Re: 1 Tim 1:7 - μὴ... μήτε

Right, it is more of an issue of how English handles such a phrase. I mainly don't like translations that combine the first compliment with μὴ νοοῦντες: "They do not know what they are talking about" -NIV, NLT "They do not what they are saying" -NET, HCSB I have a preference for translations that pl...

Re: 1 Tim 1:7 - μὴ... μήτε

Right, μὴ νοοῦντες ἃ λέγουσιν would be "not understanding what they are saying." Not μὴ νοοῦντες λέγουσιν. I think my issue with how this verse is rendered in English is that μὴ νοοῦντες doesn't seem to be as explicit the in governing the two following negations. The example in Mt 5:34 seems to be a...

More Songs in Ancient Greek: O Come All Ye Faithful

Inspired especially by Louis, my goal right now is to translate more songs into Greek. Perhaps get a whole Christmas album together? Here's a rough draft of O Come All Ye Faithful: O Come All Ye Faithful Joyful and triumphant, O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem. Come and behold Him, Born the King of ...

Re: Freely available recordings by native Greeks

Pella Ikonomaki has some available at librivox.org. http://librivox.org/newcatalog/people_public.php?peopleid=2754 Does anyone know much about the text that she uses? Her James recording says that it is from the Stephanos 1550 version. I googled it and couldn't find much background information on i...
