Re: Looking for a particular type of synonymous parallelism (Zech. 9.9 as exemplar)

Isa 13:12 - (I think it refers to 2 men.)
Ps 8:4 - (I think enosh refers to mankind, and ben-adam to man individually)
Num 27:21
Ps 80:14-15

Re: virgin

Steve, You can't assume that every word's meaning is based on the meaning of it's root. Words develop and change over time. The word "automobile" I guess means "self moving" or something like that and auto is self, but now "auto" means "car." An auto parts st...

Re: virgin

‎ להעלים means to coverup, to conceal, to hide under a rise. It is a paramount principle of Hebrew Etymology; there is no understanding of Hebrew without realizing this cardinal tenet of the language, namely, that there need be no "horizontal" relationship of meaning between different wor...

Re: virgin

Isaac, עלם is used 30 times in Tanach meaning hidden. i.e. Lev 5:2-4; 20:4 In the 2 uses of the male noun form: 1Sam 17:55-56,58 the emphasis is that no one knows who this guy is who is going to fight Goliath. He is unknown. 1Sam 20:20-22 the emphasis is that the young man does not know what is goin...

Hi David, welcome to B-Hebrew. You are supposed to sign your posts with your first and last names, which you can do easily by putting them in your signature. This is a fairly common mistake made by some translators... They see מן (from) prefixed to על (upon) and assume that the semantic nuance of מע...

Re: virgin

Contra to popular (theological) opinion, and as you yourself have shown by your examples, בתולה didn't just mean "virgin", but could also just be used to refer to a "young woman of marriageable age" or "young damsel". So the Genesis account of Rebekah and her virginity...

Re: virgin

I know בְתוּלָה is normally translated “virgin” but I wanted to look at how one would understand it just by looking at the context. Some passages seem to be emphasizing the youth of the בְתוּלָה. For example: Deut 32:25 מִחוּץ֙ תְּשַׁכֶּל־חֶ֔רֶב וּמֵחֲדָרִ֖ים אֵימָ֑ה גַּם־בָּחוּר֙ גַּם־בְּתוּלָ֔ה י...

Squee,
We say zayin, alef and daled.
Your links do not seem to correspond to your questions.

Re: Ashkenazi Hebrew transliteration question

Squee,
I don't understand your question.
The 2nd link is not about Hebrew vowels, but about Chaldean or Aramaic.

Also,
Forum rules are that you need to sign with your first and last names.
You can do this most easily by adding it to your signature. Then it will automatically be there.
