Septuagint The Lord is My Shepherd

[face=SPIonic] Ku/rioj poimai/nei me, kai\ ou)de/n me u(sterh/sei [/face]

If I'm reading sedction IV of the LSJ entry correctly (http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/cgi-bin/pt ... D%23109734), why isn't this[face=SPIonic] ou)de/n u(sterh/sw [/face] ?

I can't check the right resources just now, but I think it may be a somewhat irregular verb. Check out Mark 10:21, where the same form is used for present active indicative second person singular, where you would expect an [face=spionic]eij[/face] ending.

[face=SPIonic] [21] o( de\ )Ihsou=j e)mble/yaj au)tw=| h)ga/phsen au)to\n kai\ ei)=pen au)tw=| (/En se u(sterei=: [/face]

Then the LSJ is misleading. By these two references it seems that the subject is the thing lacked and the object is the person lacking it.

I suspect Bingley is right

compare the French use of "manquer"

[face=SPIonic]u(stere/w[/face] : of persons, 'lack'; of things, [face=SPIonic]u(.tina/ [/face] 'be deficient/lacking' to one

Ref: A Grammatical Analysis of the Greek New Testament, Zerwick and Grosvenor, 1974
