Re: Does the word התש exist?

Does the word התש exist? According to my dictionary, it is a verb that means "to weaken." I tried to look it up, but I can't find it. Thanks. I looked up in my dictionary, and it’s not there. ;-) I also didn’t find it in an electronic search of Tanakh. Tanakh contains only a subset of the...

Re: Book on the Tetragram

1) When NT was written, 'adonai was not yet used as a substitute for yhwh, so the writers had no antecedent for writing kyrios. What evidence do you have for this claim? What evidence is there that there was no oral tradition, one that the NT writers made explicit in writing? Here you turn the situ...

Re: Book on the Tetragram

The oldest NT manuscripts with passages with the divine name are dated to the end of the second century CE. These manuscripts contain nomina sacra ks and ths . I have never seen any scholar claim that ks and ths and other nomina sacra were written in the NT autographs. Just to be completely sure, w...

Re: Book on the Tetragram

Dear list-members, … PART THREE Did the Tetragram Occur in the New Testament Autographs? The chapter begins with the following words: “The argument is almost universal: ‘Any claim that the NT originally contained yhwh must be rejected, because no Greek manuscript contains that name.’ This argument ...

Re: Patterns of noun derivation

I meant an example of where a feminine form of a noun represents an abstract concept. There are many such examples. To list just a few, some starting with aleph, we have in a list with the masculine referring to a physical, concrete object, the feminine to an abstraction: ‎אביון needy (person), אבי...

Re: Patterns of noun derivation

§ Feminization of a masculine noun, by the addition of a Heh suffix, there are three patterns that I’ve noticed: • sex, differentiation of male and female of persons and animals • concrete (person, object, place) changed to an abstract (idea, action) • single or individual person or object, changed...

Re: Naso (Numbers 4.2, first word)

What is the verb form of the first word of Numbers 4.2, naso? נָשֹׂ֗א Chris Kimball West Redding, CT USA I have no idea what the Masoretic points stand for. Seeing as they are demonstrably wrong often enough, I tend to ignore them. Context, on the other hand, indicates that this is an imperative ve...

Patterns of noun derivation

Dear All: Noun derivations from verbs (as well as other nouns and adjectives). “Nouns are derived from verbal roots.” That is a very common belief for Biblical Hebrew. But I am one of the first to say “Not all.” There are many nouns for which no verbal roots have survived, nor even evidence that the...

Re: a modal yiqtol in Gen 2:6a?

I have another question. The way English works, you cannot say If this were the old days, politicians took open bribes. You have to use some form of a modal verbal. (If this were the old days, politicians would be taking open bribes) In Hebrew, could you use a perfect here? That is, does a qatal ev...

Re: a modal yiqtol in Gen 2:6a?

Why is the verb ‎ יַֽעֲלֶ֣ה here imperfect and not perfect? The question that started this thread, as I understand it, is if the Yiqtol indicates a modality, which modality would it be? Back when I studied Hebrew in college, the question was; did the different conjugations indicate tense (as in Wei...
