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 differenc...

Re: Who was loathed in Exodus 1:12?

Εβδελύσσοντο is middle/passive. And I understand the ἀπὸ + genitive construction can be interpreted as cause (because of) or agency (by) (Wallace, GGBB, 368). The NETS translation translates it as follows: "and the Egyptians were disgusted with the sons of Israel." This would, I'm guessing, be simi...

Who was loathed in Exodus 1:12?

The verse reads as follows: καθότι δὲ αὐτοὺς ἐταπείνουν, τοσούτῳ πλείους ἐγίνοντο καὶ ἴσχυον σφόδρα σφόδρα, καὶ ἐβδελύσσοντο οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι ἀπὸ τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ. Εβδελύσσοντο is middle/passive. And I understand the ἀπὸ + genitive construction can be interpreted as cause (because of) or agency (by) (Wal...

Re: Translating a Second Temple Aramaic text into Greek

Would someone please share advice on my translation of 1 Enoch 4:1? Again, I translated it from the Aramaic, as 4:1 is not extant in the Greek witnesses of 1 Enoch. Is it good Greek? Any suggestions? I have translated it as follows: ιδετε την θερειαν πως καυματιζεν και διεθέρμαινεν ο ηλιος και ζητει...

Re: Translating a Second Temple Aramaic text into Greek

For those who are interested, the Aramaic is as follows (taken from The Dead Sea Scrolls Study Edition , 4Q201 column 2 lines 4-6): חזו דכל אילניה כלהן מיבישין ברא מן ארבעת עסר אילנין דעליהן מתקימין עד דתרתין ותלת שנין יעברן A useful resource for this task is Milik's The Books of Enoch . There you ...

Re: Translating a Second Temple Aramaic text into Greek

Greek per se I think better to use straight verb (aorist or perfect) after πῶς ie. ἐξηράνθη ἀποπίπτω...ἀπό instead of πίπτω (aorist or perfect) εἰ μὴ not εἰ οὐκ not ζῆλος. ζωτικός perhaps, or ὑγρός... depending on the orig text and your interpretative leeway good Greek Hard to say what's good. Gram...

Translating a Second Temple Aramaic text into Greek

In the Greek of 1 Enoch, the scribe skipped over chapter 3 (which is just one verse). Since this section has not been preserved in Greek, but the Dead Sea Scrolls preserve this section, and assuming the Greek was translated from the Aramaic, I was trying to translate the Aramaic into Greek here to s...
