comment Why pray, “lead us not into temptation”?
@MonicaCellio The Greek word used here is "εἰσενέγκῃς", whose dictionary form is εἰσφέρω. That word is made up of elements meaning literally 'carry into'; if what I understand the usual root for 'lead' is was used, it would be εἰσάγω. But my Greek isn't strong enough to say whether the difference in roots is meaningful or just a quirk of idiom—maybe make a separate question for this?

comment Misleading “but” in Matthew 5:22 KJV?
@Jon My understanding is δε is used before consonants and δ (usually with an apostrophe, δ') before vowels.

Hmm... does omnipotence have a sense of 'wasted effort'? (Indeed, Romans 9:18-24, etc., suggests that the potter creates some vessels to destroy them.)

@Peter Actually wanted to cut that out altogether as I mainly wanted it for the hedging, not the content itself. Will do that.
