If this event actually occurred, we are left to form an opinion as to Xerxes' likely intentions when he called for his wife. If the event is fictional, then we can look at the text to see what the author probably intended. Bruce Feiler says, in Where God Was Born, page 331, it is known from Persian records that Queen Amestris, Xerxes' only known wife, ...

This interpretation---that she was being asked to present herself nude---is a good example of eisegesis. It could, possibly have meant that, but there's precious little hermeneutical evidence for such an interpretation to have any real merit. Interpreting scripture requires that we find the meaning of a text first in its immediate context. Nothing in the ...

Having received no answer from the community, I reached out to Dr. Gary Rendsburg, my former mentor, who currently serves as chair of the Jewish studies department at Rutgers University. It turns out that I was heading in the wrong direction by assuming that the troublesome word is either Hebrew or Aramaic, because it appears to belong to neither language. ...

Quite simply, because 'YHWH' (Yahweh) is incorrect. 'YHVH' (Ye-Ho-Vah/Je-Ho-Vah) is the correct form of God's name. So the name 'Yah/Jah' really is a contraction of 'Yehovah/Jehovah', dropping all but the first and last two letters. In English it is pronounced 'Je-ho-vah', while in Hebrew it is pronounced 'Ye-ho-vah' (just as 'Joseph' is pronounced ...

Nehemiah Gordon proposes this theory to account for Yah, while disagreeing with the scholarly consensus regarding the pronunciation Yahweh. He states that in ancient Hebrew, contractions were commonly formed by taking the first and final letters. ...

Contextual and Historical Analysis Two other uses The word עִצָּבוֹן (ʿiṣṣāḇôn) itself is only found 3 times in the Hebrew Scripture, all in Genesis. Here in 3:16, then in 3:17, and finally Gen 5:29.1 The use in Gen 5:29 is actually a clarifying commentary on 3:17. The NKJV (used for all English translations herein) translates 3:17 and 5:29 as: 3:17 ...

The Idea in Brief The best reading for this verse would accept the qere as suggested by the Masoretic editors. That is, the following translation would capture the full essence of this verse: Job 13:15 15 Look, he is going to kill me: I wait for him [to strike]; in the meantime, I am going to argue [my case] before Him. Why does the ketiv or qere ...

Carol Meyer's translation is spot on. It is my attempt to refute the notion that Eve and all later mother's birth pangs were multiplied, but it was actually the woman's conceptions and attempts (or efforts) to conceive the promised seed, that were increased. Let me explain. After a causal reading of Gen 3 one may conclude that once Adam and Eve sinned, God ...

The best way is to find out how this word is used elsewhere in the Bible. Let us first presume we have no idea what the word means. Let us tentatively encode it as "repugnant", because we know it is something that repulses us. The candidate meanings are horrid repugnant repulsive revolting abhorrent unpleasant nauseous undesirable dreadful/dreaded ...

This is a mistake in the NABRE. I contacted the USCCB, and they kindly replied, saying, Thank you for your message; we were contacted recently with this same question and noted that this was an error. We will be working to correct it by updating the website and informing publishers.
