Re: Isaiah 4:5 - πᾶς τόπος τοῦ ὄρους Σειὼν...

Hello, James.

I just wanted to let you know that I've split your post off of the main discussion to allow for it to be answered directly. This is what we're discussing in the thread Where to make comments on verses? by Louis Sorenson.

Regards.

Re: Where to make comments on verses?

That would seem the most reasonable option. Posts that are made in the notes thread would likely be overlooked or divided up by further notes, etc. Additionally, creating more threads in the subforum would serve to populate it so that it doesn't remain with only about 66 superstuffed threads. This w...

Hi, Paul. Welcome to the forum. Just wanted to let you know that I deleted the duplicate thread. Everything should be in order now. There may be a few more posts that you need to make and have approved before you'll have full posting privileges. It's a safety procedure against spam. I don't have inf...

It's even better in Greek, since it also plays on the names Κῦρος and Κύριος (rather than "Yahweh"). 8-)

Re: Isaiah Chapter 2

I found it interesting that ἀνίημι in verse six means almost the exact opposite of what it means in verse 9. I've noticed that the Greeks had no problem using the same word in very different, even opposite senses, in the same passage, with no sense of punning. I don't think we do that as much in En...

Οἱ ἐβασίλευσαν τῆς Ιουδαίας.
Shouldn't this be Οἳ ἐβασίλευσαν instead of Οἱ ἐβασίλευσαν? It's the relative pronoun, isn't it?

Re: What does this text mean? Romans 3:23

" This passage simply states that everybody fails, everybody misses it." It sounds really good to me. So, do you think the translation of "can't receive" for "ὑστεροῦνται" could be missing the point? If I may respond to this, yes - I feel this misses the essence of what the Greek is saying. It is s...

Re: Kai

Yes, καί means "even" at times, when we can take the two things joined as the same thing, the second being a restatement of the first. I wouldn't necessarily translate Luke 1:35 that way. Not saying that it couldn't be done, but I wouldn't read it that way. I think that the two things are different ...

Welcome to the forum, Dewayne. ?מתי נשוב לכתוב איש לרעהו (Then, I remember how much easier it is to type in modern Hebrew! ?מתי נתחיל להתכתב מחדש) I hope you're doing well.
