The letter vav

I have read in a few books that Biblical Hebrew was written without vowels, but isn't the letter vav used as a vowel sometimes? When it means "and", is it a vowel or a consonant?

Re: The word מו

Karl,

I have seen מו used as a suffix and I have seen it used as part of a prefix like in כמו, but I have never seen it used as a prefix by itself. I thought my dictionary meant it was a prefix that was used by itself sometimes.

Re: The word מו

Steve,

Thank you for looking it up. I forgot my dictionary also says it is a variant of כמו "like."

The word מו

I see the word מו listed in my dictionary as something like "like". Does this word exist?

It says it is a variant of במו.

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

Karl, I am just curious. Do you think it is wrong to say "Hebrew Bible quotes" because a Bible scholar told me I was wrong to use the word "quotes"? I actually read an article that said that the word "quote" is considered to be slang and the word "quotation" i...

Bible verses, passages, quotes, or quotations?

I am just curious what is the difference if any between the words verses, passages, quotes, or quotations? For some reason, Bible quotes, as I like to say, are called verses or passages, but never quotes. Why not quotes?

Re: Does this word exist?

Thank you all for looking up the word. My dictionary usually has a symbol or something for Aramaic words. It has other words that I have looked up and they don't actually exist. I think one was the word ני nun yud which is says means "lamentation" or something. You don't have to look it up...

Does this word exist?

I have a Hebrew-English dictionary that has the word וי which is vav yud and it says it means "alas." Does this word actually exist in the Hebrew Bible?

Re: Psalm 139:20 Masoretic text

Karl, Thank you for your translations. I am not going to say you are wrong because I am still working on my own alternative translations, although I have some ideas already. I have decided not to give my wacky alternative translations here, except I'll say that I think this whole verse is messed up ...

Re: Psalm 139:20 Masoretic text

Karl,

If you have time, maybe you could put your own translations for the different versions. I can't imagine how you will translate יאמרך.
