Re: Is waw Consecutive (wayyiqtol) perfective or imperfective?

Karl and Rolf, Thanks very much for answering. Dan 9:27 starts with a waw-consecutive. Is it correct to say that the action in v27 takes place after the action in the previous verse?: 9:27 ... ‎ וְהִגְבִּ֥יר בְּרִ֛ית לָרַבִּ֖ים שָׁב֣וּעַ אֶחָ֑ד And he shall cause a covenant to prevail for 1 week ......

Re: When was the book of Daniel written?

Thanks Jason. Where in the Tanach did Jeremiah prophesy about the rebuilding of the city? It doesn't say "rebuild the city" in those words, but it says: Jeremiah 29:10 כִּֽי־כֹה֙ אָמַ֣ר יַהְוֶ֔ה כִּ֠י לְפִ֞י מְלֹ֧את לְבָבֶ֛ל שִׁבְעִ֥ים שָׁנָ֖ה אֶפְקֹ֣ד אֶתְכֶ֑ם וַהֲקִֽמֹתִ֤י עֲלֵיכֶם֙ אֶת...

Re: When was the book of Daniel written?

Then I misunderstood. Who is the messiah nagid? Well, I didn't say that I don't think that it's referring to Cyrus. I just didn't mention that before. דבר is a reference to the word of prophecy through Jeremiah regarding the rebuilding of the city. The count actually starts before Cryus, and Cyrus ...

Re: When was the book of Daniel written?

You both agree that the word to return Jerusalem and build it was 490 years before Masada. But Jason says this word was 49 years before Cyrus and Karl to something very different. I do not know what word Jason is referring to, so that is why I brought this up for the 2nd time. I don't think I menti...

Re: When was the book of Daniel written?

Why not 490 years before the fall of Masada, just as the prophesy says? I'm with you on this. It seems pretty obvious. Jason You both agree that the word to return Jerusalem and build it was 490 years before Masada. But Jason says this word was 49 years before Cyrus and Karl to something very diffe...

Re: When was the book of Daniel written?

The text does not say "From the issuing of the command to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until an anointed one, a prince arrives, there will be a period of seven weeks and sixty-two weeks." That is simply absurd. Who counts like that? It says: From the going-out of a word to rebuild Jerusa...

Re: When was the book of Daniel written?

Steve, How can you, apparently by divine fiat, simply declare that the JPS is wrong in that verse in Zechariah 9:9? Is it because you use the NT to determine what is translated corrected in the Hebrew Bible? MP: Whatever is written in the NT overrides all Hebrew language usage. mP: Matthew says the...

Re: 1 Kings 19, 12

Hi Sebastien, I think the 2 choices in meaning you are suggesting are: 1)a voice followed by thin silence or 2) a voice which is thin silence please correct me if I have wrongly understood. choice 2) does not make sense, so for this choice, it would be better to translate the last 2 words as "f...

Re: When was the book of Daniel written?

In Hebrew that is true almost always only for long numbers, like “one thousand and two hundred and fifty and five” or turned around, where the “and” puts numbers over what would be zeros. Here there are no zeros. Remind me if there are any exceptions to what I just said. Can you give me an example ...
