been able to find the word κόσμιος in any of the greek Enoch texts that I have, nor on the net. And I am not aware of any aramaic fragments of ch. 20:2-4. J Milik has 8:1 in aramaic, but the word for ornaments is there between brackets. Could you tell me where to find those examples you r...

Re: Dating of the Greek book of Enoch

Which aramaic word, or words, was the greek translator interpreting as tou kosmou? Or which word or words could be translated that way in ancient Greek? ha rakia? ha tzeva? ha tzevaot? ha kesyil? ha eretz? ha shamayim? The surviving portions of Aramaic Enoch have כון where the Greek has κόσμος/κόσμ...

Re: Dating of the Greek book of Enoch

I see the verses mentioned as referring to astronomical objects, stars, planets, and therefore interpret kosmos, in these cases, as meaning constellations, orders of stars, or lights. ... the word kosmos had an astronomical meaning, as in LXX and other Greek writers. Where in LXX and other Greek wr...

Re: Dating of the Greek book of Enoch

Thank you for the answer, it has helped me a lot. The reason for the question is that I am trying to find out in which time period the word kosmos in the Greek Book of Enoch should be set. In the LXX, it has an astronomical meaning, besides order, ornament, world, while in NT the astronomical meani...
