Re: Revisiting Shinar

Uh, gents, remember that B-Hebrew is about the Hebrew language, first and foremost. Discussions about the identity of geographical sites is more history/archaeology than translation, interpretation, grammar and hermeneutics.

Let's get back to the center of our charter.

Thanks!

Re: Can We Trust the Bible?

Jason, Our charter is summarized here: http://bhebrew.biblicalhumanities.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=3 . B-Hebrew is intended as a public forum, which means all types of faith commitments (and no faith commitment) will be found here. B-Hebrew is about the biblical language and texts, which includes ...

Re: Is the usage of מוֹצָאָה as "origins" extant outside of Micah 5:2?

Just a note that the verse in Hebrew is Micah 5:1. There is just one other place that this feminine noun occurs: 2 Kings 10:27. There it occurs as the qere for the ketiv ‎מַחֲרָאוֹת meaning cesspool . The lexicons suggest the ketiv is the original, with the qere , "places of going out to, i.e.,...

Re: Meaning of "Israel"

Okay, guys, this thread is wandering off of biblical Hebrew again. Let's end this discussion.

Typing Hebrew & Greek in Unicode

David Stark has an informative post about Unicode and the biblical languages, especially how to conveniently type Greek and Hebrew. In particular, he points to the keyboard drivers for Windows made freely available (you don't need to buy the Logos software): https://www.logos.com/product/53264/origi...

Re: Prov 30:3

No one else has commented on this, so I'll take a shot. All of the "standard" translations take ‎לֹֽא as applying to both halves of the verse. Syntax is different in poetry anytime, but especially in Semitic poetry with its parallelistic patterns. From an exegetical (interpretation) point ...

Re: Sodom and Gomorrah

Ok, this thread has wandered way off the subject of the Hebrew Bible and its language. B-Hebrew is not a forum for historical, ethnographic and archaeological topics, never mind about classical Greek. So I am locking this thread. Please focus your posts on the Hebrew Bible, its language, literature ...

Change in Forum Posting Rules

Friends, As you've noticed, the spammers have found yet another way to circumvent our forum's software protections. I am researching the problem, but it's going to take some time. In the meantime, I have set the forum to "fully moderated," that is, all posts from all members will be put in...

Re: Is this analysis of Isaiah 9:6 a legitimate one?

The quote is helpful. The issue with the Jewish interpreters, according to Hengstenberg, is changing the normal syntax/semantics of the verb. He ends up with the same conclusion I had. And, note carefully, he avoids the question of who the subject actually is! We can speculate that the verb should h...
