Re: Genesis 2:6 and the aspects

Dear Steve, You wrote: What is the difference in meaning if this verse started with a waw-verb instead of a waw-noun? Sequential actions start with a wayyiqtol. This is the vast majority of actions in a narrative. In my view, there would be no semantic difference, because a wayyiqtol is just as impe...

Genesis 2:6 and the aspects

Dear friends, Genesis 2:5 was recently discussed. I follow up with the next verse, looking at the aspects. My translation is: But a mist was ascending (יַֽעֲלֶ֣ה) from the earth, and it watered (וְהִשְׁקָ֖ה) the whole surface of the ground." The reason for the yiqtol is that a word is preceding...

Re: Targum Onqelos on Genesis 2:5

Dear Michael, Your translation is very literal but understandable. your rendering "not caused" two times is not necessary, because both verbs are peal perfect, corresponding to qal. But your rendering "not made" is fine, because the verb is afel perfect, corresponding to hifil. T...

Re: 1 Kings 10:22 - Carthage & Monkeys

Dear Lee, All your claims in the quote below are wrong, except that some Israeli scholars view David and Solomon as fictious. David & Solomon belong too the mythological realm and Israeli scholars admit they are fictitious. The author of Daniel gave Nebuchadnezzar a short reign, even though the ...

Re: 1 Kings 10:22 - Carthage & Monkeys

Dear Lee, You are wrong in connection with the language of the DSS. 87% of the DSS are written in Hebrew. The writers tried to write Classical Hebrew, and to a great extent they succeeded. Only 13% of the DSS are written in Aramaic, and that is not Imperial Aramaic. Imperial Aramaic was not created ...

Re: 1 Kings 10:22 - Carthage & Monkeys

Dear Lee, Your answer is a typical example of an ignorance of the Problem of Induction. George Darwin, the son of Charles, invented the theory that the moon had been one piece with the earth, but that it had pulled away from the still molten earth. What would this theory predict? That the earth and ...

Re: 1 Kings 10:22 - Carthage & Monkeys

Dear Lee, Have you ever herd about "the Problem of Induction." Please look at its definition and examples. You cannot just show some pictures and say:"This explains the Persian anachronism in 1 Kings." With all resept for you as a person, your answer is pure nonsense! When you cl...

Re: 1 Kings 10:22 - Carthage & Monkeys

Dear Lee, To be honest, I do not understand the points with most of your posts, when you put Hebrew and Greek words side by side. But in this post there is a point, that Tyre and Carthage were not founded when Solomon reigned. Please give a detailed discussion of the evidence that that support your ...

Re: Nimrod

Dear Lee, It is not possible to know know the origin of the name Nimrod, or definitely connect it with a historical person. But your explanation of the name may be correct. In my book Assyrian, Babylonian, Egyptian, and Persian Chronology Compared with the Chronology of the Bible —Volume 1 Persian C...

Re: Isaiah 9:6

Dear Lee, In connection with Isaiah 9:6 you are on thin ice. Do you really mean that Classical Hebrew has tenses and that Greek aorist represents past tense? (tense=grammticalization of location in time) In my dissertation: A New Understanding of the Verbal System of Classical Hebrew An Attempt to D...
