The Lamsa bible translates Matthew 27:46 from the Aramaic as, "Eli, Eli, lemana shabakthani! My God, my God for this I was spared!" "For this was my destiny." It was a statement of victory and not a question.

I would like to connect the words שק נשק משק [שק] is translated as "sack cloth" in your English Bibles. However, I would like to propose that [שק] more akin to cheap fabrics used as undergarments such as loincloth. Therefore, [שק] is material/entity that is close/intimate to you out of convenience. Someone or something conveniently place in intimacy. ...

Generally names described their bearer in that time (and on many places today) . It was supposed to convey most important characteristic of a person. God's name 'Yahweh' mean 'I'm'. That define God is not bounded by time and exist outside of time. It also means he does not change. His declarations and promises are thus eternal. This is source of security ...

It's worth reading Gesenius's interpretation of מֶשֶׁק here. He identifies מֶשֶׁק (mesheq) with מֶשֶׁךְ (meshek - defined here) in its meaning of "possession." He views the unusual form of מֶשֶׁק, with a koph instead of a caph for the first letter, as a pun ("paronomasia") to go with with דַּמֶּשֶׂק (Dammeseq), "Damascus." Gesenius rejects the ...

The Idea in Brief The area in question appears to be in the frontal abdominal area directly below the sternum--i.e., the so-called "gut." Discussion The Babylonian Talmud indicates that the "fifth rib" was the junction point of the gall bladder and liver. b. Sanhedrin 6:4n (Folio 49A) F. He said to him, “Now if at exactly the fifth rib he had ...

EKG leads V1-V6 are ventricular - the 2 larger pumping chambers of the bottom portion of the heart - leads. Lead V5 is placed in the left 5th intercostal space between the 5th & 6th (below the 5th and above the sixth) ribs, and would be most ...

Yes, I believe we should assume that the ancient Hebrew year averaged out to 365.24 days, with some years of 354 days and some of 384 days. Although the Bible does not explicitly mention intercalation (an added month), it is inferred in the name meaning of the first month of Abib. Abib simply means "tender, green ears" and refers to the ripening of the ...

Dan's tribal boundaries (prior to their migration north) was on the southern coast. Their location was very suited to marine activity so it should not be surprising if boats made up a significant part of their economy. Attached is my map showing Dan's original allotment as described in the book of Joshua 19:40-48 Relevant to this question is the invasion ...

Does the Hebrew word “olam“ mean “forever”? Exodus 12:14 And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever. "for ever" = ‛ôlâm = aiōnios The Septuagint translates "olam" into "ainoios". This is not as helpful as one might ...

The Idea in Brief The last section of Gesenius' Hebrew Grammar indicates that this specific verse contains aposiopesis, which provides for the awkward structure of the verse. That is, Jabez promises that the "if the Lord does (this and that) and..." and yet nonetheless the passage does NOT include any reference to what Jabez did in response to his vows. In ...

Abraham's case Genesis 12 states very clearly that Abram (before renamed to Abraham) was called from his country (or land, v.1). Remember that previously in chapter 11 Terah went out from Ur of the Chaldeans with his children, to Haran. Back to chapter 12, God said that He will give the land to Abram's offspring (v.7). God expresses His ownership of the ...

Your difficulties in translating Genesis 22:8 and 22:14 are a result of insisting on a certain English translation which may not consistently capture the meaning of the entire passage. The verb ראה usually means "see" or something closely related to seeing. According to Strong's Concordance, the only instance where the verb ראה means "provide" other than ...

I agree with Ron that most of the other 20+ translations have it wrong, but so does he. Remember that Genesis says the river went out of the Park of Eden and split into four heads. This tells us the terrain was FLAT. Also, a mist was able to water the face of the earth. Also flat. This was "pangea"--one large continent. When Genesis 7:19 says "high ...
