Re: Qatal vs Wayyiqtol in Judges 18:17

Isaac wrote: "The "qatals" in verse 17 בא-הוּא = בָּאוּ ,לָקְחוּ =לקח-הוּא is obviously stylistic device used to avoid a repeated WA." So my question is why would the author want to avoid repeated wayyiqtols HERE, in this text (Judges 18:17)? Repeated wayyiqtols are very common i...

Re: Qatal vs Wayyiqtol in Judges 18:17

Time to go digging in some caves for that extra line of text! :)
So none of these verses show up in the DSS? Josh 3:16 isn't there either? I don't have access to the DSS.

Re: Qatal vs Wayyiqtol in Judges 18:17

Isaac, I honestly don't follow what you're trying to say in either of your two posts above.

Do you have any thoughts on how we should read these qatals differently than the wayyiqtols that precede them?

Re: Qatal vs Wayyiqtol in Judges 18:17

I found one more, Joshua 3:16. וַיַּעַמְד֡וּ הַמַּיִם֩ הַיֹּרְדִ֙ים מִלְמַ֜עְלָה קָ֣מוּ נֵד־אֶחָ֗ד As with the others (except for Judges 18:17 where the LXX has a participle for the qatal) the LXX makes no distinction between the wayyiqtol and the qatal translating them all with aorist indicative ve...

Re: Qatal vs Wayyiqtol in Judges 18:17

I found 7 other examples of wayyiqtol followed by qatal in non-direct speech where the qatal is neither a we-qatal nor an X-qatal. I've coloured the relevant bits below to make it easier to read. Joshua 11:12 וְֽאֶת־כָּל־עָרֵ֣י הַמְּלָכִֽים־הָ֠אֵלֶּה וְֽאֶת־כָּל־מַלְכֵיהֶ֞ם לָכַ֧ד יְהוֹשֻׁ֛עַ וַיַּכ...

Qatal vs Wayyiqtol in Judges 18:17

What is the significance of the 2 qatals in Judges 18:17? The verse starts with a wayyiqtol placing this in the common historical narrative discourse genre, i.e. the narrator recounting to us the reader some events that happened in the past. Then it’s followed by 2 phrases each starting with a qatal...
