The long and short of it all!

Thanks, George - Your reply sent me to Perseus to really do the long and 
short [only] comparison, ELEOS vs HLEOS, leaving out the [now spurious] 
HLIOS, and the results, pity/mercy vs crazed/distraught, threw me over to 
Paul's remark that the wisdom [mercy/revelation] of God is foolishness to 
the world, and I would not venture to speculate on the relatedness or lack 
of it in these two words.

Thanks again!
