part II b                   (confirmation that the prophets indeed háve been corrupted)

brothers ,
(do) – not – be – children – (..+ruled..) – (by-) the – [..] depraved – mind [=’thinking’] ,
[+but] – become – matured – [=over] – it :            +

in – the – (..scriptures..) – (is) written :                   [Is.28, the “how to read prophets” chapter
b                                                                                                        was also used in the parables , see pages]
[taken from (hR-) Is.28:11 :]                            
that=because       +
(..the scroll..) (sphe=sphr) – (has been) mocked with [=’or: made unintelligible’] [H3932] ,
[+as] the one speaking – (..+fálsehood..) – to – the people” ;
c
[IF that quote continues here :]   
“(..yet..) – [=they] [=’believers’] say :
(we do) (..not..) (zath=la) – (néed to-) (..enquire..) – [=about] [=him] [=’the scroll’]“ ;

                                                                                                           [so the scroll became a stumblingblock :]

[ch.14 resumed :]                                                                                  [22 : ‘a sign’ is always “for 1 group”]
therefore ,
the – language – [+in them] [=’scriptures’] – is – for – (a-) sign – [..2x..] – (to-) believers :

[=therefore] – all – (the-) sayings – (..+(were) a sound..) (+hygiainô) – language [=’tongue’] ;

          24a
          (+what) – (..I read..) (ean=anaginôskô) – [=in] – the – prophecies ? ;                               [sic !]

                                                                                                                                                                      [next : the 144 :]

[+and] or=who – (will) expose – (the-) ordinary ones [=’corrupt sayings’] ,         +
d
by=when – he (will) investigate – all – (..+the words..) [..] ;

[+then]       +
the – secrets – (-in) the – (..prophets..) – [..] (will) become – clear [-to him] ,

and – because of that – [+he] (will) fall down – on – (his-) face – [=as] – worshipping – God ;

part III    —   deel III              how to restore the lines (‘paragraphs’) in the prophets

 

continued context  —
… beginning with a ‘restart from previous line 6’ in line 26b ;

 

26
[=because] – [..] (the-) (..sayings..) – (..must..(be)..) – grouped togéther [=’l.23’] – (..again..) ;

27                                                                                                                              [27a : the “cross-reading” concept]
[+therefore] ,
when – any – saying [=’line’] – (..appears..)       +
according to – two – or – three – (..other ones..) – and=in – (..anóther..) – place [-in prophets] ,
b
let you interpret [=’translate’] – [=that] – one [-rightly] ;

28
[=but] – if – there exists – nó – (..other..) [=’line’] ,
b
let you be silent – [=and] – (..ponder..) (ekklêsia=dialogizomai) – (in-) [=yourself] ,      +
c
[=whát] – [..] God – (may have) said ;

29
[=because] – (..by..) – two – or – three – sayings ,                                          [<< read : “as valid lines”]
b
[=any] – [..] óther one – (can be) judged [=’or: ‘discerned’] ;                          [<< looking at context]
30
[=and] – if – (that-) other one – (is) revealed – [+as] (an-) (..insane one..) (kathémai=mainomai) ,
b
it (must be) silenced [=’dismissed’] – (from-) the – previous ones ; 

                                                                                                      [next 31 : important , because after ‘dismissing’,
                                                                                                  ‘an authority’ is needed to restore the right ones]
31
[+and] – you (will be) able – [for-] – (..to recognize..) – (-the) (..true..) – ones – [..1x..] ,
b
for – [..] you (will) learn – (..which..) – (..words..) – (are) required [G3870] ;                     [31 : true]
32
[=because]       +
(..the words..) – (in-) prophets – (are) subject – (to the-) spirit [=’context’] – (in-) prophets ;
33
[+as] – God – is – not – [the author-] (of-) confusion , but – (of-) hármony ;

part III b                           (continued – open invitation to go understand prophets)

 

continued context  —
… please see how above 33a is the closing of that line :
because Esau messed with 33b and next 34a to introduce his “women may not speak”
(playing upon roots –guné and -agnoéo) , yet we still have a running theme here !

                                                                                    [next 34a-37 : main theme is attested in prophets :]

34
[+but] – he [=God] (is) silent – in=to – all – the – saints [=’l.33b’] – (in-) the – churches ,
b
[=as] – not – permitting – [=himself] – to speak – to speak [+to them] ;
c
[=because] – [+they] (have) submitted [+themselves]         +                                                    [c : sic]
[..] (to-) the – (..ignorant [=’corrupted’]..) (nomos=guné) – sayings ;

35
[=therefore] , if – anyone – (would) desire – to learn – at=whát – (..he [=God] said..) ,
b
let him investigate – the – (..words..) (tous=logos) – (of the-) (..prophets..) (andras=) ;
c
for – it is – shameful         +
[+that] (the-) (..ignorant ones..) (guné=agnoéo) – (are) spoken – in – (the-) church ,    [sic]
36
[+because] – [..] the – word – [..] (of-) God – (has) departed – from – [=them] ;
b
or=and – it (will) – only – return – to=through – you [=’candidates’] :              +

above 35 and 36 :
… not just “the word should be returned”,
but included should be the notion “because then God will act again” , see closing ;

37
[+therefore] ,
if – anyone – [might-] consider – himself – to be – (a-) prophet – or – [to be-] spiritual ,
b
let him recognize [=’understand’] – the (-things) – I write – (to-) you [-here] ,
c
because – it is – (the-) command – (of the-) Lord [=Christ , here] ;                               [<< sic !]

 

closing :                                                                             [37c was a rather solid closing : next : tricky:]

below 38 :
… we separated next 38 from previous 37 b ,
because a line like “this is the command – but okay , if one is ignorant….” sounds very Off ;
we cannot guarantee the colour of each line below ,
but 39-40 appears to be a promise that the 144,000 will become (as attested in prophets) ;  

38
[..] (..many..) – ones [=’people’] – (are) ignorant – [+and] (will stay) ignorant ;              [<< ?]
39
[=therefore] , brothers ,
desire earnestly [=’1.Cor.13’] – (..+to understand..) – the – prophets ,
b
[=for] – [+when?] [=you] – (will) speak – [..2x..] – [+their] language [=’tongue’] ,

40                                                                                        [39-40 : unsure ; little syntax to refer back to]
[+then] (?) – all [+of you] (?)        +
(will) become – the honorable ones [2156=2158?] – [=in] – [+his] ranks. [=Christ , per 37c?]
