Re: אלומה ALUMAH, Gen. 37:7

I would add the commonly used, post-biblical, אַלִּים = אל-היא-ם ALIYM, 'violent', and אַלִּימוּת =אלים-הוּא-את ALIYMUT, 'violence'.

אלומה ALUMAH, Gen. 37:7

We read there וְהִנֵּה אֲנַחְנוּ מְאַלְּמִים אֲלֻמִּים בְּתוֹךְ הַשָּׂדֶה וְהִנֵּה קָמָה אֲלֻמָּתִי וְגַם נִצָּבָה וְהִנֵּה תְסֻבֶּינָה אֲלֻמֹּתֵיכֶם וַתִּשְׁתַּחֲוֶיןָ לַאֲלֻמָּתִי KJV: "For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, be...

‎ישׂראל Israel, Gen. 35:10

We read there ‎וַיֹּאמֶר לוֹ אֱלֹהִים שִׁמְךָ יַעֲקֹב לֹא יִקָּרֵא שִׁמְךָ עוֹד יַעֲקֹב כִּי אִם יִשְׂרָאֵל יִהְיֶה שְׁמֶךָ וַיִּקְרָא אֶת שְׁמוֹ יִשְׂרָאֵל I tend to think now that ‎יִשְׂרָאֵל = איש-שׂר-אל so that with איש he became connected with his father יצחק , his uncle ישׁמעאל and his brother...

Re: 1 Kings 19, 12

Today I encountered Obadiah 1:16 ‎וְשָׁתוּ וְלָעוּ וְהָיוּ כְּלוֹא הָיוּ NIV: "they will drink and drink and be as if they had never been." KJV: "yea, they shall drink, and they shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not been." So, will they be something (some-t...

Yes, indeed, the sound קול trailing off to thin silence דממה דקה.

Re: 1 Kings 19, 12

I would translate קוֹל דְּמָמָה דַקָּה as 'a sound of zero (null) volume.'

Re: בְּרֻדִּים BRUDIYM Gen. 31:10

By following the more distant relatives of the kindred root pair ברד-פרד we observe the typical diffusion of a pervading and permeating elemental idea into an ever wider circle of root clans, here by the agency of the uniliteral root R signaling multiplicity. Consider ברד, גרד, זרד, חרד, טרד, ירד, מ...

בְּרֻדִּים BRUDIYM Gen. 31:10

We read there וְהִנֵּה הָעַתֻּדִים הָעֹלִים עַל הַצֹּאן עֲקֻדִּים נְקֻדִּים וּבְרֻדִּים NIV: "the male goats mating with the flock were streaked, speckled or spotted." KJV: "and, behold, the rams which leaped upon the cattle were ringstraked, speckled, and grisled." with בְּרֻדִּ...

Re: Jeremiah 25:9

Here is more about חצר XACER (related to חדר XEDER, 'room') Isaiah 42:11 חֲצֵרִים תֵּשֵׁב קֵדָר KJV: "the villages that Kedar doth inhabit" Nehemiah 12:29 כִּי חֲצֵרִים בָּנוּ לָהֶם הַמְשֹׁרֲרִים סְבִיבוֹת יְרוּשָׁלִָם KJV: "for the singers had builded them villages round about Jerusa...

Re: Jeremiah 25:9

Appears to me that this חדר is but a variant to the Hebrew חצר of which חָצֵר XACER, (not directly related to חציר XACIYR, 'hay'), 'yard, courtyard, farm'. Compare German "Hof". See Joshua 19:7-8 עַיִן רִמּוֹן וָעֶתֶר וְעָשָׁן עָרִים אַרְבַּע וְחַצְרֵיהֶן וְכָל הַחֲצֵרִים אֲשֶׁר סְבִיבוֹת ...
