. I figured out the sevening, now.
Okay, in each case the difference between the amen leyw humin
clauses is divisible by 3 or 7, but the reason for the anaphora is to center on a key turning point IN HISTORY. So now I gotta go find what that is. It will be very noticeable. Dunno when I'll come up for air! When Paul did this, it took me 100 pages of writing in REPARSED to explain, and I really never finished!
Paul used the anaphora on two 'tracks' 1) playing on the 231-x in Daniel 9:24-27 and Magnificat; 2) playing on Noah's 308 or 315 or 364.
Am fainting now.
First amen leyw humin
starts in Matt 24:2, syllable 57 prior, 63 at end (no hoti
). Remember, Nwe, mia, and anomia now aren't dipthongs. Meter count is 6 syllables.Translates to 93AD (end year) after, just before pre-Church Mill was supposed to start.
Next is verse 34, syll 1110 before, 1118 after (includes hoti
). Trinity meter at 1110-63 OR 57. So is the first amen leyw humin
occurrence included or not? Enquiring minds want to know. Translates to 1140-1148AD (end year).Treat the count as from 1110-57, so the total meter count is 1053, or 351 threes.
3rd is v.47, syll 1532 before, 1540 after (again includes hoti
); Anaphora therefore, 3 times. 1532-1118 is Trinity meter, excluding the clause, so you exclude it from the totals, too; count still stands at 1053. Else, no meter
. So the 63 includes the first occurrence; the 1532 excludes the 2nd.Translates to 1562-1570AD (end year).
4th is 25:12, syll 2000 before, 2006 after (no hoti
). 2000 OR 2006 -1532=Trinity Meter. So assume 2000-1532. So now the third occurrence is included. So add to the count, 468, so 1053+468=1521, or 507 threes.Translates to 2030-2036AD (end year).
5th is v.40, syll 2960 before, 2966 after (no hoti
). Get this: 2960-2000 (or 2006, but presume 2000) =Trinity meter, but 2966-2000 SEVENS. So if I include BOTH the fourth and fifth occurrences, it sevens. First time I could find this happening! As if to make up for the 2nd occurrence being left out, in Chapter 24:34! Roman snub? Like Matthew leaving out Athaliah's line from Chapter 1?So add to the count, 2966-2000=966+1521=2487, 829 threes.Translates to 2990-2996AD (end year).
Last is v.45, 3169 before, 3175 after (no hoti
). 3169-2966 SEVENS at 203 (Temple Down).
So the new threes' total is.. NOT. For the 203 addition, is not divisible by 3. HOWEVER, if instead we take 3175-1540, which was the THIRD anaphora of amen legw humin, ending Chapter 24, we get 1635 as the difference, and THAT is 545 threes.Translates to 3199-3205AD (end year).
SO: there is an OVERLAP at 1532-1540. Correlates to 1562-1570 AD, during the voting period which occurs during the REFORMATION. Because, 1540-63= 211 sevens, but 3175-1540, is 545 threes. So if counting by threes, I can't finish but the period gets overlapped. If STOPPING at 1540, it sevens; then picking up at 1540 going to 3175, no overlap, it threes. Why?
Now, Paul built his anaphora of Time based on the BETWEENS, creating a nexus in the middle. Here, that would be the 3rd one. The one which EXCLUDES the second
occurrence of amen leyw humin.
Finally, the sum of the anaphora must seven. It doesn't, all the way. It sevens from 1540-63. It only threes, after that;
putting the hoti on the next line doesn't help.
I gotta think about that, because it's been awhile since I worked on how Paul did it. Suspect he's aping the Lord, so now gotta go figure that out.
YIKES! There IS an overlap, and it's a doozie!
1540 (end of 3rd amen legw humin, last in chapter 24) -63 = 1477 years, = 211 SEVENS.
3175 (end of last amen legw humin in Chapter 25) - 1110 (when 2nd amen legw humin of Chap 24 starts) = 2065, 295 sevens, total of 506 sevens, and the overlap is 430 years (same as the time Israel was in Egypt, 400 of which at the end, were slavery)! The 430 is neither divisible by seven nor by 3.
Now when Paul did this, he used the overlap to show a turning point in history (centered around Constantine after he beat Licinius and then started NEW ROME), Eph 1:12. And so it was: that's when Church officially became political, uniting Church and State.
Well, Paul denoted the CAUSE, for in our overlap HERE IN MATTHEW, during 1110+30 to 1540+30, the Catholic Church had everyone in thrall. 1540+30 was when (on April 21), the POPE excommunicated Elizabeth I, and England finally did have HER Reformation, lasting until (ding ding ding) the end of the historical voting period none of them even knew, 1640 AD (Matthew 25 benchmarks 1607 rather than 1610, if I did the parsing right in that section). BIBLE FREED FROM SLAVERY AT LAST.
BTW, the diekonesamen
in v.44, is now 6 syll (nee: 5). Again, because it seems the di sound is separated by Matthew in writing (de remains swallowed when post-positive particle de).
