Re: Mark 7:10-13 Anacoluthon?

I think you do not understand what I am getting at. If "αφιετε" is not imperative, then as I see it the only way to read the whole thing is as follows: but you say: if [a] man says to the father or the mother: whatever you might have benefited from me is korban (that is, [a] gift) ... you [also] no...

Re: Mark 7:10-13 Anacoluthon?

In reference to the verses cited by Jordan, 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 ...

Re: Mark 7:10-13 Anacoluthon?

Thank you very much for your informative reply Alex. Perhaps this isn't an anacoluthon per se, but am I wrong that this still doesn't look right? I understand that an apodosis wouldn't necessarily have to agree with the protasis in "person". As you mentioned, it is something we do all the time in E...

Jordan cited Mark 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, ἀκυροῦν...

Re: Imperative forms and usage

Scott - and others - might find interesting a previous thread on the earlier version of B-Greek. Ward Powers, whose text book Learn to Read the Greek New Testament may be known to some, wrote, In Greek Class last night a question was raised about the tense of the imperative FEUGE in Matthew 2:13 and...

Re: Stephen Carlson

Before too much time passes, I'd also like to express congratulations to you, Stephen, for gaining your PhD. It's something to celebrate, and as one of those who have read with profit the contributions you've made to B-Greek I wish you all the best and applaud your achievement. Now watch out for all...

Re: Exo 6:5 - των υιων ισραηλ ον

Exodus 6:5 καὶ ἐγὼ εἰσήκουσα τὸν στεναγμὸν τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ ὃν οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι καταδουλοῦνται αὐτούς καὶ ἐμνήσθην τῆς διαθήκης ὑμῶν (Exo 6:5 BGT) Ken, You have the advantage of the Hebrew to guide us. Looking at the Greek, which does look a little odd to my eye, I wondered whether it were better to take...

Re: Heb 1.3 ποιησάμενος

There is a range of periphrastic constructions where ποιέω with a noun is used instead of a simple verb; significantly, however, in classical Greek it is the middle form of ποιέω that is used in such constructions. And so it is that Turner says, "The middle was the rule in class. Greek, and in some ...

Re: Public domain / freely available lexicons?

Thanks to Devenios and to Ken for their responses - both are helpful to me. Thanks Devenios, I'll have another look at Diogenes; I was able to install the software easily enough but unsure about where to find the data files and how and where to install them on a PC. I'll have another crack at it. Th...

Re: verbal aspect (split from Beginner's Forum)

Mike Aubrey noted my approvingly citing the following quote from Johnson: First of all, Campbell begins his analysis of the perfect by demonstrating that the definitions of McKay, Porter, and Fanning are inadequate. The problem with this analysis is that he has misrepresented the definitions of each...
