Summary

"Hoi Eudaimwn" (hoy you-dime-win): Greek for "The Blessed One"

I am the author of a book entitled "The Blessed One". Hoi Eudaimwn is an ancient Greek phrase with that meaning. I had to dig really deep to find this exact translation. In fact, the word was primarily used by Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC) to mean "divinely blessed", and seems to have disappeared since. I really only found 2 websites period which had the word. This one,"MAKARIOS vs EULOGEW of God" was the only one which told me exactly what I wanted. And this idea of "divinely blessed" is exactly that. I consider my Hoi Eudaimwn tattoo to be God's own brand on me, claiming me as His own. On the inside of my left bicep is it's predecessor, "Entheos", also Greek, meaning "God Within". So, necessarily or not, I now feel that God Himself has put into my mind to place His marks permanently upon my life

I'm Sometimes a celebrity-

Poppin' tops off champagne

Some still call me Dano-

Entheos is my proper name

I am Hoi Eudaimwn-

Just to still be standing here

They said that I never could-

Those the words I need to hear

I cut my teeth in Zeeland-

Broke my head at Tulip City

Right next to the runway-

F*ck you!- I don't want your pity

Relearned to talk, relearned to walk-

Relearned to stamp an envelope

I want it ALL- I wrestled God

Rewarded Faith- but crippled hip

I bleed mi-li-tant Faith- not hope

Cabo san Lucas- only 2 years later

Swim up to the bar-

Praise the Lord I made it

I'm a mothaf*ckin' warrior-

The Devil's taken my peace

Damn right I keep on fighting-

Christ be magnified in me!!!

Say "what up?" to Doctor Major-

I ain't mad, I'm only playin'

Soon you'll see me everywhere-

Driven by those words you're sayin'

Brotha' I'm a bless-ed man-

Just to do what I can

And I’ve seen the future-

Soon you'll agree I really am....



Hoi

Hoi

Hoi

Hoi

Hoi Eudaimwn

That's what I am

The Blessed One, the aura blindin'

En-theos

En-theos

God Within- Divinely grindin'

High off Life- Through the flames

Depths of Hell- but born again!

(En- fuego)

Unafraid, Undeterred, Undefeated

Under God- Under only Him

Yes, I am the Bless-ed One!

“Even facing Hell itself?”

Ha! You're talking a-bout Jesus' son!

You know that I am- Hoi Eudaimwn

(Bless-ed!!!)

You damn right- You know that I win!!!



Sometimes I feel a loser,

There are times that I feel victimized

Sometimes I feel alone

There are times that I feel hypnotized

But those times they are diminishing

Got new eyes- I see things differently

Hoi

Hoi

Hoi

I don't always get what I want

But I always get what I see

Don't always get it how I want it

But I always get it how it feels

Don't always get what I've got

But I always got what I believe

It’s all how it should be

If that's how I perceive

Whatever is good

Whatever is pure

Whatever is right

Whatsoever is worthy of praise

Dwell upon these things-

-God Bless the Days!!

Hoi

Hoi

Hoi

I am Hoi Eudaimwn!

Now I am in synergy

With Creation’s energy

It's impossible to fail

It's impossible to lose

It's impossible to fall,

because now I'm literally....

Society is dumbing-

The arrogance is numbing

But Jesus calls you by name-

Hear His Kingdom coming

Already got our Hero

But we surely need a leader:

A uniquely gifted orator,

Fear-less offensive matador,

Whipping boy to warrior.

It may be ME you're lookin' for

I am all things unto all men

That by all means I might save some

So I'm gonna get- your respect-

Just give me a price son

'Cause I'mma getcha' ear-

Just like I'm a Bless-ed Tyson

Murdered by Sin

-Jesus- gave my life to HIM

There's no man quite like me-

But I'm just like a lot of them

My Yesterday is busted-

So now I'm gonna bust out

Jesus saved my soul-

And Blessed the chest I thrust out

God called before my life began:

"ENTHEOS- HOI EUDAIMWN,

SATAN WANTS YOU- TAKE A STAND

I'M WITH YOU- YOU'RE A CHAMPION"


So........

"Hi, my name is Daniel-

I am here to change the World!!!"



I am the Bless-ed One

Stronger than the rest of 'em

So I will live life resolutely,

There's no doubt I'm absolutely......

transcript from MAKARIOS vs EULOGEW of God Carl W. Conrad -Sun Sep 13 09:13:13 EDT 1998

(3) Aristotle Nic Eth 1101a7/1101a19 distinguishes MAKARIOS from EUDAIMWN.
The fact is that EUDAIMWN in the older sense of the Greek word conveys the
notion of "divinely blest" or even "sharing in the quality of existence of
the gods." In the 5th century and later, however, it tended to mean
"prosperous," and even "rich"--and one sees MAKARIOS used that way too. In
the passage in Nic Ethics indicated above (it's in Book 1 of the Ethics,
where Aristotle is setting forth his conception of EUDAIMONIA as the TELOS
of human existence), Aristotle endeavors to reclaim the older sense of
EUDAIMWN from the meaner materialistic sense that it has come to have in
the 5th and 4th centuries: so the EUDAIMWN is one who lives in accordance
with the fullest ARETH, both moral and intellectual, and is sufficiently
endowed with social status and external goods to be able to exhibit that
ARETH in a life that is full and long and unmarked by any savage reversal
of fortune that might undermine his ARETH ("... for one swallow does not
make a summer.") So, after making clear what he means by EUDAIMWN he
attempts to distinguish it from EUTUCHS--one who may be "fortunate" without
being virtuous, and from even MAKARIOS--one who may be so well off as to be
deemed by the multitude as enjoying godlike bliss.

Now, how does this all apply to the original question? It seems to me that
what this implies is that use of MAKARIOS with reference to God is
exceedingly rare and something of an aberration from normal usage in
Biblical Greek. It properly refers to those described in Jesus'
"Beatitudes" and to the man who keeps the Torah in Psalm 1--and to a few
others. On the other hand, EULOGEW seems to have more to do with the human
act of praising God for goodness and greatness; the secular Greek
equivalent might be in reference to the MAKARIOTHS of the gods, but the
secular Greek usage would think more of the blissful existence of the gods
rather than of God's righteousness, compassion, goodness, and greatness.
