BDAG's second definition of μυριάς agrees with me--or, more precisely, I agree with them. They are an actual authority on biblical Greek; indeed, the standard lexicon. You, on the other hand, are a pseudonymous Internet contrarian, with no relevant credentials whatever.No. Literally.....μύριαι μυριάδες means an indefinite large number.
No, let's go back to the original claim of yours that I was addressing. You said:Like I said. YOU quoted Dan 7:10 as it is exactly like Deut 33:2.
This is, of course, factually incorrect. I listed the three examples of μυριάς cited by BDAG in their entry on μυριάς: Genesis 24:60, Deut. 33:2, and Daniel 7:10. Having been proved wrong, you changed your argument:"myriad" is not in the LXX.
This is, of course, factually incorrect. μυριάς occurs in Deut. 33:2: μυριάσιν is its dative plural form. Having been proven wrong a second time, you changed your argument yet again:I said specifically that myraid is not in Deut 33:2 and it isn't,
(Translation: "The little squiggles are all different, they can't mean the same thing!")Deut 33:2 has μυριάσιν
Daniel 7:10 has μύριαι
Are those the same words?
They are, in fact, the same words. μυριάσιν in Deuteronomy is a noun form, while μύριαι is a quantifier, a cardinal number. Of course, you ignored μυριάδες, also in Dan. 7:10--another noun form (vocative plural).
So at this point, we can just conclude that you're lying and making it up as you go.
Funnily enough, it only takes a few minutes to look up actual facts that prove you wrong.Yeah. I know. No one can possible work as hard as you do.
