Re: Ps 29 (30) v6

According to TLG, the Septuagint has the earliest attested instances of τὸ ἑσπέρας. In searching this up, I discovered this gem from PTOLEMAEUS, De differentia vocabulorum (= Περὶ διαφορᾶς λέξεων) [Sp.] (e codd. Ottobon. gr. 43 + Vat. gr. 197). {1643.003} page 393. τὸ ἑσπέρας τοῦ ὀψὲ διαφέρει· ἑσπέρ...

Re: Ps 29 (30) v6

In Ps 29 (30) v6, what is the force of the neuter article? τὸ ἑσπέρας αὐλισθήσεται κλαυθμὸς Is it because ἑσπέρας by itself (or with τῆς) would be ambiguous? Good question. I don't have a good answer. I'm guessing some noun is elided, but a plausible candidate is not coming to mind right now. Murao...

So the answer is both? ;-)
Well, a bit of both. I certainly don't give them all of Wallace's categories up front.

Re: Teaching the Genitive

Do you give a basic meaning of possession or intrinsic relationship and hope the student infers the full usage in their reading, or do you go the full Wallace and give the students a list of 30+ possible meanings to audition? I give a basic meaning of nominal qualification using "-type" a...

Re: The meaning of Hebrews 4:15b

Then I have no idea why you declared that the discussion of the meaning of πειρᾶζω has ended. Jeffrey Jeffrey, I think Eeli was not declaring that the discussion the meaning of πειρᾶζω has ended, but was reporting the error message received when trying to follow the link you provided ( https://www....

Re: Transcription and Translation of Old Greek Isaiah in Codex Marchalianus

Few quick questions: on Academia it's said this is the "Greek Text and Translation" of Marchalianus, but here you've referred to it as a "Transcription". Checking the images you handily link to, I can see it's not the sort of transcription I was anticipating - nomina sacra are w...

Re: Infinitive usage in Against Apion 1.1

1) what is the syntactical usage of the infinitive phrase: τεκμήριόν τε ποιουμένους τοῦ νεώτερον εἶναι τὸ γένος ἡμῶν ? The way I am interpreting this phrase as (text rearranged for clarity) : ποιουμένους τεκμήριόν "while they make it out to be a sure sign" [that] τὸ γένος ἡμῶν τοῦ ... εἶν...

Re: Septuagint Translation Choices: Love

What references are best for discussion of Septuagint translation choices for words related to love (חֶסֶד, אהב, etc), focusing on the relationships between Greek and Hebrew meanings? I know Hatch and Redpath, and I know some Hebrew lexicons make reference to Greek words that are used to translate ...
