Re: Isa 59:20 compared to Rom 11:26

Speaking of Paul, I think it is fair to assume he had access to the Hebrew, and being the finest rabbinic mind of the day, knew it quite well. If the Greek is to be trusted as that which Paul dictated, then I would have no problem with the idea that Paul agreed with the LXX reading, and believed th...

Re: אֶ֥ת without a maqqef in Psalm 47.5(4)

Psalm 47.5(4): and Proverbs 3.12: כִּ֤י אֶ֥ת אֲשֶׁ֣ר יֶאֱהַ֣ב יְהוָ֣ה יֹוכִ֑יחַ וּ֝כְאָ֗ב אֶת־בֵּ֥ן יִרְצֶֽה׃ For whom the LORD loves etc where אֶ֥ת doesn't have an obvious English equivalent. Does it perhaps serve to connect the LORD with the one whom He loves? Thanks very much for your help with ...

Re: Isa 59:20 compared to Rom 11:26

Great Isaiah Scroll has: ובא אל ציון גואל ולשבי פשע ביעקוב נואם יהוה Which bar the plene spellings, and the use of אל instead of ל , is practically the same as the MT. Checking the Hexapla for any alternative Greek renditions (Theo, Aquil, Sym), we have: A: ... καί τοῖς ἀναστρέψασιν ἀθεσίαν εν Ἰακώ...

This will take many of us time to digest, and possibly several reads, but I think it will result in a rich dialogue. http://www.jhsonline.org/Articles/article_155.pdf Here's an excerpt from the author's opening words: The goal of this paper is to provide a new definition of a Biblical Hebrew (BH) ve...

Re: Noun derivations from roots—patterns

• Qal participle: with the meanings of actor or the action (gerund). Is a participle ever used as a verb in Hebrew? 1 Sam 16:1, מִמְּלֹ֖ךְ עַל־ יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל , from reigning over Israel. (see Job 34:30) 2 Kings 11:3, וַעֲתַלְיָ֖ה מֹלֶ֥כֶת עַל־ הָאָֽרֶץ . This one has a final tav (compare Exodus 22:2,...

Re: sabbath in Exodus 31:13 and Ezekiel 20:20

Maybe the prophet himself was inconsistent in his spelling. After all there was no royal academy that standardized the BH when these men were penning down what they received from God.

Re: שלום in Jeremiah 4:10

Karl, Using your example of כבד which is a stative in Qal, I then did an electronic search for the Hiphil form. It is found in nine verses as a verb. Two of those verse are repeats of other verses, so we have seven unique uses. In each of those uses, the Hiphil denotes a change in status, therefore ...
