EXAMPLES OF "OU ME"
Though a double negative is inappropriate grammar in our English language, it is the strongest way to express emphatic negation in the Greek. "Ou" (which means no) and "me" (which means no) when combined with the indicative or subjunctive moods stress the denial of a certainty or possibility, and could be translated by a strong "never."
