Re: Help needed in Rev

Thank you! Euclid is available online (in German, I think probably in English as well) - the Greek might be a bit confusing at the first glance. But I understand the sentence as a mathematical sign of equation (as a "="). So transferred to Rev (and Joh often places numbers on the left, to stress it)...

Re: Help needed in Rev

>Is this the reading in the majority of these types of manuscripts? According to the new Text und Textwert volume and as known before, the majority in the revelation is divided between the three lines of K-Andrew-Complutensis and the reading with the number 12 is best attested, left out, probably be...

Re: Help needed in Rev

Help needed in Rev

Dear friends, can anyone help me to understand the last sentence in Revelation 21:16 (the Byz reading is the δώδεκα, left out by TR/NA, as it was too difficult, I think, but I want to translate Byz, with the number 12) : Καὶ ἡ πόλις τετράγωνος κεῖται, καὶ τὸ μῆκος αὐτῆς ὅσον τὸ πλάτος. Καὶ ἐμέτρησεν...

Reference of ἄξιοί in Rev 16,16

Dear friends, I stumbled reading the following sentence: ὅτι αἷμα ἁγίων καὶ προφητῶν ἐξέχεαν, καὶ αἷμα αὐτοῖς ἔδωκας πιεῖν· ἄξιοί εἰσιν. for they have poured out the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; they are worthy. How is the "ἄξιοί εἰσιν" connected to the text...

Re: νικάω + ἐκ in Rev. 15,2

As an addition, as I could not edit the former text: M. Psellus, In E. Nic. 549.6: "δυνατὸν δὲ αὐτοὺς νικῆσαι οὐκ ἐκ προφανοῦς πο- λέμου". "it is possible now that they win not out of a forseen battle". Same author (Oratoria min. 2.37: " ἀλλ’ ἐπὶ τῷ μάχεσθαι νικᾶν τε καὶ εἰρήνην ἐκ πολέμου ποιεῖν". ...

Re: νικάω + ἐκ in Rev. 15,2

Dear all, thank you for all your help so far - the discussion is of high value for me, as I feel not able to get along with that alone. Each contribution was combined with new insights for me. Stirling, I would provide a translation of Perseus for the quote of Thyc., which fits very good in this deb...

Re: νικάω + ἐκ in Rev. 15,2

Dear Jonathan, That's not really what an adjunct is. An adjunct is not an argument of the verb, it is not even a predicate. Consider these examples: s I v read o a writing + on chocolate milk Of course an adjunct is not part of the main clause predicate or depends syntactically on it, but stands by ...

Re: νικάω + ἐκ in Rev. 15,2

Dear Robert, to prove a Latin substratum for John would be hard for L. Mot - except for some loanwords, the direction is more towards a Aramaic/Hebrew substratum - but Mot is of value despite as the more plausible connection to the native language of John (A/H) could be checked. That is indeed somet...
