Re: Job 40:19b behemoth

Saro Fedele says in Akkadian there was a swapping between 'kaph' and 'koph'. There is no need להרחיק נדוֹד to "Akkadian" for this. There are plenty of examples in Hebrew for ג-ה-ח-כ-ק "interchanges" made to slightly shift the meaning of a new root. Still, the root, or act, כרב e...

Re: Job 40:19b behemoth

Saro Fedele writes
that 'hheth' and 'kaph' were (sometimes) swapped each other
