Yes but unlike English the verbs do not normally contain the conjugation in themselves. (Admittedly "you" is sometimes implied for commands) I found a section on Jussive Imperitive and Cohortave in my introduction to Bible syntax by Waltke and O'Connor. Thank you again

comment Grammar-Literal Translation of Genesis 1:3 and 12:3
@DanO'Day thank you yes I agree that Hiphil is causative and Qal is not and that we must approximate Hebrew grammar in English. As far as I can see there are no verbs which totally lack causality and still convey what X is doing in English when read by a lay person.

comment Grammar-Literal Translation of Genesis 1:3 and 12:3
ok I do agree the permissive is not fully accurate because it implies indirect causation. But my problem is saying "God said" with no qualifiers implies direct causation. In English "God said" means the same thing as God caused himself to say.

@DanO'Day given answer to this question Is the Lord permissively or actively causing evil in Amos 3:6? if that Qal can be permissive I thought it was the next logical step to look at the other Qals which stands to reason might be permissive as well but I guess as you can see from the down votes that its not a popular idea. :)

comment God and Passive Hebrew tense and aspect
I'm sorry I should have been more precise in my question and in explaining my example but I'm new. Gen 4:11 has a cain being cursed by God in a qal passive participle. Others have said qal is simple with no implied causation. Gen 12:3 is a better example God blesses directly in Piel and indirectly in Niphal but curses only in qal imperfect similarly in ex 15:26 qal imperfect is used to "put sickness" as best i can tell this is called jussive or permissive. Is. 45:7 is another qal but active thats generally regarded as permissive. Like I said I'm new and I'd really like your feedback.

The Word also has a much less expensive Hebrew Morphology module.
