I am a Canadian, married with kid, and working in Hong Kong. I usually answer posts from a reformed / protestant / evangelical perspective.

People I have encountered on this site seem to be a ‘whole bunch of good people’. Even those who sharply disagree with my own point of view.

I am a huge sinner but am happy knowing God's grace will keep me in his grip.

I have seen a few options and agree Isaiah 60:1-2 is the most acceptable answer.

comment How can Psalms 68:18 be translated as in Ephesians 4:8?
Interestingly I looked up the Romans 3:4 case and although this may be a good example, as you argue, Paul happens to be using the switch that the LXX already did. νικήσῃς ἐν τῷ κρίνεσθαί σε - to conquer when you are judged.

+1 - This seems very close to the answer from Hodge I posted but I lean more to his view that the decision in this context is simply God's incarnation which parallels God coming down to Israel (although he did descend further for sure). Also that the plunder is the whole church and all the blessing he obtained for her.

@MonicaCellio - The closer I read his statements I see Hodge is not really convinced of this, but I think he should have not mentioned it then. I looked myself and this does not seem tenable so I removed that part from my post. Good catch. I think it is clear he has revised the word.
