In active sentences we find the gerundive in the function Praedicativum with the Object (`Object Praedicativum'). Examples are (23) and (24):

(23) populus Romanus consuli potius Crasso quam privato Africano bellum gerendum dedit (`The Roman people preferred the consul C. to the private person A. as their leader in the war', Cic. Phil. 11.18)

(24) domos nostras et patriam ipsam vel diripiendam vel inflammandam reliquimus (`We have left our homes and our very fatherland to be destroyed or set on fire', Cic. Fam. 16.12.1)

For further examples see K.–St. II.731 f.
