Re: Deut 6:8 Translation Issue

My question: is there similar Hebrew word to or something that can be done with the vowel pointing of  לְטֹטָפֹ֖ת To explain the renderings of the versions, or are we likely looking at a different Vorlage altogether? I don't think we're looking at different Vorlage s here, as the parallel passage i...

Re: Translating a Second Temple Aramaic text into Greek

For those interested, a transcription of the Aramaic of Enoch from among the Dead Sea Scrolls manuscripts is available on Google books (at least for a few of the manuscripts anyway): https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=ay2eBQAAQBAJ&pg=PA199&lpg=PA199&dq=%D7%9B%D7%95%D7%99%D7%AA%D7%90%D7%84&source=bl...

Re: Translating a Second Temple Aramaic text into Greek

The Aramaic is as follows: 4Q201 ח֯ז֯וׄ לכן לדׄגׄלי [קיטא …כוי]ה ושלקה ואנׄתׄןׄ [טלל ומסתר]יןׄ בׄעין מן קדמ֯יה [‏…ולמ]דׄרךׄ ע֯לׄ ע֯פ֯[ר]ה֯ [ועל כפיה] ל֯א תשכחון מ֯ן [… 4Q204 ‏… ב֯הׄון כוׄייה ושלקה֯ […‏ ‏…כוי]תאׄ ולמדרךׄ […‏ Eclectic: ח֯ז֯וׄ לכן לדׄגׄלי [קיטא די שמש]א ב֯הׄון כוׄייה ושלקה ואנׄתׄןׄ [ט...

Re: 2 Corinthians 8:19

You are quite right Matthew - ἡμῶν is 'our'; 'your' would be ὑμῶν. So it's either a typo in the handbook, or there may possibly be an alternative reading that has ὑμῶν as opposed to ἡμῶν at the end which the Baylor handbook was using. Quite possibly Baylor's handbook is based on the Textus Receptus,...

Re: Texts of non biblical papyri

You've also got the first 17 issues of the Oxyrhynchus Papyri on archive.org: https://tinyurl.com/y6ds5kmb

Though you will likely find quite a few of those papyri in the volumes on papyri.info.

Re: "remember me" is unclickable

Hi Tim, I think it's something to do with the exact URL that you use. I remember having this problem, but once I changed my B-Greek bookmark to point to https://www.ibiblio.org/bgreek/forum/index.php , everything has been fine since. I believe it's if you have it without the www. it doesn't seem to ...

Re: Martyrdom of Polycarp animated film in Koine Greek (with subtitles)

That's an absolutely fantastic film, Benjamin!

You speak clearly and not too fast. It was easily followed when I was both listening and reading the subtitles.

Also very nice that YT allows you to remove the subtitles. Be good practise for everyone :)

Re: Infinitive Subjects of ἐγένετο

Well yeah, I've certainly "jumped the gun" a bit on this one. Just done my own search in Acts, and found nothing like "indefinite-subject ἐγένετο followed by time margin (often ἐν+infinitive) followed by a finite verb (+/- conjunction for the finite verb)". The only thing close enough was one that h...

Re: Scribes don’t augment right

2. I ton of them were for any verb beginning with ευ which remained unaugmented instead of the expected ηυ, regardless of whether it was imperfect or aorist. I am not sure though whether I should view that as a conjugational feature, or whether it should be treated as an alternative spelling. It se...
