Re: virgin

Steve,
I commented after speed reading or kind of skimming things that were written before. I am sorry that I didn't read more carefully before commenting. I kind of didn't read everything, so that was wrong.

Re: virgin

Steve, I was looking at your explanation for "naar" which I thought was just guessing because I don't see any connection and you were giving some possible connections between the verb and the noun form of "naar." I think that "bachur" and "betula" could be bas...

Re: virgin

Steve, You can't assume that every word's meaning is based on the meaning of it's root. Words develop and change over time. The word "automobile" I guess means "self moving" or something like that and auto is self, but now "auto" means "car." An auto parts sto...

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,
Do you think it says "thigh" or "your thigh"?

the word "thigh"

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...
