אֵזוֹב EZOB, 'hyssop', Ex. 12:22

I believe I have already commented on the fact that the root זב ZB, and its various variants are common in the names of plants and animals. Here: אֵזוֹב EZOB, 'hyssop', as in Ex. 12:22 עֵשֶׂב ESEB, 'grass', as in Gen. 1:11 מִסְפּוֹא MISPO, 'fodder, as in Gen. 24:25 סוּף SUP, 'reeds', as in Ex. 2:3 ס...

Re: Is waw Consecutive (wayyiqtol) perfective or imperfective?

Seems to me that הִגִּיד = היא-ג-היא-ד HIGIYD it tainted by the confrontational flavor of נֶגֶד, NEGED, 'opposite, against'. See Gen. 3:11
וַיֹּאמֶר מִי הִגִּיד לְךָ כִּי עֵירֹם אָתָּה
KJV: " And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked?"

Notice also the לְהַגִּיד, "to tell", at the end of the verse.

Re: testing Isaac Fried's Etymological theories

Related is the root ברר BRR, 'select, distinguish, clarify', as in Isaiah 49:2 וַיָּשֶׂם פִּי כְּחֶרֶב חַדָּה בְּצֵל יָדוֹ הֶחְבִּיאָנִי וַיְשִׂימֵנִי לְחֵץ בָּרוּר בְּאַשְׁפָּתוֹ הִסְתִּירָנִי in which בְּאַשְׁפָּתוֹ is בְּאַסְפָּתוֹ , 'a quiver to collect in it arrows', and in Zephaniah 3:9 כִּי א...

See, for instance, Job 1:16 עוֹד זֶה מְדַבֵּר וְזֶה בָּא וַיֹּאמַר אֵשׁ אֱלֹהִים נָפְלָה מִן-הַשָּׁמַיִם וַתִּבְעַר בַּצֹּאן וּבַנְּעָרִים וַתֹּאכְלֵם וָאִמָּלְטָה רַק-אֲנִי לְבַדִּי לְהַגִּיד לָךְ KJV: "While he was yet speaking , there came also another, and said , The fire of God is fallen f...

Re: testing Isaac Fried's Etymological theories

Two fascinating examples to the revealing effect of the uniliteral root R in the Hebrew root are: ראה RAH, 'see, discern, perceive, recognize', namely, differentiate and detail the various distinguishing features within the field of view. The variant רעה , 'herd', refers to cattle or sheep moving fr...

On our recent visit to Israel, while driving from Haifa to Tel Aviv along the western side of mount Carmel we were suddenly caught in a heavy downpour. גֶשֶם זִלְעָפוֹת GE$EM ZILAPOT exclaimed my wife. Upon returning home, just two hours prior to the "Bomb Cyclone" dumping more than a foot...
