[] 1 Timothy 2:4-5 [] 1 Timothy 2:4-5 I would say that whoever wishes to understand ὅς hOS as having a causal meaning needs to provide some proof that such can indeed be the case — which I don’t think is possible.  Note the sentence without the verse number to muck things up.τοῦτο καλὸν καὶ ἀπόδεκτον ἐνώπιον τοῦ σωτῆρος ἡμῶν θεοῦ, ὃς πάντος ἀνθρώπους …TOUTO KALON KAI APODEKTON ENWPION TOU SWTHROS hHMWN QEOU, hOS PANTOS ANQRWPOUS …Unless your unnamed commentator can find some proof of the use of ὅς hOS in a causative sense (which I seriously doubt he will be able) and can then further show that the use here fits his scheme, it appears that the usage here is the common, ordinary, everyday, meat-and-potatos relative which ties the following clause back to its antecedent.As regards whether the position of πάντος ἀνθρώπους PANTOS ANQRWPOUS is emphatic, I would say that may be the case, but discourse linguistics is not my field.  I think Steve Runge would be better able to answer that.  I tried finding some answer in his book, but it would appear that he doesn’t feel that it is such an easy question to answer so that it requires some considerable discussion.  He speaks of the normal information flow and old information / new information which whole matter would take a bit more time to wade through than I care to spend to answer one question so that it is better for him to respond personally.  I would note, however that, going back to the beginning of the chapter, the discussion was concerning praying for all menΠαρακαλῶ οὖν πρῶτον πάντων ποιεῖσθαι δεήσεις προσευχὰς ἐντεύξεις εὐχαριστίας ** ὑπὲρ πάντων ἀνθρώπων ** PARAKALW OUN PRWTON PANTWN POIEISQAI DEHSIS PROSEUXAS ENTEUCEIS EUXARISTIAS ** hUPER PANTWN ANQRWPWN ** Thus, while it may be the case that there is some prominence in its position, I somewhat doubt that since it is not any new information and simply resumes the discussion of prayer for all men on the basis of (hmm–am I introducing a causal idea ?) the fact that God wishes all men to be saved.  Whatever Steve says regarding this, listen to him since that’s his specialty.georgegfsomsel … search for truth, hear truth, learn truth, love truth, speak the truth, hold the truth, defend the truth till death.- Jan Hus_________ ________________________________From: Beata Urbanek <beata.urbanek at op.pl>To: Beata Urbanek <beata.urbanek at op.pl>; BG < at lists.ibiblio.org>Sent: Sat, March 19, 2011 7:19:56 AMSubject: Re: [] 1 Timothy 2:4-5Plus another question:)One of the commentators says that hOS has a causal meaning: “because He wants all people to be saved”.

[] 1 Timothy 2:4-5 [] 1 Timothy 2:4-5 Let me attempt to be a bit more plain regarding the matter of ὅς hOS in this passage and the matter of causality.  I would say that there is a certain causality expressed, but it DOES NOT LIE IN THE RELATIVE.  The causality lies rather in the manner in which the author has structured the argument.  He could have said Παρακαλῶ οὖν πρῶτον πάντων ποιεῖσθαι δεήσεις … ὑπὲρ πάντων ἀνθρώπων.

I’ve said this before — and if I keeprepeating myself, it may turn out to be ad nauseam –: ancient writers, no lessthan modern writers, tend to express themselves more tersely than they areactually thinking; a writer that wanted to be unambiguous could and still cantake the trouble to express him/herself so as not to be misunderstood, buttaking such pains is generally too much of a pain to take, and so we commonlydon’t think twice about making ourselves as clear as perhaps we ought.Carl> ________________________________> From: Beata Urbanek <beata.urbanek at op.pl>> To: Beata Urbanek <beata.urbanek at op.pl>; BG < at lists.ibiblio.org>> Sent: Sat, March 19, 2011 7:19:56 AM> Subject: Re: [] 1 Timothy 2:4-5> > Plus another question:)> > One of the commentators says that hOS has a causal meaning: “because He wants > all people to be saved”.

Relative Clauses of Cause take the indicative (negative οὐ). ὅς is more common than ὅστις. θαυμαστὸν ποιεῖς, δ̀ς ( = ὅτι σὺ) ““ἡμῖν . . . οὐδὲν δίδως” you do a strange thing in giving us nothing” X. M. 2.7.13, Λοξίᾳ δὲ μέμφομαι, ὅστις μ᾽ ἐπά_ρα_ς ἔργον ἀνοσιώτατον τοῖς μὲν λόγοις ηὔφρα_νε κτλ. I blame Loxias, who after inciting me to a deed most unhallowed, cheered me with words, etc. E. Or. 285. So when the relative is a dependent exclamation (οἷος ῀ ὅτι τοιοῦτος, etc., 2687). a. γε is often added to ὅς or ὅστις. b. μή is used when there is also an idea of characteristic (of such a sort) or condition (perhaps to avoid a harsher form of statement). Cp. 2705 g. But I think we are looking at this all wrong. I don’t think one needs a grammar or grammatical category or even another example to show that there is causal force here. As you said in your post after this one, maybe the causal force lies in the nature of discourse, any discourse, and not in the relative pronoun itself, but it is clearly there. Beata wrote about ὅς<I cannot find such meaning of this pronoun.>Hi Beata,This is also wrong. Words don’t have meanings. Meanings use words. You don’t “find” the meaning of a Greek word by looking in a dictionary or grammar. You learn to read Greek and the meaning is there. This is my own ultra nauseam, I know.

Relative Clauses of Cause take the indicative (negative οὐ). ὅς is more common than ὅστις. θαυμαστὸνποιεῖς, δ̀ς( = ὅτι σὺ) ““ἡμῖν . . . οὐδὲν δίδως” you do a strange thing in giving us nothing” X.

So when the relative is a dependent exclamation (οἷος ῀ ὅτι τοιοῦτος, etc., 2687). a. γε is often added to ὅς or ὅστις. b. μή is used when there is also an idea of characteristic (of such a sort) or condition (perhaps to avoid a harsher form of statement). Cp. 2705 g. But I think we are looking at this all wrong.  I don’t think one needs a grammar or grammatical category or even another example to show that there is causal force here.  As you said in your post after this one, maybe the causal force lies in the nature of discourse, any discourse, and not in the relative pronoun itself, but it is clearly there.

I’ve said this before — and if I keeprepeating myself, it may turn out to be ad nauseam –: ancient writers, no lessthan modern writers, tend to express themselves more tersely than they areactually thinking; a writer that wanted to be unambiguous could and still cantake the trouble to express him/herself so as not to be misunderstood, buttaking such pains is generally too much of a pain to take, and so we commonlydon’t think twice about making ourselves as clear as perhaps we ought.Carl> ________________________________> From: Beata Urbanek <beata.urbanek at op.pl>> To: Beata Urbanek <beata.urbanek at op.pl>; BG < at lists.ibiblio.org>> Sent: Sat, March 19, 2011 7:19:56 AM> Subject: Re: [] 1 Timothy 2:4-5> > Plus another question:)> > One of the commentators says that hOS has a causal meaning: “because He > wants> all people to be saved”.

[] NT and Modern Greek [] 1 Timothy 2:4 Webb, My point was that the words PANTES ANQRWPOUS standing alone could be legitimately translated “all kinds of people” regardless of Paul’s intended meaning in 1 Tim. 2:4, and verse 1 may be a good example according to ATR. As you know, Paul progresses from the general to the specific contextually. I might just throw in Acts 10:12 as a better example.

Believers of all stripes and persuasions and unbelievers as well are welcome to participate in this forum: arguments regarding Biblical Greek texts are to be grounded upon morphological, syntactical, lexicological, etc. principles — not on the faith-commitment or lack of it of the individual proposing or defending an argument. Please let’s avoid reference to any sort of where any sectarian lines lie regarding the interpretation of any text; rather let’s keep the focus on the text itself and what it can reasonably be shown to mean.On Nov 4, 2006, at 10:45 AM, Matt wrote:>> MB>> I have a question in relation to legitimate translations of >> ‘pantas’ in 1>> 1>> Timothy 2:4.>> >> Is there any justification for translating this as ‘all kinds of’ ?> > MB> Thank you all for the responses to my inquiry.

QELW In an article I read an interpretation that there is a distinction between QELW and BOULOMAI here. So, the text says that it’s God’s wish, that He simply wants all the people to have all they need to be saved. In other words that it’s a wish off his heart and not a decision of his will. Can we say that on tha base of the meaning of the verbs? Thayer says: “As respects the distinction between βούλομαι and θέλω, the former seems to designate the will which follows deliberation, the latter the will which proceeds from inclination”. There is also a reverse of this distinction. BDAG has a few meanings of QELW: a. to have a desire for something, wish to have, desire, want b. to have someth. in mind for oneself, of purpose, resolve, will, wish, want, be ready BDAG doesn’t refer to 1 Tim 2:4. At BOULOMAI BDAG cites BDF – there is no difference in meaning between the verbs. What do you think? 2. GAR Is GAR here explicative (as BDAG suggests) or it gives the reason? This is the more important question to me. What is the connection between the verses 4 and 5?

I haven’t done a study on this — perhaps somebody has, but I don’t know of it — but my sense is that earlier Greek tended to use QELW or EQELW of consent or willingness to do something or for something to be done, while BOULOMAI was used rather for positive intent to do something or have something done. I note that LSJ says, ” … to be willing (of consent rather than desire, v. βούλομαι 1), but also generally, wish … ” I’m inclined to think that the two verbs are more or less synonymous and that QELW is the more common in everyday colloquial discourse. I note that QELW is found 208x in the GNT, 153x in the LXX, while BOULOMAI is found 37 times in the GNT, 121 times in the LXX. It might be worth a further investigation, but I don’t see much basis to differentiate the sense of the two verbs very sharply.Carl W.

But the complement of QELW is nothing more than LEXAI — “make a statement.”It seems to me that Euripides’ usage of LEXAI QELW here does not differsignificantly from the Pauline expression, OU QELW hUMAS AGNOEIN,ADELFOI (Rom. 1:13,. 11:25 1Cor. 10:1, 12:1 2Cor. 1:8, 1Th. 4:13)Carl W.

But the complement of QELW is nothing more than LEXAI — “make a statement.”It seems to me that Euripides’ usage of LEXAI QELW here does not differsignificantly from the Pauline expression, OU QELW hUMAS AGNOEIN,ADELFOI (Rom. 1:13,. 11:25 1Cor. 10:1, 12:1 2Cor. 1:8, 1Th. 4:13)Carl W.

[] 1 Timothy 2:4-5 [] 1 Timothy 2:4-5 After having looked at all the BOULOMAIs in the NT, I get the impression that itusually refers to the following scenario: I have thought about the situation, Ihave come to a decision or made a plan, and therefore: this is what I want youto do or this is what I want should happen.If more than one person is involved, the decision would be a result of thatconsultation, but in most cases the person consults within him- or herself.In 2 Pet 3:9 we read: μὴ βουλόμενός τινας ἀπολέσθαι ἀλλὰ πάντας εἰς μετάνοιανχωρῆσαιMH BOULOMENOS TINAS APOLESQAI ALLA PANTAS EIS METANOIAN CWRHSAI(God) is not planning (does not want) for anyone to be destroyed but for all tomake room for repentance.In 1 Tim 2:4 God would wish (QELEI) for all people to be saved and come to fullyknow the truth.But he also knows that this will not happen, even though he has put everythingin place for it to happen as v. 5 explains: He has sent Jesus Christ as themediator, but there is only one God. If people will not believe and acknowledgethis truth, they will not be saved.Although there is considerable overlap between the words, I do believe that somedistinction is present. It is akin to, but not quite the same as, the differencebetween English “want” and “wish”.—– Original Message —– From: “Shirley Rollinson” <rollinsondr at yahoo.com>To: <beata.urbanek at op.pl>Cc: < at lists.ibiblio.org>Sent: 9. marts 2011 02:14Subject: Re: [] 1 Timothy 2:4-5Dear Beata,Could it be that THELW qelw relates to THELHMA qelhma – what an individualwishes or wantsand that BOULOMAI boulomai relates to BOULH boulh – what a council decidestogether?thank youShirley Rollinson+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++> 9.

My questions concerns two words. 1. QELW In an article I read an interpretation that there is a distinction between QELW and BOULOMAI here. So, the text says that it’s God’s wish, that He simply wants all the people to have all they need to be saved. In other words that it’s a wish off his heart and not a decision of his will. Can we say that on tha base of the meaning of the verbs? Thayer says: “As respects the distinction between βούλομαι and θέλω, the former seems to designate the will which follows deliberation, the latter the will which proceeds from inclination”. There is also a reverse of this distinction. BDAG has a few meanings of QELW: a. to have a desire for something, wish to have, desire, want b. to have someth. in mind for oneself, of purpose, resolve, will, wish, want, be ready BDAG doesn’t refer to 1 Tim 2:4. At BOULOMAI BDAG cites BDF – there is no difference in meaning between the verbs.

What do you think?

2. GAR Is GAR here explicative (as BDAG suggests) or it gives the reason? This is the more important question to me. What is the connection between the verses 4 and 5?
