תַזְרִיעַ TAZRIYA, Lev. 12:2

We read there אִשָּׁה כִּי תַזְרִיעַ וְיָלְדָה זָכָר with תַזְרִיעַ = אתה-זר-היא-ע containing the pair of personal pronouns אתה-היא referring to the couple of actors participating in the act זרע , 'sow, scatter seed', resulting, בשעה טובה ובמזל טוב , in the birth of a healthy boy. But who are they? ...

Re: קְרָסִים QRASIYM and קְרָשִים QRA$IYM, Ex. 35:11

From the kindred root גרט GRT we have the derived post-biblical word גְּרוּטָאָה, 'shard, wreck, scrap-iron, debris, detritus, junk', namely, כרוּתאה or גרוּדאה, 'worthless scrape off', often said today about a decrepit car.

Re: קְרָסִים QRASIYM and קְרָשִים QRA$IYM, Ex. 35:11

To קרס and קרש we add קרץ , 'slit, curve", as in proverbs 6:13 קֹרֵץ בְּעֵינָו מֹלֵל בְּרַגְלָו מֹרֶה בְּאֶצְבְּעֹתָיו NIV: "who winks maliciously with his eye, signals with his feet and motions with his fingers" and in Job 33:6 מֵחֹמֶר קֹרַצְתִּי גַם אָנִי NIV: "I too am a piece...

Re: בְּלִיָּעַל BLIYA'AL, Deut. 13:14

The just mentioned עֵגֶל EGEL, 'calf', is from the root עגל , 'bend, curve up, arch, be tall, be big', as a bent arc rises above its flat or straight position. From this root we have also the מַעְגָּל = מה-עגל , 'that which is curved', as in 1Sam. 26:5 וְשָׁאוּל שֹׁכֵב בַּמַּעְגָּל וְהָעָם חֹנִים סְ...

In Ex. 32:4 we read וַיַּעֲשֵׂהוּ עֵגֶל מַסֵּכָה וַיֹּאמְרוּ אֵלֶּה אֱלֹהֶיךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל NIV: "and made it into an idol cast in the shape of a calf, fashioning it with a tool. Then they said, These are your gods Israel" What prompted them to insist on the shape of a calf? Is it because of ...

I am recalling also the name עֲדִיאֵל = עד-היא-אל of 2Ch. 4:36. And also the name יְשִׂימִאֵל = ישים-היא-אל of the same verse.
