Which is the best rendering of Gen 25:27b?

וְיַעֲקֹב אִישׁ תָּם

1. LXX: Ἰακὼβ δὲ ἄνθρωπος ἄπλαστος.
2. Graecus Venetus: ἰακῶβος δ' ἀνὴρ τέλειος.
3. Tanakh Ram: וְיַעֲקֹב הָיָה אִישׁ יָשָׁר


If you put a gun to my head, I say number 3.

Re: נְבֵלָה וּטְרֵפָה NEBELAH UTREPAH, Lev. 17:15

As I see it, the existence of the uniliteral root ר R in טרף implies that the root refers to a fractured material state. Hi, Isaac: Supporting your idea is the ρ in LXX Gen 37:33 θηρίον ἥ ρ πασεν τὸν Ἰωσηφ. cf the Graecus Venetus, which picks up the טָרֹף טֹרַף יוֹסֵף with τῷ ἁ ρ πάζεσθαι ἥ ρ πακτα...

Daniel, I think you have "buried the lead" here.

Re: Hebrew Word for Romans 12:1,2

Yes, Kirk, I was trying to be funny. I was really responding to your earlier post Mark, The New Testament, even in Hebrew, is rarely a subject within B-Hebrew's charter. but I see that I have misunderstood both of your comments, and I am glad to know that the Hebrew New Testament is not a banned top...

Re: Hebrew Word for Romans 12:1,2

I'm naming my worship song album based on Romans 12:1 and (2). Our life itself being a worship, Living sacrifice and the likes. I'm looking for a single Hebrew word to sum this up. Delitzsch, Salkinson-Ginsburg, and BSI all have קָרְבָּן חַי for θυσία ζῶσα in 12:1b. ...B-Hebrew's charter is primari...

Re: "Bethuel": "Daughtered by God"

Although this would be the only use in Hebrew of “daughter” as a verb... Hi, Jim, If your theory is correct, בָּתָה is what Genenius would call an "unused root." It's just that some roots are more unused than others. Your theory hinges on what this putative verb would have meant in the pa...

Re: who is doing what to whom? Lev. 12:2

Notice the affinity of the roots זרע , of which we have ZERA זֶרָע , 'seed', and צרע , of which we have the CARAAT צָרָעַת , 'leprosy?', of Lev. 13:2...Think also of the צרעה CIRAH, 'wasp, hornet, insect' of Ex. 23:28. Not to forget the dialectical אֶדְרָע of Ezra 4:23, whereby the arm is STRETCHED...

Re: Hebrew verb theories

Can anyone give me 5 examples where qatal is not past tense and where yiqtol is not future or present? Of course, exclude vav conversive. Also do not include prophesies, which are often given in the prophetic past. Thanks. I'm writing an article on the conjugations in the beginning of 1 Samuel. Her...

Re: Psalm 109:4 B

Observation. I. The nominal (substantival) predicate is used in Hebrew in a rather broad sense(). As predicate we find: 1) The noun for the material from which something is made: Ez 41.22 הַמִּזְבֵּחַ עֵץ the altar (was of) wood (cf. § 131a, d); Ps 115.4 עֲצַבֵּיהֶם כֶּ֫סֶף וְזָהָב their idols are ...
