To: Maurice A. O'Sullivan,

In one message you wrote:

<< Brenton's translation supplies the verb "I live", so that it reads: "I 
live in a hard day ..." >>

And in another, you wrote:

<< Rahlfs has the iota subscript, Brenton does not. >>

So Brenton's text reads: GUNH hH SKLHRA hHMERA EGO EIMI, yes?

But I wonder if perhaps it is possible that Brenton was translating the 
following?

GUNH EN SKLHRAi hHMERAi EGO EIMI.

I also wonder if perhaps Rahlfs's reading of hHi is a conjectural emendation?

there then a single one among us whose life in the remote degree could be 
called even the weakest effort in this direction?" (Soren Kierkegaard, 
"Attack Upon 'Christendom,'" 38).
