Re: cn I relly red wtht a vwl?

Ancient Hebrew has spaces between the words.
DSS even has extra space between the verses.

Re: translation of Daniel 9:26

Thanks Rolf,
You are translating the hiphil of ‎ גבר as "let prevail" instead of "cause to prevail".
Can that be supported by other hiphil examples in the Tanach?

Re: strange verb question

Thanks Isaac.
How do you get the meaning of "withold" from כלה, which means finish, vanish, fail, determined?
Also, why do you say יִכְלֶה = היא-כלה, since יִכְלֶה is masculine and היא means "she"?

Re: strange verb question

T We need, methinks, to be also careful of wishful textual embellishments about "exhortation", "emphasis", "desire", "intensity", and the like, based on uncommon "paragogic" word forms I completely agree, Isaac. In the case of Lev 21:5, MT ketiv dif...

Re: translation of Daniel 9:26

DANIEL 9: 27 He will let the covenant prevail for the many for one week, and in the middle of the week he will cause sacrifice and gift offering to cease. 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 ...

Re: strange verb question

Kenneth,
Lev 21:5 seems to be a mistake. SMP and DSS say יקרחו

Re: strange verb question

Hi Kenneth, This is a hard one for BibleWorks to search for. I searched for 3ms imperfect verbs, which gave about 4k verses. Then I searched the results for words that start with yod and end with hey. That gives 1082 verses. (unfortunately BW does not let me limit the search to just the words that m...

Re: Can We Trust the Bible?

Yes, I’m a “young-earth creationist” because that’s what the Bible teaches. That's an interpretation of Gen 1. Mankind is 6k-8k years old depending on whether you use the MT or LXX chronology. I understand it that the Bible Chronology goes back to Gen 1:3, when God said, Let there be light, which b...
