Re: Primitive roots

I studied the Septuagint alongside the MT and did a word by word comparison and that how i noticed how seemingly similar they are, word and grammar. This sentence proves that you didn’t study the MT. The grammars are very different—koiné Greek’s verbs are conjugated according to tense, Biblical Heb...

Re: Primitive roots

Dear Lee McGee: There’s a person who posts more messages on this list than do I, yet when I look and see that he’s the author of a post, I ignore and skip over that post without reading it. If he starts a thread, I refuse to open that thread. That’s why I never answer his posts, because I no longer ...

Re: Primitive roots

I'd been following this thread with some confusion about the relevance of equating BH words with Greek words. I was uncertain whether or not my lack of clarity about the discussion was the result of a failure to understand some underlying issue. If there is some underlying issue, it would be helpfu...

Re: Primitive roots

I have studied the Strong's Concordance of Hebrew and it treats compounds words as primitive roots.…Lee Mcgee Dear Lee: This is a variation on what linguists call “the etymological fallacy”. Just because a word can be derived from another, doesn’t mean that it carries the same meaning. In Indo-Euro...

Where is "lord" plural referring to a singular human master?

Genesis 42:30, 33
Isaiah 19:4
and many more.

Compare to Proverbs 30:10 where “lord” is singular referring to a human master.

Re: "If" and "If not"

From the original question, I understood it as: If A, then B Where B is the logical and necessary result of A. In that construction, the Hebrew אם is followed by a waw followed by the conclusion. However, in Biblical Hebrew, אם is used in constructs other than the above. It is used in a compound lex...

Re: "If" and "If not"

Genesis 28:20-22 basically says a vow "if this and that, then (and) this will happen." In this quote, the word "then" is actually "and." I am curious if Biblical Hebrew always uses "and" or some word for "then", when it has a quote that says "i...

Re: Formation of Imperfect Waw Consecutive

I … recommend getting a copy of Gesenius' Hebrew Grammar from somewhere, especially if in your first year of study on Hebrew :) I spent some time looking at parts of Gesenius’ Hebrew Grammar. I recommend against getting involved with Gesenius’ Hebrew Grammar, especially for beginning students: 1) i...

Re: Was Seir a city?

Karl, Isn't Zion a city, a mountain, and a people? Or what would you say Zion is? Without making a complete analysis of every mention of Zion (over 100 mentions) in Tanakh, my seat-of-the-pants reaction is that Zion properly was just a portion of Jerusalem, namely a fortress. (David’s palace was bu...

Re: Genesis 1.1

I think there's more theological significance as the plurality is confirmed 3 times in verse 26 of the same chapter - and the Elohim said 'let us make ha adm in our image and in our likeness. In this verse the plurality is indicated by a different word—“our”. Repetition by the writer is a literary ...
