Re: Genesis 2:6 and the aspects

Dear friends, Genesis 2:5 was recently discussed. I follow up with the next verse, looking at the aspects. My translation is: But a mist was ascending (יַֽעֲלֶ֣ה) from the earth, and it watered (וְהִשְׁקָ֖ה) the whole surface of the ground." The reason for the yiqtol is that a word is precedin...

Re: Psalm 139:13

In answer to your two questions: 1) The verb תסכני cannot come from סכן because it lacks a double nun that it would need if from סכן. I checked DSS and found a spelling indicating that the word comes from סוך. Thanks very much, Karl. You are right. Thanks also for looking it up in the DSS. I think ...

Re: the word "thigh"

Thanks Isaac.

Kenneth,
You may have been looking at Num 5:22 which just says thigh without the pronoun suffix.

Anyway, your post helped me. I had made my own translation and song out of Ps 45, and had "Your thigh" in v3. I just now corrected it to "the thigh".

Re: Ps 139:4

"...And the verse starts with ki. While looking at Allen's Word Biblical Commentary (vol. 3) on verse 13 of this psalm, I came across an interesting comment concerning the use of כּי at the beginning of that verse. Allen notes that one of the uses of כּי is as an affirmative particle: "In...

Re: Targum Onqelos on Genesis 2:5

Michael, I don't think the tree or shrub is a matter of cultivated or uncultivated, but where they grew. At this time there were only plants along the fountain that watered the whole land mass. There were no plants in the field because there was not yet rain nor man. Either one, rain falling on the ...

Re: the word "thigh"

Kenneth,
Ps 45:3(4) and Ezek 21:12 say just "thigh".
Num 5:21 says "your thigh" because of the extra cof.

Re: Ps 139:4

"Before" isn't there either. And the verse starts with ki.

Re: Ps 139:4

Isaac,
The word "false" is not there in the Hebrew.
Also, How could David say to God in a good conscience that there is not even 1 false word upon my tongue?
Can you find another verse with a meaning like that?

Re: Ps 139:4

2. Your question whether it’s permissible to add “but” in verse 4 raises issues of translation theory or philosophy, matters strictly speaking beyond the scope of this forum. A traditional division of translation types is word for word versus dynamic. In my view each type has its own purpose. I use...
