Re: Why is λόγος consistently translated as "word"?

@RandallButh: is there a reason why the all-purpose prayer shifts from the 2nd person to the 3rd person? Reading that, I was expecting it to end בדברך ("through Your word") and not בדברו ("through His word").

Re: Ἱεροσόλυμα and ἱερός

No, Ἱεροσόλυμα is just the Greek transliteration of the Hebrew ירושלים. The beginning of the transliteration, Ἱερο-, has no correlation with any Greek word - it's just transliterated Hebrew in Greek characters.

Please differ to the advice given you in the other topic, Robin :)

Re: ἔνδοξος and εὐδόκησεν

What is a good source for LXX translation of Greek words to Hebrew word. "Study Light" website shows Hebrew מַחְמָד (machmad) translates to only ‑ ἔνδοξος . I do not know why it is not showing επιθυμία Because the "Study Light" website doesn't show that מַחְמָד "translates to only" ἔνδοξος, but mer...

Re: 1 Tim 1:7 - μὴ... μήτε

Hi Davis, Firstly, it's 1 Tim 1:7 not 3:7 (had me confused for a second or two), and it's best to understand the first μήτε as "either", giving, "Desiring to be teachers of the Law, yet not understanding either what they are saying or what they assert". Though there is no reason why the initial μήτε...

Re: Genesis 34:3

I'll just post a link to LSJ for the lexical definition: ... arqe%2Fnos

Can mean "maiden, girl, virgin, unmarried woman who is not a virgin, unmarried woman, chaste, unmarried man".

Context defines meaning, as usual :)

Re: Pronunciation of initial I in Semitic names

Not quite sure what you mean by 'value' of the letter Iota, but in this case Greek ι = Hebrew י, which is a vowel-consonant (used to represent both a vowel and a consonant), and as such is very much a consonant at the beginning of Semitic names. For the pronunciation of ι, then see https://www.bibli...
