Re: Genesis 1.1

Karl,

Re: Genesis 18:3 "from upon"

על has the meaning of being a burden on.
In Gen 18:3, Abraham tells the Lord that Abraham wants to give him hospitality, which is a burden Abraham wants to bear.

In Exo 18:13 The people stood as a burden upon Moses from morning until evening.

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.

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"

Thanks Kenneth. Yes, I meant 2Kings 20:19. (I should have gotten my reading glasses.) Here are some compound if's, some with "and" as "then" and some not: Gen 31:50; Exo 9:2-3; 15:26 compound if, no "and" as "then" Gen 43:9; Exo 4:8-9 compound if with "an...
