Re: συνεχύθη in Acts 2.6

Hi Barry, Thanks for your comment on Jerome's rendering of קרן which resulted in the horned Moses. I'm considering a blog post on that for my second Latin piece in the Ancient Language Aids category. As I don't have access to HALOT, I appreciate the citation. I will consider it along with other dat...

Re: συνεχύθη in Acts 2.6

Here is a translation of the passage from Perseus, by William Whiston: Manethe adds, "how this namesake of his told him that he might see the gods, if he would clear the whole country of the lepers and of the other impure people; that the king was pleased with this injunction, and got together all ...

How about this?
Josephus Against Apion Book 1 section 236:
εἶναι δέ τινας ἐν αὐτοῖς
1.236
καὶ τῶν λογίων ἱερέων φησὶ λέπρᾳ συγκεχυμένους
Are you sure about that? You might want to check it again.

Re: The 'Lucian Pronunciation' of Koine Greek

Via Erasmeana sempiterna erit! :lol:

Sorry, just thought to inject a bit of humor (et Latine melius semper sonat).

Re: συνεχύθη in Acts 2.6

Well, Luke obviously wasn't writing in epic style, but especially Acts 17 suggests that he had some familiarity with classical literature. He quotes some Greek poets, but I've been thinking there are also echoes of Plato's Apology of Socrates in the Areopagus speech, as well as echoes of Aeschylus'...

Re: συνεχύθη in Acts 2.6

Hi Barry, first, full disclosure: the closest I ever got to Latin was French. But here is a verse from the Vulgate, Exodus 34:35: qui videbant faciem egredientis Mosi esse cornutam sed operiebat rursus ille faciem suam si quando loquebatur ad eos And here is the Septuagint rendering of the same pas...

Re: συνεχύθη in Acts 2.6

Thanks to Barry, also. There are a few things I'd like to go into in your reply, but I'm afraid it might be considered off topic. One would be how reliable Jerome can be considered as a translator. He's famous for at least one blunder in the case of Exodus 34. I wonder why he wouldn't have checked ...

Re: Colors in Ancient Greek

I clarified that Batr. in LSJ stands for Homerus Epicus [Hom.] Batr. = Batrachomyomachia (q.v.) This is (Pseudo)Homer's 'The Battle of the Frogs and Mice'. Here's the quotation: Οὐχ οὕτω νώτοισιν ἐβάστασε φόρτον ἔρωτος ταῦρος ὅτ’ Εὐρώπην διὰ κύματος ἦγ’ ἐπὶ Κρήτην ὡς μῦν ἁπλώσας ἐπινώτιον ἦγεν ἐς ο...

Re: συνεχύθη in Acts 2.6

You are absolutely right that we are a long way from Galilee both in physical distance and in language. But so were the people who translated the Bible into European languages. Individually we need to have the humility to take that to heart, but as the church we need to also have the humility to re...
