I am attempting to memorize Romans 8 from my GNT. So far I've got the
first 8 vss down pretty solidly. But I've bumped up against a practical
problem. I cite the reference as well as the vss in Greek but I'm not
sure what preposition to use when citing a range of vss. For example in
English we say:
"Romans eight one through (to) four"
In Greek I would say:
"PROS hRWMAIOUS OKTW hEIS (EIS, DIA, PROS, EPI, PARA, hEWS) (TESSARAS,
Which prep. should I use? (Perhaps one I have not listed)
Which prep. did the ancient writers use when citing a range of numerals?
Yours in His grace,
