Re: גְּזֵלָה GZELAH, Lev. 5:23 (6:4)

It is possible that גֶזֶל is גֶדֶל also in the sense of 'strong-arm act' performed by the large and threatening, גדול , against the weaker. Indeed, in Ps. 35:10 we find מַצִּיל עָנִי מֵחָזָק מִמֶּנּוּ וְעָנִי וְאֶבְיוֹן מִגֹּזְלוֹ NIV: "You rescue the poor from those too strong for them, the po...

Re: קְרָסִים QRASIYM and קְרָשִים QRA$IYM, Ex. 35:11
