Re: Athanasius Contra Gentes

Right. I can't be bothered to use my hard copies of LSJ and Lampe and I was trying to read Contra Gentes w/o using a computer. That may be a lost cause. My study of On The Incarnation was done entirely on my Mac. Don't like to spend hours a day facing the glowing screen. But w/o access to hyperlink...

Re: Athanasius Contra Gentes

it still bothers me to have all the arguments stacked in front waiting for a verb to show up Or having a relative pronoun that sends you back, and back to find its antecedent, like the οὗ in Ephesians 3:7. Does "μόνον οὐχὶ... καὶ" seem to you "not just... [but] also"? That was my first thought, but...

Re: Athanasius Contra Gentes

Having recently completed a year long study of Athanasius De Incarnatione I spent a few days constructing a section by section (1.1 ... 47.4) diglot of Contra Gentes . My first pass at section 1 last week wasn't too bad. Something changed and now I am having difficulty with it. This morning the ver...

Re: Help for a translation

I concede to the χαρὶν ὀφείλειν point as well now, but Barry, surely I wasn't mostly wrong? I mean you and I came almost to the same translation. I try to steer away from interpreting every unfamiliar text like it's scripture though. Btw possibly to add to your irk, I don't think deponents exist :-...

Re: Help for a translation

I would render something like "Child, we are under great obligation to our parents even for you to be mindful that the one who sins against his parents sins twice." I took both χάριν and ενθυμεῖσθαι as objects of ὀφείλομεν . That is, we owe our parents thanks and we also owe them to look after you....

Re: Does the Didache say αφες ημιν την οφειλην ημων (Forgive us Our Debts) or is the phrase missing?

Text criticism lives! Hey, as a moderator, I can sometimes break the the "silly post/amen post" rule, right? But seriously, if you think about it, you guys did actual text critical work, comparing texts, considering the internal meaning if the text were omitted, and so forth. Let me suggest that bef...

Re: In Jeremiah 31:21 LXX what is the sense of τιμωρίαν?

That's Jer 38 :21 LXX, BTW. Something like "take vengeance." LES has "make retaliation." Now it gets a bit strange with the NETS rendering: "Set up for yourself sionim; make timorim..." Westcott and Ralfs both read Στῆσον σεαυτήν, Σιων, ποίησον τιμωρίαν. The NETS instead takes the words as translite...
