Hello,
I'm a newbie on the board.

Working on 1 Corinthians 11:22. The USB begins with a particle defined as "not". Did the translators supply "What" in the NASB to flesh out the entire argument of that section?

Thanks in advance

1 Corinthians 11:22 - what?

Welcome, Brady!

One quick administrative note:
Moderator's Note: On B-Greek, user names must be sufficient to identify you. See http://www.ibiblio.org/bgreek/forum/vie ... ?f=38&t=90. Follow the instructions so we can change your username and you can continue to post. I will delete this note after you have done so. (In your case, I would simply add your first name to your username if that's OK.)
Now back to the subject ...

On B-Greek, we ask people to cite the Greek - it takes a little time to learn how we do things here, so let me supply that:
1 Cor 11:22 wrote:μὴ γὰρ οἰκίας οὐκ ἔχετε εἰς τὸ ἐσθίειν καὶ πίνειν; ἢ τῆς ἐκκλησίας τοῦ θεοῦ καταφρονεῖτε, καὶ καταισχύνετε τοὺς μὴ ἔχοντας; τί εἴπω ὑμῖν; ἐπαινέσω ὑμᾶς; ἐν τούτῳ οὐκ ἐπαινῶ.
Here's the NASB:
NASB wrote:What! Do you not have houses in which to eat and drink? Or do you despise the church of God and shame those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you? In this I will not praise you.
I think the "What!" is added to make it clearly very emphatic, conveying a sense of astonishment. Here's Meyer:
Meyer wrote:μὴ γὰρ οἰκίας κ.τ.λ[1840]] γάρ has inferential force; see on Matthew 27:23; John 9:30; Acts 19:35; and Winer, p. 416 [E. T. 559]; Kühner, a[1841] Xen. Mem. i. 3. 10 : you surely are not without houses? The sense of astonishment (Hartung, Partikell. I. p. 478) is conveyed by the question, not by the γάρ.
