Several translations seem to translate κατά "just as", giving a nice parallelism:1 Peter 1:14-16 wrote:14 ὡς τέκνα ὑπακοῆς, μὴ συσχηματιζόμενοι ταῖς πρότερον ἐν τῇ ἀγνοίᾳ ὑμῶν ἐπιθυμίαις, 15 ἀλλὰ κατὰ τὸν καλέσαντα ὑμᾶς ἅγιον καὶ αὐτοὶ ἅγιοι ἐν πάσῃ ἀναστροφῇ γενήθητε, 16 διότι γέγραπται Ἅγιοι ἔσεσθε, ὅτι ἐγὼ ἅγιος.
ἀλλὰ κατὰ τὸν καλέσαντα ὑμᾶς ἅγιον
καὶ αὐτοὶ ἅγιοι ἐν πάσῃ ἀναστροφῇ γενήθητε
Using the symbols + = adjunct, s = subject, pc = predicative compliment, v = verb, that looks like this:
+ ἐν πάσῃ ἀναστροφῇ
Just as the one who called you is holy, be you(pl) holy in all of your behavior. But can κατά really bend that way? Can you think of similar constructions where it is used like this? Or is there another justification for this kind of translation?
Or should this be interpreted like this, where v.part means participle, o = object, and o2= second object:
Or is this just adjectival, κατὰ τὸν καλέσαντα ὑμᾶς ἅγιον = "the Holy One who called you"?
