A question regarding the shout of the innumerable multitude:
H SOTERIA TWi QEWi HMWN TWi KAQHMENWi EPI TWi QRONWi KAI TWi ARNIWi.
The datives TWi QEWi HMWN ... TWi ARNIWi are generally rendered as "to
our God ... to the Lamb." As I was reading today, it occurred to me
that they could be instrumental datives, and be rendered "by our God ...
by the Lamb." The NIV has "belongs to our God ...", and Charles B.
Williams has "is due to our God ...", which latter has an instrumental
flavor to it.
What do the list members think of the instrumental possibility?
Thanks in advance for your views.
