Adler number: epsilon,3564
Translated headword: has praised, has blessed
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he/she/it] blasphemed.[1]
In reference to Job.[2] "Blessing he will bless."[3]
Greek Original:
*eu)lo/ghken: e)blasfh/mhsen. e)pi\ tou= *)iw/b. eu)logw=n eu)logh/sei.
The headword is evidently quoted from somewhere, perhaps Ep. Hebrews 7.6.
[1] Same glossing in other lexica.
[2] According to LSJ s.v., this verb ("bless") seems to be used in the sense of "curse" by a Hebrew euphemism: see Job 2:5 LXX.
[3] Deuteronomy 15:4 LXX; in Hebrew כִּי-בָרֵךְ יְבָרֶכְךָ kī-ḇārēḵ yḇāreḵeḵo. This doubled form is an intensifier. The Hebrew means "he will surely bless you".
