comment “Under heaven” or “under the heavens” on day three of creation?
"...not a good idea" - indeed. Although, @JackDouglas, to be fair, the 1901 ASV, the 1952 RSV, and the 1973 NASB (although not the KJV or the 1885 English Revised Version) all had the idea before the ESV, which seems to have inherited it. Perhaps the earlier translators recoiled from having "under the heaven" (sounds a bit stark?) in keeping with the KJV, and opted for the plural and retaining the article rather than adopting the NJB tactic of saying, simply, "under heaven". FWIW.

comment Was the text of Matthew 28:19 changed?
If anyone cares, the two-volume Loeb edition of the Apostolic Fathers are at Archive.org: here's Didache 7:1 (in vol. 1); and here's volume 2. FWIW!

Have you mis-read the Gesenius entry, Frank? The first "class" is "upon", not "above, over", and the fourth better glossed with "unto, against" (in Gesenius's handling). See also (or in preference?) Driver's extensive entry in BDB.
