Search Terms

Okay, so really only search term, there’s only one highlight this time around, but it’s a great one:

genitive of destination in the greek?

I think the answer to that question is “No.”

  1. αμην αμην λεγω σοι, βλεπε την προφητειαν του Ιερεμιου 21:8—“την οδον της ζωης και την οδον του θανατου.” δηλον!

  2. σημαντικὸν δηλαδή. On the other hand, there’s a partitive usage with verbs of “aiming” that I used to like to call “genitive of the target.” Verbs meaning “obtain,” “hit upon,” “succeed at” take this, such as τυγχάνω, κυρέω, ἐφίεμαι, ἐπιθυμέω will take this sort of genitive as an object. See Smyth under “partitive genitive with verbs” (§§1348-9), where he speaks of a “genitive of the end obtained” and a “genitive of the goal.”
