Re: Does the word התש exist?

Thank you, all of you, for looking those words up. I wonder why my dictionary has so many non-Biblical words listed as Biblical. Maybe the words were just labelled wrong.

Steve, that etymological dictionary sounds very useful and helpful. I wonder if a library where I live has that.

Re: Does the word התש exist?

My dictionary seems a little strange because it seems to list words that might not exist and it says they are Biblical.

Re: Does the word התש exist?

Kirk and Karl, I use the "Compendious Hebrew-English Dictionary" by Dvir Publishing Company. It's copyright date is written in Hebrew, so I am not sure what it says. It says it was compiled by Reuben Avinoam (Grossman) with H. Sachs and then revised and edited by M.H. Segal. I like it beca...

Does the word התש exist?

Does the word התש exist?
According to my dictionary, it is a verb that means "to weaken." I tried to look it up, but I can't find it.

Thanks.

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?
