Mark 7:10-13 Anacoluthon?

ΚΑΤΑ ΜΑΡΚΟΝ 7:10-13 Μωϋσῆς γὰρ εἶπεν· τίμα τὸν πατέρα σου καὶ τὴν μητέρα σου, και· ὁ κακολογῶν πατέρα ἢ μητέρα θανάτῳ τελευτάτῳ. ὑμεῖς δὲ λέγετε · ἐὰν εἴπῃ ἄνθρωπος τῷ πατρὶ ἢ τῇ μητρί· κορβᾶν ὅ ἐστιν δῶρον, ὃ ἐὰν ἐξ ἐμοῦ ὠφεληθῇς , οὐκέτι ἀφίετε αὐτὸν οὐδὲν ποιῆσαι τῷ πατρὶ ἢ τῇ μητρί , ἀκυροῦντες ...

Re: υ before ξ

Where does τεῦξις occur in the NT? I see it in my Middle Liddell but not in BDAG. ἔντευξις appears at 1 Tim 2:1 and 4:5. There ντ is softened to nd and aids in pronunciation. Would τεῦξις be from a prior era of pronunciation? BTW what happens to pronunciation when a consonantal vowel has an accent?...

Re: υ before ξ

Louis L Sorenson wrote:ξ = κς. Both consonants are unvoiced (the vocal chords do not vibrate when making these sounds). So
I would expect that ευ would sound like εf. tefksis.
Ok. Thank you Louis. It is still difficult for my tongue, but I will practice this sound transition.

υ before ξ

I've been trying to transition to Buth's system for 2 weeks now, and I am having difficulty pronouncing the word τεῦξις. I assume the "υ" has the [v-victory] sound and not the [f-fight]. But I must be doing something wrong because it sounds like I am saying two separate words (guttural stop?). Tev-k...

Re: Matt 7:14 τί or ότι

I think he is asking about a different usage? (in Matt 7:14 "τι" means "how...!" and "οτι" would mean "because"; in John 8:25 the discussion was on whether "οτι" can mean "why...?") I asked the same question about Matt 7:14 last year here: Matt 7:14 - τι Yes! Thank you very much for the link David....

Matt 7:14 τί or ότι

13 Εἰσέλθατε διὰ τῆς στενῆς πύλης· ὅτι πλατεῖα ἡ πύλη καὶ εὐρύχωρος ἡ ὁδὸς ἡ ἀπάγουσα εἰς τὴν ἀπώλειαν, καὶ πολλοί εἰσιν οἱ εἰσερχόμενοι δι’ αὐτῆς· 14 [ὅ]τι στενὴ ἡ πύλη καὶ τεθλιμμένη ἡ ὁδὸς ἡ ἀπάγουσα εἰς τὴν ζωήν, καὶ ὀλίγοι εἰσὶν οἱ εὑρίσκοντες αὐτήν. Metzger says: "Besides having wide external...

Hello. My name is Jordan Day, and I live in Pine Log, Georgia. I have no formal education at all (barely made it through high school!), so please excuse my bad grammar when my "southern dialect" takes over (not to mention that the construction and maintenance fields are not the best environments for...

Re: Mark 11:3 ἀποστέλλει

My guesses... 1) early scribal error (see W et pauci)...though highly unlikely 2) Mark's Jesus is stressing the expeditious return of the borrowed donkey. 3) Mark's vulgar/vernacular style occasionally produces unexpected verb tenses (as well as asyndeta and anacolutha) 4) Mark is less concerned wit...
