@Kelsey48 I've edited the title for clarity and the question for organization. If you prefer a different English translation, feel free to re-edit.

Attempted to clarify title to match actual question, add English verse text, and reorder the wording of the question for better organization.

@Kelsey48: The word διχάζω does not carry (of itself) any emotional connotation. It simply means "to divide in two," or "to separate." Obviously, such could come about because of the "hate" of one for another, but the term itself (as best I can tell) does not carry any such idea without context adding that idea to what caused the division.

comment What is “the gift of God” in Eph 2:8
@JackDouglas: I do not believe John 6:29 (in the context of John 6) indicates faith is a work done by people there, either (and so does not contradict the statement made here about Eph 2:8). But that is another question...

comment Are there two distinct words [‘lexemes’] for ‘fish’ in Jonah 2?
@Joseph: I totally agree with Davïd that you need to argue for a Hiphil Inf. Abs., not a Piel (follow the trail back from that comment). That matches the consonantal textform and forms of the other (disputed) uses of Inf. Abs. with a construct noun.

@JoshuaBigbee: That sounds like a good base passage to answer the question, though whether (2) or (3) may still need addressing.

comment Should different but synonymous words be translated differently?
@JoshuaBigbee: Well, what I mean is the fact of whether escalation is intended or not is the answer to the question of what word distinction (if any at all) should be done. I'll reword that sentence.
