Genesis 49:12 translation

Does Genesis 49:12 say "eyes are red (dark) from wine (more than wine)" or "a redness (darkness) of eyes is from (is more than) wine?" Does it say "teeth (plural) are white (singular) from milk" or "more than milk"? Or does it say "a whiteness of teeth is...

The word כלה

The word כלה means "all" I think in a lot of quotes, but not "all of her" like it looks like it should mean. What exactly do you think it means in quotes like Ezekiel 20:40 and Jeremiah 8:10? Is it "all" or "everyone" or "all of her"? Why isn't the w...

Re: the word "thigh"

Steve and Isaac,

This is kind of embarrassing. Every book translated them all as "your thigh", even without the second kof, but I didn't notice Numbers 5:21 had a second kof. Wow. All I had to do was look more carefully. Thank you for pointing out the obvious detail that I missed.

Isaac,

Is the word ירך "thigh " or "your thigh" in Psalm 45:3 or 4,in Ezekiel 21:12, and in Numbers 5:21?

refining metals in ancient Near East

I was trying to read about how metals like gold and silver were refined in the ancient Near East. If someone understand this subject, I would like to know if they used something called potash or potassium nitrate as part of the process to do this. If you answer me, please answer like you were explai...

Re: Genesis 1.1

Karl, About Numbers 22:31, it only says he bowed to the angel, and many people bowed to other people in the Bible and it didn't have to mean "worship." I can't list lots of quotes with examples right now. Also, honestly, I am not sure that I understand some of your arguments about the diff...

Re: Genesis 1.1

Steve, I can't answer you right now, but in case I can in the near future, I need to know when you think the Bible says the angels were created, if it actually tells that someplace. Each quote you pointed out is complicated in different ways, and I know that I would have to deal with many details fo...

Re: Genesis 1.1

Karl, In Numbers 6:24-26, G-d is telling the priests a prayer to say to the people, so it just sounds like He is talking about someone else. In Isaiah 48:12-16, I think G-d talks about Himself and then Isaiah says G-d is sending him and G-d's spirit which is usually on prophets. The angel of G-d is ...

Jackal or dragon?

In Isaiah 34:13 the word תנים (a plural word) means "jackals" or "dragons" or what? The word in Genesis 1:21 is spelled תנין for some reason. I think this is a singular word, although in Genesis 1:21, it is in the plural form. Are these two different words? Does it mean "jac...
