Re: forms of hYFISTHMI

Thanks, Carl, but now I might need a little more help here . . .
I'd say that ὑποστᾶσαν is the 2nd aor. ptc. of ὑφίσταμαι, while ὑποστήσασαν is the 1st aor. ptc. of ὑφίστημι
I believe ὑφίσταμαι is the middle/passive form of ὑφίστημι--right? So is ὑποστᾶσαν a middle/passive participle?

forms of hYFISTHMI

Ephiphanius quotes Aetius thus: Εἰ δὲ αὐτὸς ἑαυτῷ τὸ εἶναι μὴ παρέσχεν, οὐ διὰ τὸ ἀσθενὲς τῆς φύσεως, ἀλλὰ διὰ τὸ ὑπερβεβηκέναι πᾶσαν αἰτίαν, πόθεν ἄν τις τὴν ὑποστᾶσαν πρὸς τὴν ὑποστήσασαν φύσιν τὸ ἀπαράλλακτον εἰς οὐσίαν ἔχειν συγχωρήσειεν, οὐ προσιεμένης τῆς τοιαύτης ὑποστάσεως. I think I've got ...

Chime in? I could play a whole carillon concert--if enough people were willing to buy tickets to hear it. Lol

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

Doing a quick, random drop-in here. Verse 5 is kind of a mess, no? Both “every place of the mountain will be Seion” and “Seion will be every place of the mountain” strike me as nonsensical. Is it possible to understand καὶ ἥξει καὶ ἔσται as "it will come to pass that" and solve the problem you note ...

Re: Difficult sentence in Chrysostom

Thanks, Carl. Your way on 2 doesn't require cheating with regard to that τῷ, but it didn't occur to me at all. How usual is this usage without a preposition (maybe εν τω . . . αναφερεσθαι) ?

Re: Difficult sentence in Chrysostom

3. The subject of αφιησι is the same as the subject of είπε, presumably either the apostle or the scripture. It (or he) no longer leaves room for this contention (no longer permits this argument to have room).

Re: Difficult sentence in Chrysostom

1. They would say that the δι ου and θεος go together, are a pair, such that one is proper to the other. 2. The tricky bit is the second τω. I think it functions a a relative pronoun, whereby. So λέγοντας is followed in indirect discourse by two "clauses," one main (they would say that "δι ου" match...

Re: Series on Greek Isaiah

This is great. And what you're doing demonstrates the utility of the new Forum format. I don't think you could have done this with the email list. Tentative suggestion, Ken--is there any reason not to (re-) post the text with each little section of commentary? (for people like me who aren't necessar...

apocryphal gospels diglot

[For the moderators: So do NT apocrypha and pseudepigrapha belong in this section of the list, or does "Pseudepigrapha" in "Septuagint and Pseudepigrapha" mean "OT pseudepigrapha"? Maybe the "church fathers" section should be renamed to create a section for early Christian texts outside the NT not r...

Re: bibliography management software

Does the freestanding alpha work OK, or would I need to switch from Chrome to Firefox?
