Re: κατίωται

Thank you very much. This really helps. Is there a book I can buy that explains things the way you just did for the "difficult" words? Will Mounce's Morphology of Biblical Greek do the trick?

κατίωται

ὁ χρυσὸς ὑμῶν καὶ ὁ ἄργυρος κατίωται καὶ ὁ ἰὸς αὐτῶν εἰς μαρτύριον ὑμῖν ἔσται καὶ φάγεται τὰς σάρκας ὑμῶν· ὡς πῦρ. ἐθησαυρίσατε ἐν ἐσχάταις ἡμέραις. James 5:3 Why is κατίωται perfect tense? Where is the duplication? Shouldn't it be κεκατίωται? Or is it a compound verb with κατά? How do you tell apar...

Re: Missing Parenthesis in Trenchard

Of the 15 times ξηραίνω appears in the NT, 10 times are in the form ἐξηράνθη. Of these, 1) 7 refer to trees or plants or branches withering or drying up (Matt 13:6, 21:19, 21:20, Mk 4:6, Lk 8:6, Jn 15:6, 1Pet 1:24), 2) 1 refers to the healed woman's blood drying up (Mk 5: 29), 3) 1 refers to water d...

Missing Parenthesis in Trenchard

Trenchard, when giving English glosses for a verb, usually uses a parenthesis to explain the usage for glosses after a semicolon: νομίζω - I think, believe, suppose; am the custom (pass) But for this next word, someone seems to have forgotten the parenthesis: ξηραίνω - I dry; dry up, wither, stop, b...

I've been looking for information on Greek diminutives and found an amazing 17 page article in the Journal of Biblical Literature. And it's free, too! ;)

Re: Romans 16.7 - "Natural Gender" and "Arbitrary Gender"?

Here's another weird-gender word:
γυναικάριον, ου, τό - idle or silly woman.

Even though it's a ἅπαξ λεγόμενον, I'm memorizing it as I'm certain it'll come in handy soon enough. :D

τῇ ὑγιαινούσῃ διδασκαλίᾳ (1 Timothy 1:10)

1 Timothy 1:10 reads: πόρνοις, ἀρσενοκοίταις, ἀνδραποδισταῖς, ψεύσταις, ἐπιόρκοις, καὶ εἴ τι ἕτερον τῇ ὑγιαινούσῃ διδασκαλίᾳ ἀντίκειται Why is τῇ ὑγιαινούσῃ διδασκαλίᾳ dative? In George W. Knight III's NIGTC commentary on the Pastoral Epistles, he has a brief, cryptic note on this (page 90): "Finall...
