ἄνευ ποδῶν ἐπ᾿ ὤμοις φέρονται ἐνδεικνύμενοι τὴν ἑαυτῶν ἀτιμίαν τοῖς ἀνθρώποις, αἰσχύνονταί τε καὶ οἱ θεραπεύοντες αὐτὰ διὰ τό, μήποτε ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν πέσῃ, δι᾿ αὐτῶν ἀνίστασθαι·
Without feet they are carried on shoulders, showing their disgrace to the people, so even those who serve them are ashamed because it [the pagan idol] is caused to stand by them [i.e., by the attendants], lest it fall to the ground.
The δια το is followed by an embedded clause, set off by commas, complete with its own finite verb, and even another instance of the same preposition δι' which is not part of the δια το + infinitive construction.
In trying to find other similar situations I've experimented with several searches. The following one does return the Baruch 6:25 example, but none other.
"διὰ το" <AND> <WITHIN 0 Words> ., <FOLLOWED BY> <WITHIN 4-10 Words> [verb infin]
I have a couple of questions. First, is this a valid search for the construction I'm looking for? If so, then should I assume that this is the only example of this construction in the LXX (& NT since the same search there returns zero hits)? Second, is there a better way to do this, one that might not require an actual comma following δια το (which I specified with the ".,"), but which would still identify the preposition + article separated from its infinitival object by an embedded clause? Is there a syntax search that would be more appropriate or more accurate to describe this pattern?
