Re: וְהִתְוִ֨יתָ in Ezekiel 9.4

We have a distinct form for the third person singular present subjunctive - 'I insist that he leave now' etc.

Re: וְהִתְוִ֨יתָ in Ezekiel 9.4

Hi Karl, I didn't understand Qatal and Yiqtol as indicating tense per se, but I did understand them as indicating aspect. I am using Davidson's Analytical Lexicon, and have been converting his 'preterite' and 'future' into 'perfect' and 'imperfect', which is what my grammars call the conjugations, e...

Re: וְהִתְוִ֨יתָ in Ezekiel 9.4

Hi Sébastien, Thanks a lot, that makes sense. I have now found in Driver, Hebrew tenses, 118: ... the perfect, when attached to a preceding verb by means of this waw consecutive, loses its individuality: no longer maintaining an independent position, it passes under the sway of the verb to which it ...

וְהִתְוִ֨יתָ in Ezekiel 9.4

וַיֹּ֤אמֶר יְהוָה֙ אֵלֹו עֲבֹר֙ בְּתֹ֣וךְ הָעִ֔יר בְּתֹ֖וךְ יְרֽוּשָׁלִָ֑ם וְהִתְוִ֨יתָ תָּ֜ו עַל־מִצְחֹ֣ות הָאֲנָשִׁ֗ים הַנֶּֽאֱנָחִים֙ וְהַנֶּ֣אֱנָקִ֔ים עַ֚ל כָּל־הַתֹּ֣ועֵבֹ֔ות הַֽנַּעֲשֹׂ֖ות בְּתֹוכָֽהּ׃ Ezekiel 9.4. וְהִתְוִ֨יתָ is, I believe, Hifil perfect, 2nd person masculine singular. It's...

Re: אֶ֥ת without a maqqef in Psalm 47.5(4)

Thanks, Jonathan, that makes sense now I realise that this is meaning 'I', and that the merkha is, as I understand it, effectively substituting for the maqqef as in Psalm 47.5.

Re: אֶ֥ת without a maqqef in Psalm 47.5(4)

Thanks very much indeed, Kirk, that's most helpful. I am afraid I have been rather filtering out the accents while trying to learn other things. Shades of Wenham (NT Greek), perhaps, but also Page Kelley's Grammar, which I have made a start with. I have now looked up his table of accents at the back...

אֶ֥ת without a maqqef in Psalm 47.5(4)

Psalm 47.5(4): יִבְחַר־לָ֥נוּ אֶת־נַחֲלָתֵ֑נוּ אֶ֥ת גְּאֹ֨ון יַעֲקֹ֖ב אֲשֶׁר־אָהֵ֣ב סֶֽלָה׃ He chooses (/will choose etc) our inheritance - אֶ֥ת - the pride of Jacob, whom he loved. According to Delitzsch here, אֶ֥ת with a segol and without a maqqef only appears three times in the scriptures. He say...
