Headword: Μεγαλεῖα
Adler number: mu,357
Translated headword: magnificent [things]
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] lofty [ones], great [ones]. "What magnificent things you have done for me, o God."
Greek Original:
Μεγαλεῖα: ὑψηλά, μεγάλα. ἃ ἐποίησάς μοι μεγαλεῖα ὁ θεός.
Notes:
Theodoret (PG 80, 1425c) on Psalm 70:19-20 LXX (= 71:19-20 RSV): ὁ θεός, ἕως ὑψίστων ἃ ἐποίησας μεγαλεῖα; ὁ θεός, τίς ὅμοιός σοι̣ . ("O God, even to the highest places what magnificent things you have done; O God, who is like you?"). However, the text here does not match perfectly, and requires including ὁ θεός from the second line. Perhaps Theodoret was also thinking of Luke 1.48-50 (= Odae 9.48-50 LXX): ἰδοὺ γὰρ ἀπὸ τοῦ νῦν μακαριοῦσίν με πᾶσαι αἱ γενεαί, ὅτι ἐποίησέν μοι μεγαλεῖα ὁ δυνατός ("Look, for from now on all the generations will count me blessed, because the Lord has done magnificent things for me"). This is Mary's song of praise, the "Magnificat".
