Re: Today (2/8) is International LXX Day...

However, I've yet to find a good "Reader's" environment for LXX reading online. Has anyone found a solution for this? Everything I've tried so far doesn't handle words which occur in the LXX but not the GNT (i.e. precisely when I would need glosses!). I'd also point to the free resources from Faith...

Re: Deuteronomy 5:30

I think I'm beginning to understand what you are doing. Is this right: You are translating from Hebrew into Greek, then translating that Greek into English. If so: This is an interesting exercise, but I'm not sure why you are doing it. One summer when I was a grad student I translated the book of Ru...

Re: Deuteronomy 5:30

I'm confused about what you are asking or trying to accomplish. Are you wondering why the dual is not used? It had fallen out of use by the Koine period. Sure, you might find it in the Sibylline Oracles and other imitations of epic poetry. But it would have seemed really archaic. So the dual (not "c...

Re: Ask your questions here ...

(2) I want to ask questions about 4 Esdras and other OT Pseudigraphia, but I don't know what section to put it in. The questions are a mix of textual criticism and general philosophizing. The LXX section isn't for text criticism, but I think that it would be on-topic otherwise. Maybe it's better fo...

Isaiah Chapter 66 commentary

What house would you build for me? (66:1-2) 1 The words Οὕτω λέγει Κύριος were added by scribe B himself; A, B (followed by Rahlfs and Ziegler) have Οὕτως λέγει Κύριος. Matthew alludes to the sky and earth being God’s throne and footstool, in Matt 5:34-35, “ἐγὼ δὲ λέγω ὑμῖν μὴ ὀμόσαι ὅλως· μήτε ἐν ...

Isaiah Chapter 66 translation

430. What house would you build for me? (66:1-2) 66.1 Heaven is a throne for me, and the land is a footstool for my feet; what kind of house will you build for me, or what kind of place of my rest? 2 For my hand made all these things, and all these things are together, says Lord, And upon whom will...

Re: Who or what is the referent of αὐτῶν in Mk. 9:48

Maybe it's a quotation from Isaiah 66:24, in which the plural pronoun refers the people who sinned against God. It's not an exact quotation; the pronoun is the same, but the verb tense differs: ὁ γὰρ σκώληξ αὐτῶν οὐ τελευτήσει. Yes, it certainly is a quote from Isaiah 66:24. So I wouldn't recommend...

I always say, "We're not born knowing this stuff!" The only dumb questions are the ones that don't get asked.
