[] Acts 19,6 [] Acts 19,34 EPIGNONTES DE hOTI IOUDAIOS ESTIN FWNH EGENETO MIA EKPANTWN hWS EPI hWRAS DUO KRAZONTWN, MEGALH H ARTEMISEFESIWNThe NET Bible has:19:34 But when they recognized that he was a Jew, theyall shouted in unison, “Great is Artemis” of theEphesians!” for about two hours.Culy/Parsons has:But when they recognized that he was a Jew, one cryarose from all those who were shouting, for about twohours: “Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!”Making note of the Genitive KRAZONTWN, Culy, and Ithink rightly, insists that MIA must modify FWNH,since PANTWN modifies KRAZONTWN. Contra the NET Bib lethen, MIA EK PANTWN must be undone, since PANTWN goeswith KRAZONTWN (not part of some idiomaticexpression).All of which means we have quite a mess with thisverse. And I’m not sure just what this “one voice” hadto say as the others were shouting. The NET Bibletranslation seems smooth, but grammatically is itpossible, and Culy/Parsons translation seems to leavethe “one voice” unattended. Any other suggestedtranslations or support for those given above?=====Eddie MishoePastor__________________________________Do you Yahoo!?Yahoo!

The NET bible attempts to give the meaning in clear and normalEnglish. When one voice comes from a whole crowd, the meaning is that thecrowd shouted in unison or “as with one voice”. (The Latin-derived “unison”is similar to FWNH MIA.)The Culy/Parsons rendering is the special kind of “translation” one uses inGreek textbooks and discussions. The purpose is not to render the meaning inclear and normal English, but to talk about Greek grammar and words usingEnglish words. So, they have made a more literal rendering. If one assumesthat this is normal English, problems arise, because then the reader istrying to make sense out of it from normal English usage. The onevoice/sound is not from one person, but what emanates from the crowd. Theywere all shouting, but they shouted the same thing/sound/message. I canalmost here the chanting of the crowd: MEGALH hH ARTEMIS EFESIWN – MEGALH hHARTEMIS EFESIWN – MEGALH hH ARTEMIS EFESIWN….. for two hours!Iver Larsen
