St. John Chrysostom Paschal Homily in English
St. John Chrysostom Paschal Homily in Greek

In the above English translation of St. John Chrysostom's Paschal Homily, "epikranthi" is translated as "troubled" and "uproar". Neither of these words capture the meaning of epikranthi quite the way that "vexed" does. Words matter. It is a difficult task to capture the spirit of the original meaning of words. When it comes to the Bible, we must make the effort - as Chrysostom did.
