Re: Zaphnathpaaneah

This is a little off-topic. It is more historical than linguistic. But I am matching linguistics on a couple of Biblical names, Zephanath Paneah and Leah. ******* The Tale of Two Brothers has been linked to Joseph; The earliest reference to this is linked to Seti II. One Generation later is Siptah, ...

"DSS even has extra space between the verses." -- Agreed. The Dead Sea Scrolls have spaces. https://www.baslibrary.org/bible-review/8/3/19 "Ancient Greek was commonly written like that. Stone monuments from Athens and other Greek cities, Greek papyri found in Egypt, classical and bibl...

Re: Biblical Hebrew vocabulary

Re-translating the Bible

Hi guys, My Hebrew is terrible. I look at the letters, and some of them look the same. It's honestly hard for me to transcribe. One of my goals of joining this forum is to improve both identifying letters on sight, and also learning some Hebrew. That being said, I have a buddy of mine who has create...

Re: Zoar

Hi Jim, I like you definition of small village for Zoar. I was reviewing Phoenician city names recently and came across another possibility. The old name for the city of Tyre was Tzur - supposedly meaning "a rock" according to an author. Do you have any thoughts on this? Best Regards, Rich

Revisiting Shinar

I found an old post of Jim Stinehart's where he proposes a new location for Shinar. Instead of the traditional translation of Shinar as Sumer/Sumeria... he proposed Mt. Lebanon as the location. In this theory, Shinar becomes Semyra in the Levant. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sumur_(Levant) https://...
