Mt 21:31 Are participles temporally unmarked? Mk 1:35 At John 9:24 the Net Translation (www.bible.org/netbible/index.htm) hasthe following note”ÒGive glory to GodÓ (an idiomatic formula used in placing someone underoath to tell the truth). “–My experience has been that this translation and its notes are usuallywell and carefully done. However, my search of the LXX for DONXON TWiQEWi, renders only Ps. Ps. 67:35 Ps. 68:35 M, Ps 68:34 English. Asimilar search of the UBS 4th ed. yields: Luke 17:18, John 9:24, Acts12:23, Rom 4:20, Rev 11:13. All are about giving glory to God, but none(unless it be granted at John 9:24) are in an oath context.My question: Are others aware of this as an “idiomatic formula used inplacing someone under oath to tell the truth)”? Is it used that way inextra biblical texts of which I am unaware?With their “Promise before God to tell the truth” for DOS DOXAN TWi QEWithis usually careful translation seem to have moved farther towardinterpretation than they normally do and I’m baffled to figure out why.ThanksJMRev.

Give God glory! 1 John 4:13 translation questioned {James}What I’ve been wondering, though, is whether DOUS DOXAN TWi QEWi in Rom.4:20 also has this sense of “telling the truth”. In this case, I wouldunderstand passage as saying that Abraham was empowered in faith as hetold the truth about what God had done for him.Does anyone else have any thoughts as to this possible translation inRom 4:20?{Bill}”Glory” is an enigmatic word in both English and Greek. I tend to see it asan opposite of “despise” or “having a low opinion of.” If I’m correct thatDOXA is related to DOKIA “opinion,” might both Abraham’s unhesitating faithand the surrendering to God’s Truth be examples of giving God “glory” in thesense of exhibiting an “exalted opinion of Him and His power?”The Scriptures show a consistent relationship to our opinion of God and ourbehavior:Proverbs 14:2 He that walketh in his uprightness feareth the LORD: but he that isperverse in his ways despiseth him.You might say “giving glory” is “giving credit” in a profound sense:Romans 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neitherwere thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolishheart was darkened.22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,So, I think your translation is good, as well as your observation.
