Re: To Kirk Lowery


Thank you for your kind appreciation. And you all are very welcome.

It is a labor of love for me. I take great satisfaction in providing a place -- no matter how imperfect -- for the public to discuss the Hebrew Bible and interact with others of diverse opinion.

Subforum for teaching & learning Hebrew (pedagogy)?

Well, I’m one of those who does relate to Hebrew as a real language (and I look forward to contributing to your new Hebrew Café site.).

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.

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: 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 ...
