2nd Corinthians 6:13 - Larry Kelsey - 04-11-2005

Shlama Akhay,

I suppose that the average Greek primacist would accuse me of being near-sighted and extremely biased regarding this comparison. The Greek text kinda leaves ya hangin' from where I'm sittin' !! <!-- s:eh: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/eh.gif" alt=":eh:" title="Eh" /><!-- s:eh: -->

Well, anyway, here it is....comparing Murdock's translation from Aramaic to the Analytical-Literal Translation from Greek regarding 2nd Corinthians 6:13.....

Now [in] the same exchange [fig., in return for the same] (as to children I say [it]), you* also be opened wide [fig., have the same affections for us]! (ALT)

I speak as to [my] children, Pay me the debt which ye owe, and expand your love towards me. (Murdock)

Also notice the correspondence between the lexeme of word #6497- khobla and the lexeme of #6112 - khoba !!
