Headword: Eulogêsai hêmas ho theos
Adler number: epsilon,3566
Translated headword: may God bless us
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[sc. This verb is used] with an accusative. It is fitting to know that when mankind "blesses" God they offer only words to him, but are not able to benefit him in deed. When God blesses he makes firm his words by his action and he provides to those being blessed a supply of every kind of good things.
Greek Original:
Eulogêsai hêmas ho theos: aitiatikêi. eidenai prosêkei, hôs eulogountes men hoi anthrôpoi ton theon logous autôi prospherousi monous, ergôi de auton euergetêsai ou dunantai. ho de theos eulogôn bebaioi tous logous tôi ergôi kai pantodapên parechei phoran agathôn tois eulogoumenois.
Notes:
After the initial grammatical gloss this is Theodoret (PG 80, 1373bc) on Psalm 66:8 LXX (the headword phrase).
See also epsilon 3565.
