Re: chapter divisions of WLC and BHS

Thanks Kirk, I thought so re WLC's chapter divisions. A theory with the BHS is perhaps the 1525 Bomberg was so widespread that the chapter divisions it used were seen as the chapter divisions of the hebrew bible.. over the years, in synagogues they also had those divisions inherited from the choice ...

Re: chapter divisions of WLC and BHS

@Jemoh i'm very familiar with that link but it does not either of my questions. For example that link states that the BHS got its chapter divisions from the 1525 bomberg, and it states the 1525 bomberg's source for those divisions. But that doesn't address my question of why the BHS chose to use the...

chapter divisions of WLC and BHS

Hi

Any idea why the BHS chose the chapter divisions of the 1525 Bomberg bible, with Joel having 4 chapters and Malachi having 3 chapters?

And did the WLC choose those chapter divisions because the BHS has those chapter divisions?

Thanks

Is BBH wrong in describing yashav as strong in the paal perfect?

Is BBH wrong in describing yashav as strong in the paal perfect? In Basics of Biblical Hebrew p142, chapter 13 Paal Perfect strong verbs He lists yashav as being strong. I know that yashav in the paal perfect follows the same pattern as strong verbs but is he correct or incorrect to describe yashav ...

Re: Imperfect and Participle for Present Tense

In Biblical Hebrew, the Imperfect aspect is used when the action has not been completed, despite the tense. But the participle has been used to present tense, though not restricted to that. Can someone please help me understand when the imperfect tense and participle would be used to represent pres...

Re: Biblical Hebrew Immersion

It's good for hebrew reading but what's missing is there's no effort to understand what you're saying. If I sit in a biblical hebrew class i'm way ahead on reading but on understanding words, we are all at the same level, knowing the vocabulary that the book uses. By the way I often heard people say...
