Future Indicative: The Gnomic Future

(1) The Gnomic Future. The Future Indicative may be used to state what will customarily happen when occasion offers.

Rom. 5:7; μόλις γὰρ ὑπὲρ δικαίου τις ἀποθανεῖται, for scarcely for a righteous man will one die. See also Gen. 44:15; Rom. 7:3, χρηματίσει. Observe the Gnomic Presents both before and after.
