Re: Help for a translation

Right, the difference is that I took σέ as the subject of the infinitive rather than the object, which I think makes better sense out of the ὅτι clause, but I'm also annoyed at having to exegete this sentence, since I'm getting older and grumpier. Your reading is also possible. I'm about to hit for...

I don't remember a message from you. Could you send me a PM. I'll fix it right now. :ugeek:

And I certainly apologize on our behalf if we got the message but missed it. Thanks for your attention to this.

Re: Help for a translation

I would render something like "Child, we are under great obligation to our parents even for you to be mindful that the one who sins against his parents sins twice." I took both χάριν and ενθυμεῖσθαι as objects of ὀφείλομεν . That is, we owe our parents thanks and we also owe them to look after you.

Re: Help for a translation

Jason, you're right regarding the hortatory subjunctive. I'm not sure about your interpretation of the whole sentence though. No problem. We all have our different readings of texts. ;) If there were more context, we might be able to come to some agreement. For the purposes of housekeeping, have yo...

Re: Help for a translation

οφειλομεν means to be obligated, ie. with respect to parents (τοıς γονευσıν) be filial. The ομεν ending has a hortatory sense, "let us be...". Shouldn't the hortatory be in the subjunctive rather than the indicative? τοῖς γονεῦσıν ὀφείλομεν should just be read as "we are obligated to our parents," ...

Re: Gospel of Mark FILM in Koine Greek

תודה! וכל הכבוד שאתה מבין האנשים שיכולים לדבר עברית ויוונית! I know you teach Hebrew, right? Do you also teach Greek anywhere? I don't think I'm qualified to teach Greek. I think it's important to be a language model, and I cannot model speech in the Greek language. That said, I learned Greek from ...

Re: 1 Thessalonians 4:16: Voice of the archangel or voice of the trumpet?

I'm sure that you could find study buddies if you put feelers out on Textkit, for example, or even here on B-Greek! There are always people ready and willing to work through Mounce's Basics of Biblical Greek . The release of the new edition of the grammar and workbook might get you even more takers ...

Re: 1 Thessalonians 4:16: Voice of the archangel or voice of the trumpet?

"Voice" ( φωνή ) is a noun. It's gender doesn't change by context. It's always feminine. It would not switch to masculine to agree with "archangel" ( ἀρχάγγελος ) nor to feminine to agree with "trumpet" ( σάλπινξ ). "Voice of (an/the) archangel" is φωνὴ ἀρχαγγέλου . "Voice/sound of a trumpet" is φων...
