Delirium from translating simple greek sentences 2 hours later:

I just worked on the bit in John 21 where Jesus asks Peter if he loves Him, and Peter responds ‘Lord, you know that I love (fileo) you’, and I translated it before I checked the verse reference. Once I recognized the passage I was working on and  the words for ‘love’ used (and the connotations they possess), the largest, most stupid grin broke out on my face. Certainly no feat of translation, but reading a wonderful text like that for the first time in the Koine was really spectacular.

Alright, Im done now.

Looks like I’ll be picking up some from the new fall collection soon.
