Re: Subforums (Discussion)

Excellent suggestions, Jason. I would add a Hebrew composition practice subforum. I am sure there are others besides me who would like such practice with an opportunity for feedback and correction.

Re: The fallacy of "prophetic perfect"

As Jason noted, Rolf, this isn't B-Translation. While translation can be helpful, first and formost we should focus on comprehending the Hebrew. How do these perfects, prophetic or whatever, function in the context of the Hebrew sentences, paragraphs, and chapters where they appear? What information...

Yes, Kirk, I think these types of subforums would be very useful.

Jason Hare wrote: Where are those here who relate to Hebrew as a real language? Well said, Jason, including your remarks about the unhelpfulness of etymological speculations in actually learning Biblical Hebrew (or any other language).

Re: public domain novice Hebrew reader?

And Mark, if you'd like to practice with BH in PMs or emails, I would be happy to help. Others are better at it than me, but I enjoy the practice. Interactive typing chat with Google Hangouts is also an option. I do that in Koine Greek with a fellow B-Greeker about once a month, and it's fun. He's b...

Hi Jason,

Thanks for the tip and the link about the Chrestomathies. I downloaded two just now, and look forward to test driving them.

Re: public domain novice Hebrew reader?

To follow up on my evaluation of Hebrew New Testaments in the previous post, I should emphasize that I have virtually no knowledge of Modern Hebrew. Just a couple of greetings and the odd word here and there. (I hope to spend more time learning MH soon, as I do with Modern Greek one day.) Despite th...

Re: public domain novice Hebrew reader?

שלום מרקוס! השלום לך Glad to see you’re still with us at B-Hebrew, and that you’re still learning Biblical Hebrew! 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 avail...

Re: Questions about Ashkenazi Hebrew pronunciation

The folks at http://www.chabad.org are also willing to answer this kind of question by email. I asked them one a little while back and a very helpful person there got back in touch in a couple of days. Leave a message under the "Ask the Rabbi" section.

Re: Is this analysis of Isaiah 9:6 a legitimate one?

Returning for a moment to the question of whether "name" can be used with multiple names, it may be helpful to compare Isa. 8:1-3. There Isaiah is instructed to write on a scroll before witnesses מַהֵ֥ר שָׁלָ֖ל חָ֥שׁ בַּֽז , Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz (NIV 2011). So Isaiah makes love to his wif...
