Matthew 7:9 H TIS ESTIN EC hUMWN ANQRWPOS, hON AITHSEI hO hUIOS AUTOU
ARTON, MH LIQON EPIDWSEI AUTWi;
This sentence seems rather strange to me.
The question is TIS; What man would give him a stone? Yet the negating
particle seems to be connected to LIQON and EPIDWSEI as if the question was-
Would he give him a stone?
To the inexperienced Greek reader that I am, the sentence seems to say;
Which man among you, if his son will ask him for a loaf, will give him not a
stone? (Or- will not give him a stone?)
