Re: hoi douloi/hai doulai

LXX translates the word "slaves" in Exodus 21:7 as hai doulai (female slaves). In original word in Hebrew says "slaves", which in Hebrew means primarily male slaves, but also male-and-female slaves (in Hebrew, if you use a plural masculine form it may reffer to masculine only, but also to both male...

Re: Article with Events

From what I have seen: Obviously it is common in the NT for a previously mentioned SOMETHING to have an article to point back to the original mention. However, even then this doesn’t cross over books. Ie. If Luke mentions something anarthrously, if say one of the other gospels mention the same even...

Acts 9:24 τε

Can someone help me understand the function of τε in this context?
Acts 9:23-25 wrote:ἐγνώσθη δὲ τῷ Σαύλῳ ἡ ἐπιβουλὴ αὐτῶν. παρετηροῦντο δὲ καὶ τὰς πύλας ἡμέρας τε καὶ νυκτὸς ὅπως αὐτὸν ἀνέλωσιν·

Re: Acts 9:15 ἐνώπιον ἐθνῶν τε καὶ βασιλέων υἱῶν τε Ἰσραήλ

I went and looked for some other interesting cases combining τε and καί. (This is the way I learn and make up for holes in my knowledge ... active learning always helps me.) Here are a few with diagrams showing how I understood them. Feel free to correct ... Rom.1.14 Ἕλλησίν τε καὶ Βαρβάροις, σοφοῖς...

Re: Acts 9:15 ἐνώπιον ἐθνῶν τε καὶ βασιλέων υἱῶν τε Ἰσραήλ

Thanks, Barry - I can now see how I misread this τε καί, which still messes me up sometimes. I obviously need to spend a little time mastering this construction (blush) ... So I should read it like this? ἐνώπιον τε ἐθνῶν καὶ βασιλέων τε υἱῶν Ἰσραήλ Can I just think of each word in τε καί individuall...

Acts 9:15 ἐνώπιον ἐθνῶν τε καὶ βασιλέων υἱῶν τε Ἰσραήλ

εἶπεν δὲ πρὸς αὐτὸν ὁ κύριος, Πορεύου, ὅτι σκεῦος ἐκλογῆς ἐστίν μοι οὗτος τοῦ βαστάσαι τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐνώπιον ἐθνῶν τε καὶ βασιλέων υἱῶν τε Ἰσραήλ If there are three items in this list, something deep inside me wants a τε for βασιλέων, something like this: ἐνώπιον ἐθνῶν τε καὶ βασιλέων τε καὶ υἱῶν Ἰσ...
