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...

The word "together"

Is there a reason why the word "together" is written two different ways: יחד or יחדו?

Re: Hard to explain question about a verb ending

Karl,

I saw it somewhere once, but I don't know where. I was hoping you or someone else on B-Hebrew would know more about this. I thought maybe it was just a freak occurrence in that one quote.

Hard to explain question about a verb ending

I know that people don't like you to say "future tense" about Biblical Hebrew, but this is the only way I know how to ask this question. I read a quote somewhere, but I am not sure where it was,and it had a future tense verb with the ending נה for "her" or "it" (the obj...

Re: Genesis 18:3 "from upon"

I just realized that Exodus 18:13 says the people "stood on" Moses, so I guess "on" can mean next to also, so "from upon" מעל can mean "from next to" in Genesis 18:3.

Genesis 18:3 "from upon"

Abraham said to G-d not to go away "from upon Your servant" in Genesis 18:3. Is "from upon" unusual in this quote? Do people go "from upon " other people or does it mean that He could have been seeing G-d in a vision besides seeing the angels?

Re: "If" and "If not"

Steve, I don't think the Genesis 31:50 example is good because the "then" part of the quote is not really a result of the "if" part of the quote. I don't know how they would say that grammatically, but I hope you understand what I mean. Exodus 9:2-3 and Exodus 15:26 are really go...

Re: "If" and "If not"

Steve, I am not sure if this matters, but maybe I was looking at quotes that had lists of things after "if", like "if this and this and this, then (and) this would happen." The quotes you mentioned seemed to be "if this, then this." I am just guessing about why this mig...

"If" and "If not"

Genesis 28:20-22 basically says a vow "if this and that, then (and) this will happen." In this quote, the word "then" is actually "and." I am curious if Biblical Hebrew always uses "and" or some word for "then", when it has a quote that says "if...

Re: Was Seir a city?

Karl,

Isn't Zion a city, a mountain, and a people? Or what would you say Zion is?
