Question Rapiemur or Rapturo?

Default Re: Rapiemur or Rapturo?

Well well well, the Latin Vulgate at Crosswalk.com has Rapiemur:

17 deinde nos qui vivimus qui relinquimur simul rapiemur cum illis in nubibus obviam Domino in aera et sic semper cum Domino erimus.

Default Re: Rapiemur or Rapturo?

The order of word usage seems to be (harpazo) in Greek first, then (rapiemur) in Latin, and later (rapture). The wording doesn't matter as much as the idea of what is being said and how it is understood by the reader.

Rapturo would be the dative/ablative singular form of the future participle. . . .

The form of the word you would find in a dictionary (first person singular present indicative active) is "rapio." "Rapiemur" ("we shall be snatched away") is the first person plural future indicative passive.

Rapiemur and rapturo are two forms of the same verb, viz: rapio, rapere, rapui, raptus - "to catch or seize" (among other definitions). Rapiemur is the first person, plural, future, indicative, passive. Rapturo is the future active participle.

It is like asking if "caught" is a form of "catch" or if "catching" is a form of "catch"? -- They are both forms of "catch".

Cool Re: Rapiemur or Rapturo?

Also, having checked two, I would guess most dictionaries would tell you that the etymology of "rapture"* is from rapere, more likely through the perfect passive participle (raptus) than the future active participle.

(* If it didn't just tell you to "see rapt", which would bear the etymology)
