Re: 1 Kings 19, 12

Hi Jason,

thanks for your answer. And sorry for the typo, you are completely right, this is "daqqâ".

Thanks again to all.

Re: 1 Kings 19, 12

Hofal with Peh-Guttural verbs

Dear all, Is it possible that in Hofal with Peh-guttural verbs we have qamets hatuf in the letter He in הָעֳמַד but qamets in the letter He in הָעָמְדוּ? Or are they both qamets hatuf?

Re: וְהִתְוִ֨יתָ in Ezekiel 9.4

Hi Andrew, you are right, it is a Hifil 2nd person masculine singular. However it is not qatal but weqatal. The weqatal is built with the qatal form preceded by "we" ( וְ ). It can have several meanings: - consecutive: it then often takes the same value as the preceding verb or indicates t...

Re: Raphe and dagesh in the same letter

Hi Kirk,

thank you very much for the explanation and your advice on Emanuel Tov.

I will read more about it in the next couple of days.

Greetings

Raphe and dagesh in the same letter

Dear all, could someone help me understand why in the following words we have at the same time both a raphe and a dagesh in the Tav letters: לֹא תִּֿרְצָח לֹא תִּֿנְאָף Source: Exodus 20, 13 from the BHS. A raphe is supposed to have the opposite meaning of the dagesh (lene or forte) or the mappiq. S...
