2 Kings 4:7

Post by Kenneth Greifer »

2 Kings 4:7וַתָּבֹא וַתַּגֵּד לְאִישׁ הָאֱלֹהִים וַיֹּאמֶר לְכִי מִכְרִי אֶת־הַשֶּׁמֶן וְשַׁלְּמִי אֶת־נשיכי נִשְׁיֵךְ וְאַתְּ בניכי וּבָנַיִךְ תִחְיִי בַּנּוֹתָר׃ פ

Then she came and told the man of God. And he said: 'Go, sell the oil, and pay thy debt, and live thou and thy sons of the rest.'

Are there any other words that are like "your sons (your children)" in this quote. I mean with the same ending for "your" 'כ''?

I understand the word נשיכי also has it, but I mean in other quotes in the Hebrew Bible.

Hi Kenneth,
Just looking in 1Sam - 2Kings & Isa, the only other occurrences are in 2Kings, right near your verse:
4:2 לְכִי
4:3 your neighbors
Sincerely yours,

First of all, I would like to thank both of you, Steve and David. Secondly, I would like to say to David. Thank you for looking words up, but I need to see quote numbers and/or English translations, so I can understand better.

Sorry, I thought you just put it in a website concordance or in a software, and you'll see it right away.

I'll do that later.
For now, if it is helpful, I can just say that all of the words are from Psalms, except for the last word which is from Jer.

I will try that now. I found some in Psalm 103:3 and 103:4. That's good enough for me to see that it is used in other quotes besides 2 Kings 4:3 and 4:7.

David, how were you able to do the search? I looked for כי* in BibleWorks, but it returns a lot of other words which weren't a 2ms suffix, so I limited my search to a few books.

Doesn't 2Ki 4:2 also meet your criteria? ‎ לְכִי would normally be ‎ לָ֖ךְ

Yes.
I didn't write it because you already did.
