Hebrews 9:6, 12:6 and the usage of DE Hebrews 9:6, 12:6 and the usage of DE Dear all,I have been looking at 1 Corinthians 11.In verses 14-15, the KJV reads, “Doth not even nature itself teach you,that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? But if a woman havelong hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering”while the Greek reads, “H OUDE AUTH hH FUSIS DIDASKEI hUMAS, hOTI ANHR MENEAN KOMA, ATIMIA AUTO ESTI? GUNH DE EAN KOMA, DOXA AUTH ESTIN? hOTI hHKOMH ANTI PERIBAIOU DEDOTI AUTH;”Which would be translated as, “Does not even nature itself teach you that,if a man have long hair, it is a shame to him? But if a woman has longhair, is it a glory to her? For her hair is given to her for a covering.”Some say it could even be translated, “Even nature itself does not teachyou, that, if a man has long hair, it is a shame to him, etc.”What is the proper translation? And, if the KJV translators were correcthere, in which way does nature teach us that it is a shame for a man tohave long hair? And could “ANHR” and “GUNH” be translated as “husband” and”wife”?Many Thanks,David Fox

test, please ignore Ro. 8:26 1 Corinthians 11:14 – OUDEI hH FUSIS AUTH DIDASKEI hUMAS hOTI ANHR MEN EANKOMAi ATIMIA AUTWi ESTIN 11:15 – GUNH DE EAN KOMAi DOXA AUTHi ESTIN hOTI hHKOMH ANTI PERIBOLAIOU DEDOTAI [AUTHi]I echo David’s original question:>> in which way does nature teach us that it is a shame for a man to>> have long hair?Clay, your comments on Paul’s reference to the “created order and hH FUSIS”in Romans 1:26 are not that helpful here. I doubt that Paul is saying to theCorinthians that “the order of things established in creation” means longhair is a shameful thing on men. I agree with your assessment that the”whole question hangs on Paul’s use of hH FUSIS,” and that it is “acomplicated topic.” I also agree that the context of Romans 1 warrants aclose connection of FUSIS to the created order. But I would think itsomewhat of an eisegetical assumption to read that understanding into thisCorinthian passage.The typical translation of hH FUSIS AUTH is “nature itself”. This, however,seems unlikely to be what Paul had in mind. If something like “that which isnatural” (in a physical sense) is the intended meaning, then the idea oflong hair being a shame for a man does not square with the fact that lettingnature take its course means a man’s hair will grow long. Is there any(lexical) justification for understanding FUSIS here as “that which isnatural (in a cultural sense)”?Or, what about the rendering, “the appearance of things”? The abridgedLiddell-Scott lists an example of FUSIS in a line from Pindar’s Odes(specifically line 5 of Nemean Ode 6) as referring to “outward form.” Theline reads, ALLA TI PROSFEROMEN EMPAN H MEGAN NOON HTOI FUSIN AQANATOIS(“Nevertheless, we bear some resemblance either in greatness of mind or in*outward form* [FUSIN] to the immortals.”). Other examples of FUSISreferring to physical appearance, the “bodily nature”, are cited in L-S.Would such a rendering in 1 Corinthians 11:14 be stretching things a bit toomuch, or is there some merit to this?Also, the translation of ANTI in verse 15 is typically (KJV, ASV, RSV, NASB,etc.) rendered “for.” Is there a reason for this that I’m missing? I wouldthink that a more acceptable gloss would be “instead of,” which tracks withdefinitions given in lexicons from Thayer to BAGD to L-S. Also, both Darbyand Young render it so in their translations (“in lieu of” and “instead of”,respectively).Larry G.

But isn’t there a meaning of FUSIS which applies to an establishedpattern of behaviour or custom? That would make more sense, given the factthat in Paul’s day short hair was de rigeur for men.> Is there any (lexical) justification for understanding FUSIS here as “thatwhich is natural (in a cultural sense)”?> I was pretty sure there was.
