Of me Paul with mine own hand
(th emh ceiri Paulou
). Literally, "With the hand of me Paul." The genitive Paulou
is in apposition with the possessive pronoun emh
which is in the instrumental case just as in 2 Thessalonians 3:17
, the sign in every Epistle. He dictated, but signed at the end. If we only had that signature on that scrap of paper.
