Re: a modal yiqtol in Gen 2:6a?

Dear Mark, The issue in my view is not modality, but rather semantics versus pragmatics, which is a neglected field in Hebrew studies. When we analyze a clause, and we come up with a certain interpretation of the verb, the question is whether the force of the verb that we see is an intrinsic factor ...

Re: When was yhwh replaced by 'adonai?

Dear Karl and Ste Walch, Since the focus of the list is Biblical Hebrew, we should stick to that. To discuss how the New Testament writers used the Hebrew Scriptures is legitimate, in my view. But christological issues are outside b-hebrew, so I refrain from such discussions. I only want to reiterat...

Dear Steve, Steve Miller wrote: Could the evidence indicate that the LXX was changed to use kurios in place of yhwh after the NT was written, to align with the NT? You mentioned that the earliest NT manuscripts that quote the OT, which are at the end of the 2nd century, used abbreviations for Theos ...

Dear Isaac, Isaac Fried wrote: Also the theophoric name אביהוא ABYHWA (AB-YHWA) of Ex. 6:23 vocalized as אֲבִיהוּ. Consider also the theophoric name אליהוא ELYHWA (EL-YHWA) of 1Sam. 1:1 vocalized as I am not sure what you want me to look for. The original question was the nature of the consonants in...

Dear Isaac, Isaac Fried wrote: Consider also the theophoric name יהוא of 2Kings 19:16 vocalized as יֵהוּא YEHU. This is not a theophoric name. The name has two syllables, and the sere in the first open syllable represents a pretonic lengthening. The second syllable has the stress, and the vowel is l...

Dear Karl, K.W. Randolph wrote: We have from later sources that אדני was being said when readers encountered the name יהוה, but how soon did that practice arise? Any answer by necessity will be speculation because we’re dealing with something that was oral and not written down. Because we’re dealing...
