Re: Where to find Septuagint manuscript transcriptions ?

I'm in a similar boat, so will add mine question. Has El Texto Antioqueno de la Biblia Griega been digitized, or is there a Lucianic version that has? I am digging into the discourse motivations for translation techniques of kaige features in Reigns. Thanks! Not that I know of. Transcriptions of th...

Re: κατέχω ("repair") in LXX 2 Esdras 13:4-32 (Nehemiah 3)

FWIW, the usual Hebrew root translated as a form of κατέχω is אחז, which has a silent first radical, and the other two radicals appear (in that order) in חָזַק. So I'm thinking we should consider visual and phonetic mistakes on the part of the translator (or copyist). Would you draw that conclusion...

Was there a typo in that citation by chance?

Re: κατέχω ("repair") in LXX 2 Esdras 13:4-32 (Nehemiah 3)

The verb "κατέχω" is used in 2 LXX Esdras 13:4-32 (Nehemiah 3:4-32), presumably, to render the Hebrew “חָזַק” (chazaq) - strength. ... Given that description, it's hard to wrap my head around how the translator got "κατέχω" from “חָזַק” (chazaq). ... Can anyone shed any light on this? FWIW, the usu...

Re: Who was loathed in Exodus 1:12?

Exactly; thanks, Barry.
Phillip, if you want to retain the passive-looking form, you can think of βδελύσσομαι as "I am disgusted". Εβδελύσσοντο would correspond to "the Egyptians were disgusted by the sons of Israel."

Re: Who was loathed in Exodus 1:12?

Εβδελύσσοντο is middle/passive. And I understand the ἀπὸ + genitive construction can be interpreted as cause (because of) or agency (by) (Wallace, GGBB, 368). The NETS translation translates it as follows: "and the Egyptians were disgusted with the sons of Israel." This would, I'm guessing, be simi...

Re: Translating a Second Temple Aramaic text into Greek

For those interested, a transcription of the Aramaic of Enoch from among the Dead Sea Scrolls manuscripts is available on Google books (at least for a few of the manuscripts anyway): I was using the transcription from Pseudepigrapha.org (of which I am co-director). At https://pseudepigrapha.org/doc...

Guess the only thing missing from this is a translation for the Aramaic כויתא/burn.
To keep with the verb κατακαίω, would the participle καιομένην work?
καὶ ὑμεῖς σκιάν καὶ ἀπόκρυφα ἐρωτᾶτε ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὴν καιομένην γῆν.
Perfect! Thanks.
