Re: Preverbal anarthrous predicate nouns; are they qualitati

I'm not sure if I'm on the right track (in regards to your question), but if you're looking for examples of preverbal anarthrous predicate nouns that are qualitative and an example that is definite, here they are (taken from Wallace): Example of preverbal anarthrous predicate nouns that is qualitati...

Re: Two questions on Romans 1:26

thanxs for catching that David - it is definitely τοῦτο in my Greek NT. I really like the way you've translated εις την παρα φυσιν (basically "for that which is in contrast to nature") - that makes sense to me and it is identical to how παρὰ (object in the accusative) was used in the previ...

Re: Two questions on Romans 1:26

Thanxs - whew, everytime I saw that αἵ because it is identical to the relative pronoun I just thought it was the relative pronoun (so I never could have imagined it was a definite article). You wouldn't know if the παρὰ φύσιν is an idiom (i.e meaning "unnatural"), or is there a logical way...

Re: Two questions on Romans 1:26

Thanxs for the info. Is it "OK" to say that the αἵ τε has the definite article for θήλειαι (it's just that the τε has caused the αἱ to receive an acute accent). Or may be to say it another way, the parsing code for αἵ is "definite article, nom pl fem

Two questions on Romans 1:26

Hi: I have a question on the αἵ and the παρὰ in Romans 1:26. Here's the text: διὰ τοῦ παρέδωκεν αὐτοὺς ὁ θεὸς εἰς πάθη ἀτιμίας, αἵ τε γὰρ θήλειαι αὐτῶν μετήλλαξαν τὴν φυσικὴν χρῆσιν εἰς τὴν παρὰ φύσιν Question1: In my UBS Greek NT with Texual Notes, it mentions that "ἡ θῆλυς" means "w...

Re: Why is the parsing code for ζῇ v.pai.3s

Thanxs Louis for the info!

I really like the fact that Funk lists all the 6 inflected forms for the tense (Mounce has a few examples with all 6 forms, but I would rather see all 6),

Re: Why is the parsing code for ζῇ v.pai.3s

Thanxs for the info Stephen! I'll make a note of it in Mounce's book (the textbook seems to indicate the root is *ζα, and that the present stem is also *ζα),

Why is the parsing code for ζῇ v.pai.3s

Hi:

In Romans 6:10 we see ὃ δὲ ζῇ, ζῇ τῷ θεῷ, with ζῇ having parsing code "verb, present active indicative, 3s (v.pai.3s)".

But I would of thought the v.pai.3s of ζάω would be: ζα + ε + ι ==> ζᾳ (because α + ε contracts to α).

Re: Pronoun demands a referent 1 John 1

The referent (antecedant) of ὅ (which is neuter pronoun) can't be τοῦ λόγου (which is masc noun), since the antecedant of a pronoun must match in number-gender

Re: Matt 6:25: what clues are there that it is a question?

Thanxs for info David! After reading your post, I double-checked my lexicon and sure enough, some 10 entries below the entry "οὐ, οὐκ, οὐχ" is the entry οὐχι (not sure how I missed it).
