Greek like Violin: Day 12

Here is the breakdown for today’s practice session:


0915-1000 – Genesis 1:20–2:14 (Hebrew/LXX Greek)

1005-1110 – 1 Corinthians 7–9 (Greek)


Moving faster through Genesis, mostly due to repetition in the vocabulary. Tried to be alert to possible indicators pointing to 2 different creation accounts (a view espoused by various theologians). Came up with some ideas that would not have occurred simply reading the English. The differences between the Hebrew and LXX were interesting, especially in the handling of the divine name, יהוה.
