Re: Hebrews 10:25 the implied object of παρακαλοῦντες

Barry suggested that it would be unusual to have an impersonal noun as the object of παρακαλοῦντες, which is true. But, as Dimi pointed out, the ‘complete’ object (τὴν ἐπισυναγωγὴν ἑαυτῶν) is essentially personal. This is wrong. There is no "complete object." ἐπισυναγωγήν is the object of ἐγκαταλεί...

Hebrews 10:25 the implied object of παρακαλοῦντες

Hebrews 10:25 μὴ ἐγκαταλείποντες τὴν ἐπισυναγωγὴν ἑαυτῶν, καθὼς ἔθος τισίν, ἀλλὰ παρακαλοῦντες, καὶ τοσούτῳ μᾶλλον ὅσῳ βλέπετε ἐγγίζουσαν τὴν ἡμέραν. While all of the English translations I’m aware of gloss Hebrews 10:25 something like “not abandoning our meetings/gatherings ... but encouraging each...

Re: Wwho or what is the referent of αὐτῶν in Mk. 9:48

Maybe it's a quotation from Isaiah 66:24, in which the plural pronoun refers the people who sinned against God. It's not an exact quotation; the pronoun is the same, but the verb tense differs: ὁ γὰρ σκώληξ αὐτῶν οὐ τελευτήσει.

he became poor (he was rich), so that you, through his poverty ... he became poor -- he was rich! -- so that you, through is poverty ... Translation is hard.

Re: Construing the participle in 2 Corinthians 8:9

I think “parallelism” is the term Jonathan was looking for too, a structural parallelism of terms not grammar … Jonathan, you say this text has not been handled well in the English translations. So here’s one that tries to honor the parallel structure he outlined, even though the order needs to be r...

IMHO, the only thing interesting in the syntax is the placement of πλούσιος ὤν after the verb ἐπτώχευσεν.

Would this be a very dramatic way of creating a relative clause that contrasts Jesus' wealth by smashing the verb 'became poor' against the adjective 'wealthy'?

Construing the participle in 2 Corinthians 8:9

γινώσκετε γὰρ τὴν χάριν τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ [Χριστοῦ], ὅτι δι᾽ ὑμᾶς ἐπτώχευσεν πλούσιος ὤν , ἵνα ὑμεῖς τῇ ἐκείνου πτωχείᾳ πλουτήσητε. 2 Corinthians 8:9 Is there anything in the syntax of the clause beginning with ὅτι that tells us to construe the participial phrase πλούσιος ὤν as concessive? All o...
