Re: translation of Daniel 9:26

Steve Miller wrote: Rolf, Your translation says that the leader will let the covenant prevail for 1 week rather than confirm a convenant for 1 week. How can he let the covenant to prevail for 1 week, but in the middle of the week he breaks the covenant? Then he did not let the covenant prevail for ...

Re: public domain novice Hebrew reader?

I’m going to slightly disagree with Karl about the value of Hebrew translations of the New Testament, then address your main question. There are a number of Hebrew New Testaments available, only two of which I’ve used, so I’ll confine my comments to those. They are Delitzsch and the Bible Society i...

Re: Can We Trust the Bible?

How do you explain that there are no dinosaurs around, yet they once covered the earth? If they were alive at the same time as man, then they would have been on the ark. Who says that there are no dinosaurs around today? There are many historical references made to what we today call dinosaurs, as ...

Re: public domain novice Hebrew reader?

I want to know if there is a biblical Hebrew reader for beginner or those who just finished his basics introductory grammar? and I prefer a classic or public domain that is free (and also the one that consist of made up sentences of stories that mimic the narratives of OT) The problem is, whose Heb...

Re: cn I relly red wtht a vwl?

my question is, if I keep ignoring the vowel points, while trying to assimilate the consonant (which is itself not an easy task to read a deaf sentence, id est without a vowel), will it do harm for my understanding of the language in the long run? how important is the actual vowel point, which is f...

Re: Amateur researcher's alternative textual criticism of the Hebrew Bible

I have spent many years doing my own textual criticism of difficult Hebrew Bible quotes and then self-publishing my ideas in little books. I put a lot of my ideas in two new versions of my books that can be read for free on my internet site, if anyone is interested. I especially like to divide the ...

Re: Typing Hebrew & Greek in Unicode

Unicode is the default text enter system on all major platforms—Mac, Windows™ and Linux—for a long time. It was a free installation on Mac OS9 and standard on all Macs since. It’s been a standard on Linux since I first used it. And it’s standard on Windows™ 10. I choose the standard Greek keyboard a...

Re: Prov 30:3

Steve, there’s a fourth option, namely that the waw should be translated with a “that”. This is not common, but is found, most famously in Isaiah 53:2 “…he doesn’t have the looks that we should desire specifically him.” So we get in Proverbs 30:3 “I didn’t learn wisdom that I should know the knowled...

Re: Names of Places

Thanks for all your responses. Karl in regards to your responses: Not likely, seeing as only one of his sons had descendants that survived the flood. It’s more likely that there was another person after the flood whose name was קין whose descendants were named after him. I am surprised at how dogma...
