      J 3,29: CHARA CHAIREI is associative dative (dativus modi which in this case
      is also dativus internus). It is used in the NT as a imitation of the Hebrew
      infinitive absolute (Gen 2,17: mot tamut - you shall die by death). The
      construction is used for emphasis.

      Is this what you were asking?
