Re: Should we create a [syr] tag?

Also looks good both on Windows 7 running Chrome (work computer) and Mac OS X 10.11 running Safari on MacBookPro (home). The text with the tag is easier on my eyes, too. My eyes aren't quite as young as Jason's (will be age 62 in January and wear bifocals), so the bigger size is welcome. ;)

Re: Should we create a [syr] tag?

I will start learning Syriac soon, so I think a [syr] tag would be helpful. For those like me who are new to the script though, it would be helpful if users included some transliteration along with the Syriac, or a transcription in square script along with individual words/phrases.

Re: Hebrew bible versification

One type of "discrepancy" that occurs is in the Psalms, where the Psalm titles in Hebrew texts (omitted in some translations) are usually counted as the first verse. When they are used in translations, often the first group of lines following is counted as verse 1 instead. And some Psalm c...

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

Participles in Hebrew, just as in ancient Greek, are verb-noun hybrids that often function as nouns, and so are also noun-like in form. So yes, a participle can be in construct. See Gesenius-Kautsch-Cowley part II, section 50 for more info.

Re: Basic declarative sentence

For those of you who were on this list a few years ago, I had a discussion concerning what is the basic structure of a simple, present action, indicative, declarative sentence spoken in prose Biblical Hebrew. The other person in the discussion claimed that it is the same as in modern Israeli Hebrew...

Re: Introducing Dewayne Dulaney (talmid56)

I failed to mention earlier (probably because my brain was tired) that I became certified to teach Spanish on the K-12 levels in Arkansas and taught it for 5 1/2 years during the period from 2002 to 2010. I also taught high school and middle school English for 1 1/2 years, and Exploratory Latin for ...

Re: Introducing Dewayne Dulaney (talmid56)

Thank you, Chris. Looking forward to your posts as well. As it happens, I am of Irish descent on my father's side. Would enjoy discussing Irish geneology and family in a PM sometime.

Hope you enjoy B-Hebrew.

Introducing Dewayne Dulaney (talmid56)

When B-Hebrew changed to the web forum format, members from the former list were requested to re-introduce themselves. I am finally getting around to doing that now. I am an American, born in 1956 and raised in north Louisiana, in Monroe and West Monroe, towns on the Ouachita River. My parents were ...

Re: Hebrew Word for Romans 12:1,2

Kirk and Yigal, you make good points. Although there was no ancient written Hebrew NT, there is good reason to believe that some of the oral teaching that later became part of tthe NT was first given in Hebrew, as Buth, Penner, and Notley have shown. Granted, probably closer to Mishnaic than Biblica...
