I have studied the Strong's Concordance of Hebrew and it treats compounds words as primitive roots.…Lee Mcgee Dear Lee: This is a variation on what linguists call “the etymological fallacy”. Just because a word can be derived from another, doesn’t mean that it carries the same meaning. In Indo-Euro...
Where is "lord" plural referring to a singular human master?
Genesis 39:2–3, 7–8, 16, 19–20
Genesis 40:1, 7
Genesis 42:30, 33
and many more.
Compare to Proverbs 30:10 where “lord” is singular referring to a human master.

From the original question, I understood it as: If A, then B Where B is the logical and necessary result of A. In that construction, the Hebrew אם is followed by a waw followed by the conclusion. However, in Biblical Hebrew, אם is used in constructs other than the above. It is used in a compound lex...
Genesis 28:20-22 basically says a vow "if this and that, then (and) this will happen." In this quote, the word "then" is actually "and." I am curious if Biblical Hebrew always uses "and" or some word for "then", when it has a quote that says "i...

I … recommend getting a copy of Gesenius' Hebrew Grammar from somewhere, especially if in your first year of study on Hebrew :) I spent some time looking at parts of Gesenius’ Hebrew Grammar. I recommend against getting involved with Gesenius’ Hebrew Grammar, especially for beginning students: 1) i...
Karl, Isn't Zion a city, a mountain, and a people? Or what would you say Zion is? Without making a complete analysis of every mention of Zion (over 100 mentions) in Tanakh, my seat-of-the-pants reaction is that Zion properly was just a portion of Jerusalem, namely a fortress. (David’s palace was bu...
I think there's more theological significance as the plurality is confirmed 3 times in verse 26 of the same chapter - and the Elohim said 'let us make ha adm in our image and in our likeness. In this verse the plurality is indicated by a different word—“our”. Repetition by the writer is a literary ...
I read that Seir was a mountain range, a land, a people, and maybe a region of Edom. I am not sure about the last one. Was Seir a city? Would it be wrong to call it a city? If it was a city, was it the capital of Edom? Just look at its uses as a name: • apparently the name of a person and his desce...
In the beginning the Elohim created the heavens and the earth - why is Elohim plural but 'created' singular? The singular verb is easy, in that ancient Israel was monotheistic, as long as they obeyed Torah. I’ve heard a few reasons for the plural of Elohim: Probably the one that makes most sense is...

Does the word התש exist? According to my dictionary, it is a verb that means "to weaken." I tried to look it up, but I can't find it. Thanks. I looked up in my dictionary, and it’s not there. ;-) I also didn’t find it in an electronic search of Tanakh. Tanakh contains only a subset of the...
