Re: ספירת העומר the counting of the OMER

I'd agree with the Sadducees on that one. Reading through Leviticus 23, not once does it refer to the first day of Unleavened bread (=15th) as some 'shabbat'. Though it does use the same wording as given for the Sabbath ( כל מלאכת עבדה לא תעשו = you shall not do any regular work), there is no mentio...

Re: ספירת העומר the counting of the OMER

I've always understood the reference to הַשַּׁבָּת , in both the Leviticus verses above, as a direct reference to the Sabbath day that will occur during the festival of Unleavened Bread week (now more just Passover week), hence Firstfruits will always be the first Sunday during the same week, and We...

Re: Does this word exist?

Ste = Stephen.

English, though technically Greek (= Στεφανος) :)

Re: Does this word exist?

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/וי

It's Aramaic (so not Hebrew).

I wonder whether it's the Aramaic equivalent of the Hebrew אוֹי?

Re: Formation of Imperfect Waw Consecutive

From Gesenius §49c: Dageš forte is always omitted in the preformative יְ ‎, in accordance with §20m. I just read your introduction (welcome!), so will go ahead and recommend getting a copy of Gesenius' Hebrew Grammar from somewhere, especially if in your first year of study on Hebrew :) I.e.: https:...

Re: Syntax of Genesis 3:5

FWIW, the Septuagint also translates the verb as future-tense:

ᾔδει γὰρ ὁ θεὸς ὅτι ἐν ᾗ ἂν ἡμὲρᾳ φάγησθε ἀπʼ αὐτοῦ, διανοιχθήσονται ὑμῶν οἱ ὀφθαλμοί, καὶ ἔσεσθε ὡς θεοί, γινώσκοντες καλὸν καὶ πονηρόν.

"...and you shall exist like gods..." etc.

Re: Psalm 139:12

Deuteronomy 32:2 comes to mind (ESV):

May my teaching drop as the rain,
my speech distill as the dew,
like gentle rain upon the tender grass,
and like showers upon the herb.

Both as + like = Hebrew כ, same as in Psalm 139:2

Re: When was yhwh replaced by 'adonai?

Hi Rolf, I'm just going to pick on a few of things you've said in this quote, and the rest in a further posting when I have time. It is true that Jesus is called ks. But in the two quotations from Isaiah in Romans 9:28 (Isaiah 10:23) and 9: 29 (Isaiah 1:9), the reference of ks is clearly to yhwh. In...

Re: When was yhwh replaced by 'adonai?

This is very interesting, esp. the wikipedia link, where it says the early manuscripts used a nomen sacrum for the word Spirit, when it referred to the Holy Spirit, and left it alone when it referred t to the human spirit. But the later manuscripts used the nomen sacrum for all occurrences of the w...

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 ...
