Headword: Ἡμέραν πονηρὰν
Adler number: eta,298
Translated headword: evil day
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Scripture calls the day of retribution [an evil day], just as [it calls] the servants of retribution evil angels; and in reference to God, bitter retributions are called rage and anger and affliction. For it does not say that [evil] is [their] nature or will.[1]
Greek Original:
Ἡμέραν πονηρὰν ἡ Γραφὴ τὴν τῆς τιμωρίας καλεῖ, ὥσπερ καὶ ἀγγέλους πονηροὺς τοὺς τῆς τιμωρίας ὑπουργούς: ὀργὴν δὲ καὶ θυμὸν καὶ θλῖψιν ἐπὶ θεοῦ τὰς πικρὰς τιμωρίας καλεῖ. οὐ γὰρ φύσιν οὐδὲ προαίρεσίν φησιν.

From alpha 196; cf. eta 299.
