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

Might this be understood as a double accusative with με as the object complement of θέλετε and Τί … ποιήσω ὑμῖν as a clause functioning as the accusative complement? I'm not too familiar with a double accusative construction with θέλω. How would it work? One guess is: "Do you want me [to be] what I...

Vasile Stancu wrote:How about με just emphasizing something?
I could see such an emphasis if the text had ἐγώ instead of με. But I can't see your point with με. Attested examples of the construction you have in mind would be very helpful.

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

Thanks for your comments, indicating that the με makes little, if any, syntactic sense here. I would argue that it makes little, if any, prosodic sense here too. I've carefully reading David Goldstein's 2010 Berkeley dissertation on the placement of clausal clitics in 5th cen Greek and comparing the...

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...
