32.234 Optative Mood

In classical Greek, the optative mood is much more widely used than in Biblical Greek. In fact, the optative mood has almost completely disappeared in Biblical Greek. Make sure you read his notes in section 234 about the rare instances in which the optative mood is found in Biblical Greek, including the phrase μὴ γένοιτο, "let it not be!" This phrase is a favorite of Paul, and is found often in his letters.
