Re: Is the usage of מוֹצָאָה as "origins" extant outside of Micah 5:2?

Thanks. I do see the connection, but I believe you are confirming that, no, it is not extant as "origin", is that correct? I am inclined by context to read it "sorties" or "battles". The LXX has EXODUS, which generally refers to an "exit" but I believe is also...

Re: Is the usage of מוֹצָאָה as "origins" extant outside of Micah 5:2?

Thanks, I thought that might be the case.

My own thought is that given the "military worthiness" in the context that perhaps it refers to the Messiah's "campaigns" or "sorties" or "battles" being predetermined before the foundation of the world.

Is the usage of מוֹצָאָה as "origins" extant outside of Micah 5:2?

Is the usage of מוֹצָאָה as "origins" extant outside of Micah 5:2? The Lexicons show it as: "origin" But the only example they show is Micah 5:2. Some translations have "whose comings forth" or "whose goings forth" but other have "origin". LXX render...

In Isaiah 9:6 "no end of the increase"?

Is Isaiah saying that the reign of the messiah is always adding subjects ("of his increase there will be no end" ) or "no limit", as in "the wind blows wherever it wants - so are those born of the wind"? Unending increase of subjects? Or "not limited by borders&quo...

Did Paul read Zech 14:9 as "all in all"? If so, how?

I've been searching for the background of 1 Corinthians 15:28 where Paul says: [1Co 15:28 KJV] 28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all . My prime suspect is Zechariah 14:9: Zechari...

Re: Is this analysis of Isaiah 9:6 a legitimate one?

I also note this note from the NET Bible: 15 tn The Hebrew perfect (translated “has been born” and “has been given”) is used here as the prophet takes a rhetorical stance in the future. See the note at 9:1. 16 tn Or “and dominion was on his shoulders and he called his name.” The prefixed verbs with ...

Re: Is this analysis of Isaiah 9:6 a legitimate one?

Thanks Jonathon. For completeness I note that the LXX has: Lexham English Septuagint Isaiah 9:6 *Because a child was born to us; a son was given to us whose leadership came upon his shoulder; and his name is called “Messenger of the Great Council,” for I will bring peace upon the rulers and health t...

Re: Is this analysis of Isaiah 9:6 a legitimate one?

Okay, thanks for supplying your reasoning. It sounds as though the author may have overstated his case but he does seem to make a case that it might be so, no?

Re: Is Job 24:1 about scheduling or overlooking?

Okay, so does this capture the sense:

“Why are opportunities to be heard in court not set aside by the Almighty?
And why do those who know Him never get their day [in court]?"
