This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1914 edition. Excerpt: ...that the characteristic consonant of the Perfect active is x. The Second, or Strong. Perfect Some Perfects are formed by adding the endings direct to the stem without x, these are called Strong Prefects, or Second Perfects. The verb 7a, uBdvw and the stem e'p (generally given under Xeyw) begin their Perfect tenses with ei instead of a reduplication. Examples of the use of the Perfect from the New Testament Note that in all these examples stress is laid on the completeness and permanence of the action described. A good example of the exact meaning of the Perfect participle will be found in sentence 9 in the following exercise. This should be contrasted with the meaning of the Present participle of the same verb which is used in sentence 10. Another good example is found in sentence 14 where e'a-ravpaq1.evou denotes a permanent quality--"one who has been crucified." It is impossible to render this meaning exactly in English, as has been said above. If the Aorist participle 0-ravpw6eis had been used in this sentence it would simply have denoted the historical fact that Christ was crucified. The tenses of the Greek Verb have now all been given. To repeat the first person singular of the Indicative mood of each of these tenses is called giving the parts of the verb. A list of the parts of the verbs occurring most commonly in the New Testament is given at the end. The student should now begin to learn those which are given at the head of each exercise. 2 dvrlxplaros, 0v, 6 "Antichrist." 5 Kanipqmca perf. from lramp-yew "I bring to nought, I put away." 4 T6.
