Mark 10:36 Τί θέλετέ [με] ποιήσω ὑμῖν;

I'm having trouble understanding the bracketed text of Mark 10:36b: Τί θέλετέ [με] ποιήσω ὑμῖν; Usually, it's translated as "What do you me to do for you?" but this could simply be translational inertia, reflecting either the grammatically smooth Textus Receptus Τί θέλετε ποιῆσαί με ὑμῖν; or the som...

Re: Rom. 4:1 "What then will we say?"

Rom. 4:1 Τί οὖν ἐροῦμεν εὑρηκέναι Ἀβραὰμ τὸν προπάτορα ἡμῶν κατὰ σάρκα; (SBL) My question is whether or not the rendering of Wright and Hays stretches the infinitive to far? Can the perfect active infinitive of εὑρίσκω be unpacked to ask the question, "have we found"? Is there any precedent for thi...

Re: Mt 1:19 AUTHN objcet or subject

Have you considered the possibility that αὐτήν is the object of the aorist infinitive παραδειγματίσαι?

According to BDAG, it seems that this verb is transitive and your reading does not have an (expressed) object.

Re: Passive Imperative

However, you said that ALL the passive imperatives are middle. Perhaps my understanding of the middle is too narrow, but there are a few occurrences that still strike me as truly passive. I think you may have misunderstood. It's not that all passive imperatives are middle, but that all the ones in ...

Re: Ask your questions here ...

See if the error goes away if you use this URL to access the forum: http://www-test.ibiblio.org/bgreek/forum/ This is happening to me too. I believe it involves a memory setting that limits PHP's use of memory. I don't have shell access to be able to set this myself, I'll open up a ticket and see i...

Re: Luke 6:20 vocative?

It it were truly vocative, Luke 6:20bc would have to be punctuated with an extra comma as if Μακάριοι, οἱ πτωχοί, ὅτι ὑμετέρα ἐστὶν ἡ βασιλεία τοῦ θεοῦ. But this leaves μακάριοι hanging out there with nothing to do. Rather, μακάριοι is straightforwardly the predicate nominative to the subject nomina...

Re: Best lexicons available online?

I also like:

Pollux: Archimedes Project Dictionary Access http://archimedes.fas.harvard.edu/pollux/
This has a nice interface to LSJ and Lewis & Short's Latin Dictionary, plus other language lexica.
