Re: Psalm 139:20 Masoretic text

BHS and Stone Tanach reads same as what Kirk posted for Leningrad Codex. The Schottenstein Edition of Tehillim pub by Mesorah Publications, Ltd reads ימרוך and נשוא . DSS 11QPsA reads יא̇מרוך̇ and נש̇א̇ו . BHS footnotes also mentions: 1 frt ונשאו cf Vrs prb 1 c mlt Mss עדיך ; prp עליך Can someone he...

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

See, for instance, Job 1:16 עוֹד זֶה מְדַבֵּר וְזֶה בָּא וַיֹּאמַר אֵשׁ אֱלֹהִים נָפְלָה מִן-הַשָּׁמַיִם וַתִּבְעַר בַּצֹּאן וּבַנְּעָרִים וַתֹּאכְלֵם וָאִמָּלְטָה רַק-אֲנִי לְבַדִּי לְהַגִּיד לָךְ KJV: "While he was yet speaking , there came also another, and said , The fire of God is fallen ...

Re: When was yhwh replaced by 'adonai?

You mentioned that the earliest NT manuscripts that quote the OT, which are at the end of the 2nd century, used abbreviations for Theos and Kurios in place of YHWH. How many NT manuscripts and verses is this? Rolf is talking of the Nomina Sacra , which are evident in practically every single Greek ...

Re: When was yhwh replaced by 'adonai?

Dear Rolf, Could the evidence indicate that the LXX was changed to use kurios in place of yhwh after the NT was written, to align with the NT? You mentioned that the earliest NT manuscripts that quote the OT, which are at the end of the 2nd century, used abbreviations for Theos and Kurios in place o...

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

Isaac Fried wrote:The difference between דבר DABAR and אמר AMAR? Consider this, said on a speaker:
הוּא כבר מדבר שעה אבל עדיין לא אמר כלום

Isaac Fried, Boston University


That is pretty good, Isaac. Is there any hint of that differentiation of meaning in the Bible? Like maybe in Proverbs?

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

Dear Steve: My introduction to the teachings of the Plymouth Brethren was very negative, through a book written by a man who the New Testament says won’t enjoy eternity with God unless he repents (so far there’s no indication that he has repented) then published under another man’s name (somewhat d...

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

Seems to me that דיבר is 'spoke', and אמר is 'said'. ‎ דִּבֶּר is of the root דבר DBR, a stalwart member of the root family דבר, זבר, טבר, סבר, צבר, שבר, תבר טפר, ספר, צפר, שפר, תפר all having the concrete meaning of 'accumulate', as becoming a root that includes the uni-literal root ר R.

Re: When was the book of Daniel written?

Dear Steve, You wrote: Thanks Rolf, Yes, "70 years at Babylon" is much more definite than "70 years for Babylon", and makes more sense. "When 70 years are completed at Babylon, I will visit you" - Would not that mean that the 70 years start from Jeconiah's captivity in...

Re: is there any data file linking strongs numbers to each verse?

Hi Steve, can you share some of them with us who are a bit less knowledgable? Ok, a lot less knowledgable. Lamberson, I use BibleWorks and OnLine Bible. BibleWorks is about $300 and is well worth it. OnLine Bible is free. eSword seems to have replaced OnLine Bible as the more popular free tool. bib...

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

Dear Steve: It appears that you are struggling to preserve the teachings of a small English group known as the Plymouth Brethren and their rather nuanced view of prophesy—the rapture, the seven year tribulation, the millennium, after which the Ezekiel 38–39 war, after which the third temple: none, ...
