Re: Job 40:19b behemoth

It seems to me Karl that "sword" carries the same idea as "desolation". "Demise" might be a nice translation option. But my point is the idea of a sword works fine for me. I think it's a hunting reference and it serves well as a parallel to the "hook" of Levia...

Re: strange verb question

Genesis 23:6 יִכְלֶ֥ה is a jussive, let not a single one of us withhold his tomb. It's an oath/promise.

Re: Prov 30:3

For the record the LXX actually reads closer to my translation The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the counsel of saints is understanding: The Targum reads word for word like Hebrew, שֵׁירוּי דְחָכְמְתָא דְחַלְתֵּיהּ דֶאֱלָהָא וִידִיעֲתָא דְקַדִישֵׁי בְיוּנָא: The reference is eithe...

Re: Prov 30:3

I like that Karl. I would also add that I think the second phrase, וְדַ֖עַת קְדֹשִׁ֣ים אֵדָֽע, is referring to holy beings, that is what holy beings know.

I haven't learned wisdom that I should know what the holy ones know.

Re: Is this analysis of Isaiah 9:6 a legitimate one?

The JPS translators are certainly not trinitarian. Their translation supports the traditional view. JPS 9:5 For a child is born unto us, A son is given unto us; And the government is upon his shoulder; And his name is called Pele-joez-el-gibbor-Abi-ad-sar-shalom; Notice also they treat all the names...

Re: is yashku really a hiphil imperfect? I see no yud or hirik!

Well the first thing I noticed is the hey is not apocopated. So it is behaving like a strong verb. Most likely an older form preserved in Job because it's poetry. That's just of the to of my head. I'll look into this now a little closer.

Re: is yashku really a hiphil imperfect? I see no yud or hirik!

Yes the Pathak in the prefix is the tell. It's a weak verb (Final hey) that's why there's no hirik. The causative is not only common, it fits the context. Notice Jacob removes the stone and Waters the docks himself. וַיִּגַּ֣שׁ יַעֲקֹ֗ב וַיָּ֤גֶל אֶת־הָאֶ֙בֶן֙ מֵעַל֙ פִּ֣י הַבְּאֵ֔ר וַיַּ֕שְׁקְ אֶת־...

Re: Genesis 2:6 and the aspects

I built this chart showing how Moses uses the same macro-structure in both creation accounts.

Re: Hard to explain question about a verb ending

Also I noticed footnote 4. It is, however, a question whether, instead of a connecting syllable, we should not assume a special verbal form, analogous to the Arabic energetic mood (see l, at the end) and probably also appearing in the Hebrew cohortative (see the footnote on §48c).—As M. Lambert has ...
