I am called to, "Teach the Word of the Lord; sing it to the nations loud and clear."
I enjoy inductive Bible study!
I study to show myself approved unto God.
I am intent upon what Scripture says, what it means and, what difference it makes.
I do not need to be right; but, I do need to discover what is right; thus, I welcome honest interaction/feedback.

comment Are the divine name and its contracted form somehow unique or are they truly inter-changeable?
The link you provide appears to convey rabbinic law in regard to this most holy and divine name; but it does not address matters of meaning or reason for the contracted form. I assure you that, while I am not Jewish, nor under rabbinic authority, I do revere our Creator and hold His name in utmost reverence. It is in a spirit of worship and an effort to hallow His name that I make my inquiries, that I might bring glory to His name, for He is exalted above all and His name is above all names in heaven or on earth.

comment Does Leviticus 19:28 in the original text instruct not to tattoo for the dead or not to tattoo at all?
Thank you Jarius. I would be interested to see this elaborated upon.

comment Are the divine name and its contracted form somehow unique or are they truly inter-changeable?
Thank you James. While both these questions are in regard to the same form of the name of God, they are separate and distinct. The first deals with the Hebrew construction and grammar, how the contraction came into existence and technically which letters are dropped, etc. This question deals with meaning of the two forms of God's name and any distinctions in meaning that may or may not exist between them.

comment Is “God” capitalised because it's the given name of Christianity's god?
Hello Andrew. This is a good question; I think it may be better suited for Christianity SE though. Questions on Biblical Hermeneutics SE need to be based on a particular passage of Scripture.

comment Why did the Mosaic Law prohibit the ancient Israelites from eating pork?
To expound, this seems connected with YHWH's intent to make them a kingdom of priests. We think of "holy" as "not immoral" (ie. what would be wrong for any human to do). However, the Scriptural concept of "holy" is "set apart" for God. Vessels used in the temple were not to be used for secular purposes. It would have been sinful to use the consecrated vessel for common purposes; but, there was nothing sinful about people using common vessels for common purposes--eating daily food, etc. Thus, it seems it is connected with the purpose of Israel as a nation holy (set apart unto God).

comment Chapter and verse numbers in Greek vs Hebrew/Aramaic
TN. Did you meant Hebrew vs Greek? If you meant Aramaic, is your question in regard to Aramaic portions of the OT or to the Aramaic Peshitta/Peshitto? If the latter, you might try asking in the forum at Peshitta.org.

revised What is Apostle Paul's “thorn in the flesh”?
I decided the answer should stay focused entirely and directly in answer to the question, what was Paul's thorn in the flesh.

The order of answers changes; so there may or may not be an answer above and it may not be the one to which your originally referred.

comment What does Paul mean by “unworthy manner” in 1 Corinthians 11:27-32?
Hello Debby. It sounds like you have some light you wish to shed on the subject. Your contribution sounds interesting; however, as it stands now, is more like a comment than a well thought out answer. Answers in this forum need to have a thesis and well supported points that follow a logical progression of thought. Consider re-writing your answer directly in answer to the question rather than in regard to another answer. Write from your perspective, presenting facts. Make clear points and support each with evidence.
