comment Are the 'vessels of wrath' in Romans 9:22 'prepared for' or are they 'preparing themselves for destruction'?
@Joseph there is some good stuff in this answer - your beginning is intriguing, but your conclusion doesn't follow from your premises. There's just also a lot of irrelevant stuff that actually weakens your argument. Again, it started strong, but contains non sequitur logic. Also, I'd love to see you reproduce the Greek rather than English text which will make this even more apparent. I read Greek fine, just translate parts of the clause as relevant. It may help to clarify your understanding of the use of the middle by Paul and in Koine Greek in general. You appear to believe in true deponent

Yes, @Joseph I agree with ScottS. This answer started strong but then shifted to a bunch of verses with no linguistic connection to the verb under discussion. Using active verbs to discuss a middle/passive form is irrelevant. Your argument is non sequitur.

comment How does a Bible translator know if it is a poem?
When this was originally written it may have been OK, but over here at BH.SE we have requirements for showing your work (don't just tell us what you know, tell us how you know it). I'd really love to see you edit this to give some sources and develop/explain your ideas more fully, as they are much appreciated.

@RaphaelRosch but it's a perfectly valid perspective and he shows his work for it. I'm glad to have Dick's perspective, and many others alongside it. +1

The best way to add additional information to your post is by editing it, with the edit button. It is more visible that way, and comments are mainly for secondary, temporary purposes. Comments are removed under a variety of circumstances. Anything important to your post should be in the post itself.
