In Revelation 20:2-7 is χίλια ἔτη "a thousand" or "thousands"?

[Rev 20:2-7 MGNT] (2) καὶ ἐκράτησεν τὸν δράκοντα ὁ ὄφις ὁ ἀρχαῖος ὅς ἐστιν Διάβολος καὶ ὁ Σατανᾶς καὶ ἔδησεν αὐτὸν χίλια ἔτη (3) καὶ ἔβαλεν αὐτὸν εἰς τὴν ἄβυσσον καὶ ἔκλεισεν καὶ ἐσφράγισεν ἐπάνω αὐτοῦ ἵνα μὴ πλανήσῃ ἔτι τὰ ἔθνη ἄχρι τελεσθῇ τὰ χίλια ἔτη μετὰ ταῦτα δεῖ λυθῆναι αὐτὸν μικρὸν χρόνον (...

Thanks for the explanation, Nathaniel.

What about the question of whether you meant "be alive" vs "have conduct"?

Re: What is the function of ἐν in Galatians 3:12?

For ζάω not so much conduct one's life or retain one's live, as simply to live = be alive = have life. Could we say "stays alive"? I.e. as long as one is "in" the law. That the things a person are the domain metaphorical container *in which* they live. I don't understand MAubrey's syntax, but proba...

So you are not taking ζήσεται as "[gain/retain] the state of being alive" but rather as "conduct"?

Just translate it 'in'.
When I read it as "in" it does not communicate any meaning to me, at least not an unambiguous meaning. What does "in" communicate to you in this context?

By the way, I find it fascinating that Matthew 4:4 uses yet another preposition to link with ζήσεται !

Re: What is the function of ἐν in Galatians 3:12?

Okay, I see it. So it is "shall live by/because of/on account of [doing?] them".
Mat 4:4 MGNT - ὁ δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς εἶπεν γέγραπται οὐκ ἐπ᾽ ἄρτῳ μόνῳ ζήσεται ὁ ἄνθρωπος ἀλλ᾽ ἐπὶ παντὶ ῥήματι ἐκπορευομένῳ διὰ στόματος θεοῦ
Thanks Jonathon; makes sense.

Re: What is the function of ἐν in Galatians 3:12?

Okay, so "live according to their guidance"? Or " by means of obeying them, gain life"?

What does "by" suggest in that context?

Thanks.

What is the function of ἐν in Galatians 3:12? Gal 3:12 MGNT - ὁ δὲ νόμος οὐκ ἔστιν ἐκ πίστεως ἀλλ᾽ ὁ ποιήσας αὐτὰ ζήσεται ἐν αὐτοῖς He's obviously quoting the OT: Lev 18:5 LXX - καὶ φυλάξεσθε πάντα τὰ προστάγματά μου καὶ πάντα τὰ κρίματά μου καὶ ποιήσετε αὐτά ἃ ποιήσας ἄνθρωπος ζήσεται ἐν αὐτοῗς ἐγὼ...
