Re: Is this the way to study grammar?

Chavoux: Karl, I would say the best (not necessarily the correct) way to study grammar, is first of all to learn the language itself until you can express yourself comfortably in the language (and understand it as well). Then you are in the position to start deducing "laws of grammar" that...

Re: Some Fun with Biblical Hebrew for Real Communication

Dear Pere: Did you not forget, Karl, one, two, maybe three question marks (?) in this text? (I'm aware that there are no question marks [?] in the Hebrew text of the Tanakh) Pere Porta You answered your own question. If that had been English, or modern Hebrew, there would have been three question ma...

Re: Some Fun with Biblical Hebrew for Real Communication

I have an idea for a thread which may be an enjoyable way of practicing using biblical Hebrew in "real" contexts. לי שאלה קטנה הידעת את אשר תשאל ממנו . כי לא היום דברים יהודית מנעורהם ונשמע מהם לדעת היטיב . אם תשאל ממנו לכתב ספרים, לא נוכלו, כי לא נלמד היטיב . מי זה היוכל ללמדנו אם כן ולא...

Re: Ps 8:3 (MT): Because of the wailing?

Sebastian: Apart from this: This is just endless. Karl isn't bent on disregarding his own interpretation even only for as long as it would need to seriously appreciating the tenability of another interpretation, and I'd be prepared to go on for as long as it would need to get another (and more compe...

Re: Ps 8:3 (MT): Because of the wailing?

Sebastian: I´m really sorry if this is starting to get annoying. It´s just, I found this interpretation and now have to evaluate whether it is tenable or not. Yesterday I learned that this is also the interpretation of Schnieringer, who wrote one of the most important books on Ps 8 in the last few y...

Re: Ps 8:3 (MT): Because of the wailing?

Sebastian: I learned from this question as well. I found the question intriguing, therefore did research to find out how it could be interpreted. I looked up all the occurrences of עז and realized that there are some cases where it refers to an utterance, and in context an utterance of praise or som...

Re: Ps 8:3 (MT): Because of the wailing?

Sebastian: I tried to ask: "[Assuming that עֹז means "bulwark" in Ps 8:3], You can’t make that assumption. When there are homographs in Biblical Hebrew (we don’t know if they were homonyms, the vowels weren’t preserved), we have to consider each of the words as possible, and consider ...

Re: וְעַל כְּנַף שִׁקּוּצִים in Daniel 9:27c

Dear Karl 1. With regard to the subject of 9:27, נָגִיד in v. 27 is most naturally understood as being the same as מָשִׁיחַ נָגִיד of v. 25, not two different individuals as some interpret. I apply both to the Christ. How do you read? Different people, because if each unit of a seven stands for a y...

Re: Ps 8:3 (MT): Because of the wailing?

Sebastian:

“Wailing” is the opposite of “praise”, so how does wailing connect with praise?

Secondly the context indicates that praise comes from the mouth of children.
