DOMATA in Mal 1:3 1 Thess 5:10 Thank you very much to those who responded to my query on 1 Tim 2:7. Therewas no clear preference for option 1 or 2, and some wanted to sit on thefence saying both. But I am happy that there were several who supportedoption 2 which is my preference. I am not sure there is something which canproperly be termed “dative of content” and I could not find “content” as asense listed in BAGD for the preposition EN. The closest I could find was”in reference to”.Now I have another query. These are relevant for the translation I amworking on.1 Thess 5:10 sayshINA EITE GRHGORWMEN EITE KAQEUDWMEN hAMA SUN AUTWi ZHSWMEN.My question is about the sense of the two verbs. Let me suggestalternatives:Does GRHGOREW here mean1) be literally awake2) be watchful, alert, spiritually awake3) be physically aliveDoes KAQEUDW here mean1) be literally asleep2) be dull, spiritually asleep3) be physically deadI could look the words up in the dictionary, which I have. But I havereasons to be suspicious of the dictionaries for this particular instance,because they suggest a sense for these two words in this particular contextthat is different from the senses attested in all other occurrences of thesame words in the GNT. It is implied in the context of 1 Thess 5:10 that thetwo verbs refers to the time/event of the parousia.Your preference? (Preferably with lexical and contextual reasons.)Thanks,Iver Larsen

In v. 6 the pair KAQEUD*/GRHGOR* are used to indicate those whom he classifies as children of darkness/children of light. He appears to have changed the significance of the words here. Putting aside any theological issue, it would be inconceiveable to speak of being “children of light” and therefore “awake” (by which I would understand “spiritually alive”) and yet be able to speak of the possibility of being either awake or asleep.gfsomsel————– next part ————–An HTML attachment was scrubbed…URL: http://lists.ibiblio.org/pipermail//attachments/20020129/7188f23b/attachment.html

Does thishave any impact on 1 Thess 5:10? Probably not. However, it is a bit oflexical data you may not have encountered in the standard lexicons.Also, note that John Nelson Darby* goes with option #3. And of course Darbyis right, isn’t he?– Clayton Stirling BartholomewThree Tree PointP.O. Box 255 Seahurst WA 98062*pages 107-8, Darby, John Nelson Synopsis of the Books of the Bible: Vol 5:Colossians – RevelationLondon: G Morrish Cloth. 568 pages. Date ??? late19th century. Off Topic Observation on Darby:Just picked up my copy of Darby last night. Another curio. Gotta break thishabit of buying curio books just because the are somewhat rare. Actually, Iknow a pastor in Oregon somewhere who collects old dispensationalists and Iam going to send him the book if I can locate him.

1 Thess 5:10 Bad Grammar ? and John 15:26, 16:7-8, 13-14 Dear Iver,GRHGOREW is used 5:6, 10 to be “watchful, alert, spiritually awake.” KAQEUDW in 5:6, 7 & 10 isused of being “dull, spiritually asleep” which is in contrast to GRHGOREW. This is especiallytrue of verse 10 where EITE…EITE refers to both, implying that they will be with the Lord.This is interesting when 4:13-15 uses KOIMAOMAI for those believers who bodies have diedphysically, but are spiritually with the Lord. I do not know if one can make too much of adifference between KAQEUDW and KOIMAOMAI, but the context seems to indicate that there is adistinction being made, if only for this context.En Xpistw,Rev.
