Re: virgin

The root אלם is but a slight alteration of the root עלם . Derived from אלם are the אוּלָם ULAM, 'hall', of 1kings 6:3 וְהָאוּלָם עַל פְּנֵי הֵיכַל הַבַּיִת עֶשְׂרִים אַמָּה אָרְכּוֹ עַל פְּנֵי רֹחַב הַבָּיִת עֶשֶׂר בָּאַמָּה רָחְבּוֹ עַל-פְּנֵי הַבָּיִת NIV: "The portico at the front of the mai...

Re: virgin

There is actually one thing that the עלמה hides: her bones under the cover of growing flesh and skin.

Re: virgin

‎ להעלים means to coverup, to conceal, to hide under a rise. It is a paramount principle of Hebrew Etymology; there is no understanding of Hebrew without realizing this cardinal tenet of the language, namely, that there need be no "horizontal" relationship of meaning between different word...

Re: virgin

עלמה has nothing to conceal להעלים , and בתולה is not separated בדוּלה from no nothing. The root עלם consists of the union of the uniliteral root ל L of elevation and the uniliteral root מ M of massiveness; an almah is tall (L) and full of body (M). In what chronological age range a girl is conside...

Re: Psalm 139:13

In Job 40:22 יְסֻכֻּהוּ צֶאֱלִים צִלְלוֹ יְסֻבּוּהוּ עַרְבֵי נָחַל KJV: "The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about" יְסֻכֻּהוּ = היא-ס-הוּא-כ-הוּא-הוּא from the root סך is: 'will tower יִשְׂגוּ over him'. Similarly Ps. 91:4 בְּאֶבְרָתוֹ יָסֶךְ ...

Re: KJV - Bad tenses

In Gen. 25:19 we read
‎אַבְרָהָם הוֹלִיד אֶת יִצְחָקKJV: "Abraham begat Isaac"
Here הוֹלִיד ‫=‬ הוּא‫-‬ל‫-‬היא‫-‬ד is with two personal pronouns added to the act ילד, one for Abraham, and one for his son.

Re: KJV - Bad tenses

Seems to me that the difference between יוּלַד = י-הוּא-לד and נוֹלַד = נוֹ-לד is only in the position of the personal pronoun for the newly born within the act ילד . Gen. 6:1 וַיְהִי כִּי הֵחֵל הָאָדָם לָרֹב עַל פְּנֵי הָאֲדָמָה וּבָנוֹת יֻלְּדוּ לָהֶם KJV: "And it came to pass, when men began...

Re: KJV - Bad tenses

Seems to me that in Isaiah 9:5(6) 'Doing Wonders" is more befitting for פֶּלֶא יוֹעֵץ then "Wonderful Counsellor" since all these names are rather epithets for the everlasting ( אֲבִי-עַד = אב-היא-עד Compare אֲבִיהוּא = אב-היא-הוא of Ex. 6:23) God. Recall Ex. 15:11 מִי כָמֹכָה בָּאֵלִ...

Re: virgin

Lee, I am not sure as to what you mean by "cognates", but I notice that the letter ל L, Lamed, appears in every Hebrew word on your list, as well as in every Greek word on the foreign list. According to my understanding of the elemental makeup of the Hebrew language the letter L is a prima...
