Good day to you all. I hope the Lord is blessing each of you in your own
respective lives. If you have the opportunity, I would enjoy some input on
the following text that was posited as a translation exercise from my koine
workbook. It reads as follows.
EGO POIW TO ERGOU TOU AGGELOU AUTOS DE EXEI THN DOXAN TOU QEOU.
Workbook Suggested Translation:
I do the work of the angel, and *he* [editing mine] has the glory of God.
My question is about how we know what the word AUTOS is referring to. Is it
possible to translate the sentence "I do the work of the angel, and it
[referring to the work] has the glory of God?"
Your input is greatly appreciated.
A man's pride will bring him low,
but a humble spirit will obtain honor.
