Re: The letter vav

Sure thing, Karl! May take me a bit longer for that, as את is used quite a bit more than ובכול :)

Re: The letter vav

That's certainly very interesting about normal, every-day Hebrew now in Israel. Would that indicate a development in the language, or were the Masoretes showing a Tiberian-style Hebrew pronunciation of the letter before words beginning with bet, pey, mem or vav? I don't have time right now, but I'll...

Re: The letter vav

That assumes that the Masoretic vowel-pointing is correct in such cases. They have the kamats under כ in כָל for instance in that verse, indicating the vowel a , but the DSS show that כל was more pronounced kol , hence the DSS showing the plene as כול in numerous cases. Unfortunately, the only DSS w...

Re: The letter vav

When it means 'and', it's certainly a consonant (Ve/We). The waw/vav is, like other Hebrew letters (yod, aleph, ayin, hey), a mix of a consonant and a vowel; hence why vav/waw can be used as the consonant v/w, or the vowels 'o' or 'u'. When they say that Biblical Hebrew was written 'without vowels',...

Re: Unicode / XML Westminster Leningrad Codex - Server attacks

Hi Chris,

What on earth would someone have to gain from attacking the online WLC?

Seems somewhat pointless :/

Re: Bible verses, passages, quotes, or quotations?

Sounds to me like the BS is being somewhat overtly pedantic with that, Kenneth. Or snobbish. Whichever you prefer.

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?
