Re: Psalm 139:20 Masoretic text

I don't see any real difference between them. Basically the first part I would translate

who plot against you

Or

who speak to you with an ulterior motive

Re: Psalm 139:12

I agree with you Kirk. I like your translation. Ken, this is probably idiomatic you Hebrew. But there is a parallel in English:

Like father like son.

If you run it through Kirk's phrasing you get

as the father (is) so the son

That's what the two ka's are about

Re: ‎ בַּחֲמִשָּׁ֖ה (Gen. 18:28 et al)

It's hard to tell if the /a/ in /ba/ is due to a back consonant or because it's definite. The context here send to demand a definite. The rule is that ב takes the vowel of the following t'nua chatufa. I think the masora takes this to be definite, and that's why they added the metheg

Re: 1 Kings 19, 12

Since Simon and Garfunkel weren't around back then, I don't think sound of silence quite does. It seems obvious to me the he heard a "voice" and that it was a whisper of a voice at that. The context is that God has come to speak with his man. So I don't see in this instance that it's a &qu...

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

The words mood, modality, and modal are perfect examples of how speakers give meaning to forms based on context. Yes Indicative is a mood. One might ask what is the modality of a verb form, and find out it is indicative. But when a linguist says a verb is modal she means it is not indicative. This ...

Re: When was the book of Daniel written?

"after the 62 weeks" does not necessarily mean "totally after" in human language. I find something perhaps alarming in this. When you say "in human language" are you disqualifying Hebrew as a "human language"? I'm not sure if that's what you mean. Maybe you'r...

Re: When was the book of Daniel written?

I tend to agree with Steve on the division of the 70 weeks. I think the text supports this. The NET Bible has what I think a very decent rendering of this passage. 24 “Seventy weeks have been determined concerning your people and your holy city to put an end to rebellion, to bring sin to completion,...
