Translation Koine

Hello I am just coming across a few sentences in my graded reader from the 1950s and I have had some trouble translating these two sentences. I didn't write down the preceding and following sentences for context, maybe you can still help me figure it out. Koine.

1. ὁ πιστεύων ἐν ἐμοί, οὗτος ἀδελφός μου και μήτηρ ἐστιν. How can the one believing in Him be His brother and she is somebody's (who) mother? This ...

χξϚ 666

I was just studying the difference between 666, the number of the beast, in the Textus Receptus and in the UBS IV. The T.R. says the number is χξϚ (600, 60, 6). The UBS IV says the number is ἑξακόσιοι ἑξήκοντα ἕξ. Does the numbering in the UBS affect the way the beasts number can be calculated? How does this work, the number of his name adds up somehow to 666? So what combination of ...

adsuetus: how many syllables?

Context: I've been working on scanning, having scanned about 350 lines over the past month. I'm getting about three-fourths of them right, using this web site as a criterion of correctness:


I keep having trouble with the letter "u": vowel or consonant?

Here is a dictionary entry, with a single macron over the "e": adsuētus. [ In case the macron doesn't come through for you, I'll uppercase the ...

I understand that I need to provide an introduction to post on this board.

I was meditating on James White's slavish adherence to Granville Sharpe's "rule" in 2P2:1 to "prove" the deity of Christ. Having lived long enough along with a Masters in TESOL (some familiarity with human language), I STRONGLY expected this was more of debate strategy rather than genuine linguistic relevance. I have been attempting to find non-evangelical sources (who do not have ...

salvetes omnes!

Hello, my name is Paul. I'm 18 (soon 19) and from Indiana.

I've had no formal education trying to learn Latin, but I have been interested in it for a while and only recently trying to learn it, and I just found this forum today!

After reading Julius Caesar in High School for an English class, I was interested in Ancient Rome, and then by extent, Latin. I also have a hobby of ...

No subject? Koine

I just saw this phrase in one of my textbooks. Is it correct? It is one of the only times I have seen a construction without a subject expressed or implied within a noun, participle, adjective or verb. I suppose God here is implied, but the case doesn't match.

θεὸν τὸν γενν́ησαντά σε.
God, the one who bore you.

Strabo 17.1.27 genetive

νυνὶ μὲν οὖν ἐστι πανέρημος ἡ πόλις, τὸ ἱερὸν ἔχουσα τῷ Αἰγυπτίῳ τρόπῳ κατεσκευασμένον ἀρχαῖον, ἔχον πολλὰ τεκμήρια τῆς Καμβύσου μανίας καὶ ἱεροσυλίας, ὃς τὰ μὲν πυρὶ τὰ δὲ σιδήρῳ διελωβᾶτο τῶν ἱερῶν, ἀκρωτηριάζων καὶ περικαίων, καθάπερ καὶ τοὺς ὀβελίσκους, ὧν δύο καὶ εἰς Ῥώμην ἐκομίσθησαν οἱ μὴ κεκακωμένοι τελέως, ἄλλοι δ᾽ εἰσὶ κἀκεῖ καὶ ἐν Θήβαις, τῇ νῦν Διοσπόλει, οἱ μὲν ἑστῶτες ἀκμὴν πυρίβρωτοι οἱ δὲ καὶ κείμενοι.

why genitive?

1) In Orberg's LLPSI Cap XLIV (simplified Livy) Orberg is describing the division of Roman men into Centurias.

Having described the prima classis he goes on to describe the secunda as follows:

Additae huic classi duae fabrum centuriae, quae sine armis stipendia facerent.

He's saying that added to this first class was this second class but why is it all in genitive case? Aren't they the object of the sentence?

--- unless duae is fem ...
