Luqa 12......Greek????

Mar-26-2001 at 12:07 PM (UTC+3 Nineveh, Assyria)

Shlama Akhi Iakov,

In verse 11, Maran Eshoa says:

"La" - not
"Taspun" - do be anxious about
"Aykanna" - how
"Tapqun" - should depart
"Rukha" - breath
"Aw" - or
"Mana" - what
"Tamrun" - you should say

There are 3 really amazing things about his verse:

(1) The Greek translators did not know what to do with the phrase "how your breath should depart", since this is an Aramaic idiom which means "how to compose your speech" (ie, "speak properly")

The Greeks translated this phrase "how (Pos) or what (Tis) you are to speak", which does not make sense in the context, since it is preceded by an "or"....the way the Greek version reads is:

"do not be anxious (Merimnao) about how or what you should say in your defense"

Whereas the Aramaic reads:

"do not be anxious about how to compose your speech or what you should say"

In other words, don't worry about the way you speak or the content of that speech.

(2) There is a triple-wordplay in this verse: "Taspun", "Tapqun" and "Tamrun".

(3) An allusion to the dual-meaning of the word "Rukha".....spirit and breath, and how Maran Eshoa plays on this duality, is noticed in the very next verse (verse 12)

"For the Holy Spirit (Rukha d'Qudsha) will teach you what to say"

In other words......don't worry about your rukha "breath", the Rukha d'Qudsha (the Holy Spirit) will teach you.

In the Greek, the allusion to "Breath" (verse 11) and "Spirit" (verse 12) is simply.....missing.

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb

Aramaic \ar-é-'máik\ n (1998)   1:  a Semitic language which became the lingua franca of the Middle East during the ancient Assyrian empire.   2:  has been referred to as Neo-Aramaic, Neo-Syriac, Classical Syriac, Syriac, Suryoyo, Swadaya and Turoyo.
