Re: In Isaiah 9:6 "no end of the increase"?

William, there are folk on this forum with a much better grasp of Hebrew than I have. But I see nothing that would suggests this passage is saying "that the messianic assembly continues to grow numerically forever thru the gospel". It seems to be speaking of an increase of power, etc. As f...

Re: Psalm 139:13

Lee, partly out of curiosity I looked at the last two passages you refer to. The Odysseus passage (22.422) does not use ἔργα to translate weaving. The reference to weaving occurs in the next line, εἴριά τε ξαίνειν καὶ δουλοσύνην ἀνέχεσθαι, which gives specificity to the generic reference to ἔργα in ...

Re: The word כלה

Ken, כלה in Jeremiah 8:10 and in at least some of the Jeremiah passages cited by S Walch are the kethib readings, with a feminine singular suffix. But there is a qere reading in those Jeremiah passages; they have a masculine (not feminine) singular suffix. This explains why many English translations...

Re: Deuteronomy 33:12 יְדִ֣יד

Michael, according HALOT in Bibleworks, there are several other occurences of the word, including Psalms 60:7 and 108:7. Interestingly, two of the other occurences listed in HALOT are in Isaiah 5:1, where in one case the word is spelt as what you described as a variant (my computer is temporarily un...

Re: Number word pair forms

Hi Christina, Welcome to the B-Hebrew forum. Since no one else has jumped in, I'll provide my thoughts even though I'm still not much more than a beginner myself. I'm curious which textbook you're using. I'd not heard the expression "word pair form" previously – although I've now googled i...

Re: Psalm 139:13

For the record, in the thread on verse 4 of this psalm, I've posted a comment about the use of כִּֽי at the beginning of both verse 13 and 4: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1039&e=1&view=unread#unread .

Re: Ps 139:4

"...And the verse starts with ki. While looking at Allen's Word Biblical Commentary (vol. 3) on verse 13 of this psalm, I came across an interesting comment concerning the use of כּי at the beginning of that verse. Allen notes that one of the uses of כּי is as an affirmative particle: "In...

Re: Ps 139:4

Steve, I have a few comments in response to your questions. 1. In my view כִּ֤י simply introduces an explanation/reason/example for the last clause in verse 3. 2. Your question whether it’s permissible to add “but” in verse 4 raises issues of translation theory or philosophy, matters strictly speaki...
