2 Corinthians 6:18

Saith the Lord Almighty (legei Kurio pantokratwr). 2 Samuel 7:8 . This use of ei is a Hebraism for Hebrew le instead of predicate nominative. Pantokratwr (pa, kratew, Ruler of all) is common in the LXX. Occurs also in the inscriptions and papyri. In the N.T. only here and in Revelation.
