Headword: Ὤγ
Adler number: omega,6
Translated headword: Og
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Og], king of Bashan,[1] and Sihon, king of the Amorites,[2] were proud of their authority. Because of the size of his body, Og used an iron bed, which was 9 cubits long and 5 cubits wide.[3] The king of Bashan is called Og, that is 'partition,' because his deeds of shame blocked off the way of our salvation. The Lord will slay him for the freedom of those who are being conquered.[4]
Greek Original:
Ὤγ, βασιλεὺς τῆς Βασάν, καὶ Σηών, βασιλεὺς τῶν Ἀμορραίων, οἷον ἐπὶ δυναστείᾳ ἐσεμνύνοντο. ὁ δὲ Ὢγ καὶ κλίνῃ ἐκέχρητο σιδηρᾷ διὰ τὸ τοῦ σώματος μέγεθος, θ# μὲν πήχεις τὸ μῆκος, ε# δὲ τὸ εὖρος ἐχούσῃ. ὁ βασιλεὺς τῆς Βασὰν Ὢγ προσαγορεύεται, τουτέστι διάφραξις: ὡς τῶν ἔργων τῆς αἰσχύνης [τοῦτο γὰρ ἡ Βασάν] τὴν ὁδὸν τῆς σωτηρίας ἡμῖν ἀποφρασσόντων. ὃν ἀποκτενεῖ κύριος ἐπ' ἐλευθερίᾳ τῶν κρατουμένων.
