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.μὴ κατακαυχᾶσθε καὶ ψεύδεσθε
Thanks in advance!

Considering the context, one could hardly see ψεύδεσθε as a positive imperative - "go on continuing to lie !". But if that were so, one would probably not get a καὶ but an αllα (sorry - I've lost my lambda). So the καὶ is linking both imperatives to the μὴSteve Page wrote: ↑November 6th, 2020, 9:57 pm In James 3:14 I seeI'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.μὴ κατακαυχᾶσθε καὶ ψεύδεσθε
