TAPEINWQHTE ENWPION TOU KURIOU KAI UYWSEI hUMAS.
Why is this almost always translated 'Humble yourselves before the Lord...' rather than 'Be humbled before the Lord...', which makes equally good sense. If James meant 'Humble yourselves...', would he not have used the middle form?
I note that Young's Literal Translation has 'Be made low before the Lord...'.
Thanks for your help,
