Aquila on Genesis 1:11

Postby Mebaqqer » Thu Sep 09, 2010 11:42 pm


Just a quick question on Aquila's translation of Genesis 1:11. The text reads ξύλον κάρπιμον ποιοῦν καρπὸν σπερματίζον εἰς τ̀ο γένος αὐτῶν which I have translated as "fruit trees producing fruit which seeds [lit. seeding] with respect to their genus." Does this sound correct? Any ideas on translating it better?

I think this belongs in the Koine section.
