Does Mark 13:14 sync best with the Hebrew or Greek of Daniel 9:27?

I posted this question elsewhere but think it might best be answered by those who are most immersed in Koine. Does Mark 13:14 LXX easily serve as the source for Mark 13:14? Or is this more easily aligned with the Hebrew? https://hermeneutics.stackexchange.com/questions/46954/does-mark-1314-allude-to...

Re: In Philippians 2:10 what is the function of ἐν?

Thank you Nathaniel.

So would it be fair to say that "at the name of Jesus" is somewhat of an attending circumstance for the main event which is the confession of all "that Jesus Christ is LORD to the glory of God, the Father"?

Colossians 2:16 ἐν μέρει ἑορτῆς

In an online conversation with a preacher who preaches that anyone who doesn't observe the sabbaths and holy feast days is condemned I responded with Colossians 2:16: [Col 2:16 NLT] (16) So don't let anyone condemn you for what you eat or drink, or for not celebrating certain holy days or new moon c...

Re: In Revelation 7:14, is there a grammatical reason why ἐκ shouldn't be read "since"?

Thanks to all for your excellent feedback on this post. As a result I have come to a different understanding and am abandoning the temporal view I was investigating. "Since" is too unlikely with "coming". --- If you are interested, what I think I see now is that the 144,000 represent those killed in...

Regarding the present particple, οἱ ἐρχόμενοι ἐκ... Does that suggest that even though they are of a vast number, they are still coming?

Re: In Revelation 7:14, is there a grammatical reason why ἐκ shouldn't be read "since"?

While ἐκ can occasionally bear a temporal sense, that doesn't really seem to fit the context here. So not so much a "grammatical" reason, but contextual. "The great tribulation" is an event, and the text is talking about the people who are no longer involved in it, but are now present before the th...
