Re: Septuagint Commentary Series - Isaiah (21-Oct-2020)

A new volume in the Septuagint commentary series from Brill is coming out. I have their Genesis commentary and they do a great job discussing the Hebrew background behind some of the translations. They also deal nicely with the Greek grammar on its own terms. Thanks for the plug, Matthew. The Genes...

Re: Dating of the Greek book of Enoch

I haven't been able to find the word κόσμιος in any of the greek Enoch texts that I have, nor on the net. And I am not aware of any aramaic fragments of ch. 20:2-4. J Milik has 8:1 in aramaic, but the word for ornaments is there between brackets. Could you tell me where to find those examples you r...

Re: Dating of the Greek book of Enoch

Which aramaic word, or words, was the greek translator interpreting as tou kosmou? Or which word or words could be translated that way in ancient Greek? ha rakia? ha tzeva? ha tzevaot? ha kesyil? ha eretz? ha shamayim? The surviving portions of Aramaic Enoch have כון where the Greek has κόσμος/κόσμ...

Would you say that it has avoided some of the criticism levelled at the Theological Dictionary of the New/Old Testament?
I would say we tried to avoid those shortcomings!

Re: Dating of the Greek book of Enoch

I see the verses mentioned as referring to astronomical objects, stars, planets, and therefore interpret kosmos, in these cases, as meaning constellations, orders of stars, or lights. ... the word kosmos had an astronomical meaning, as in LXX and other Greek writers. Where in LXX and other Greek wr...

Re: Dating of the Greek book of Enoch

Thank you for the answer, it has helped me a lot. The reason for the question is that I am trying to find out in which time period the word kosmos in the Greek Book of Enoch should be set. In the LXX, it has an astronomical meaning, besides order, ornament, world, while in NT the astronomical meani...

Re: Dating of the Greek book of Enoch

Hello, Does anyone know if the Greek book of Enoch fragments have been dated (or believed to have been dated) - ie when the translations were made, from either Aramaic, or Geez? If not, may there be a way to determine its age by comparing it to the LXX, and to NT (and to other ancient greek literat...

I see that this article addresses Hab 2:5, but what is its relevance for our question regarding Hab 2:4?

ἵνα τί με ἐγκατέλιπες
Why is this hina clause not in subjunctive mood?
The ἵνα clause has no verb. It's just ἵνα τί. You could think of it as "You abandoned me in order to what?" if it helps you to English it differently.
