1. Question - Reference Request, and Textual Basis:
In 1 Corinthians 13:10 -
Why is " ἐκ | out of " left out of the translation?
Are there any period texts that also have similar constructions?
Could a consistent translation be derived from those examples?
2. The Issue / Claim:
HELPS Word-studies - 1537 ek (a preposition, written eks before a vowel) – properly, "out from and to" (the outcome); out from within. 1537 /ek ("out of") is one of the most under-translated (and therefore mis-translated) Greek propositions [sic] ...
