Re: The Genitive affect upon δικαιοσύνης

I am asking if the genitive in righteousness can be translated as "your righteousness" since it is possessive and Paul is addressing people. No, you can't.

The particular phrase you are looking at is a simple apposition:

Re: 1 Tim 5:17 διπλῆς τιμῆς

I've always taken it as both kinds of τιμη – honor and remuneration.

Re: Hendiadys?

I'm still not entirely following the logic of the proposed interpretation referenced in the original post. The significance of the get (βιβλίον ἀποστασίου) is to free the divorced woman for remarriage. For the husband to dismiss his wife without granting her the legal paperwork leaves her in a very...
