Re: Help translating a text

Thanks for the response, it's a big help. A couple follow-up questions: • Good job not going totally literal on the cognate verb/noun combination (I think that’s a hebraism although perhaps it occurs in ‘real’ Greek as well). I’d go adverbial, like “Paul fervently desired" or such. When you say "cog...

Help translating a text

Hi guys, so I have another couple paragraphs from my textbook I'm having some trouble with if anyone wouldn't mind critiquing my translation. και Τιμόθεος ἐμαρτυρειτο καλως ὑπο παντων των αδελφων. τουτον επεθυμησεν Παυλος επιθυμία μεγαλη συν αυτω εξελθειν. οὑτως διηλθον οἱ τρεις, Παυλος και Σιλας κα...

Re: γενναω

What lexicon are you using? Here is Abbott-Smith: Well, actually that was the definition in my vocab list from my textbook. That entry from Abbott-Smith helps. 1) γενηθητω is a form of γινομαι, not γενναω. Oh, hmm. I guess γενναω would have the double nu? Would that be the only difference? That exp...

Re: γενναω

Another example would be in John 3, where it's used mostly in the passive voice. Why not the active? If the active means to be born?

γενναω

I'm having a hard time translating γενναω. Specifically, what's the difference between it and γινομαι? In the lexicon it says "be born, beget, or bring forth" but how would you translate it in the passive voice? An example: Matt. 6:10 "...γενηθητω το θελημα σου..." -I think the idea is "let your wil...

Re: help with textbook assignment

Looking at these translations, I wonder if "you have been kind enough to come (ESV)" or "it was good of you to come (NLT)" best fit the sense. Without the context, it really is difficult, but at least in the context of Acts 10:33, I like these translations. Right, the context is about Cornelius and...

Re: help with textbook assignment

Thanks for the responses. Operating system is windows 10. As for ἐποίησας, I was thinking it's a participle, but now that Robert pointed out the συ, I realize it's not, which also made me realize it wouldn't have the augment if it was a participle. So there's my first problem. Looking at it again, w...

help with textbook assignment

Hi guys, this is my first post, so have mercy on me. I've been learning Greek on my own with the textbook "Greek to me", and it's been a lot of fun. It has these fairly long translation assignments at the end of each chapter which I've been enjoying. However, the problem is I haven't been able to fi...
