comment Are the 'vessels of wrath' in Romans 9:22 'prepared for' or are they 'preparing themselves for destruction'?
Sure, but please also reproduce the Greek text along with the English in that case so that the answer is also equally desirable to the OP (me) :P - And also don't avoid scholarly language when it can convey a lot of information and demonstrate that you are aware of ideas such as the middle/deponent controversy in Greek linguistics research.

@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.
