Re: "If" and "If not"

Karl,
Aren't Gen 18:3 & 23:8 "if A then B" cases without the waw conjunction?

Re: Genesis 1.1

Thanks Karl! I didn't know that.
You are right, that makes the plural of elohim not significant as far as God being triune.

Re: Adam and Eve

Existence, Welcome to the forum. A rule of the forum is that you sign your posts with your first and last name. The easiest way to do that is to put it into your signature so it is done once for all. ha-adm means "the man". adm or Adam would be a transliteration of the name Adam as in Gen ...

Re: "If" and "If not"

Re: "If" and "If not"

Kenneth and Karl, The "and" following "if" in BH seems to be optional. Gen 13:16 has no "and", but it does have "also". Gen 18:3, 21; 20:7; 23:8,13 have no "and". I looked as far as Gen 24. Also, when the order is inverted as in Gen 18:28,30 there is...

Re: Active and passive forms of verbs

Hi Kenneth,
I use a verb table program called Saffa. I understand that it has all conjugations of all BH verbs whether that form appears in the text or not.
If there is a particular verb you are interested in, I can tell you what Saffa has for the passive forms.
