Hey, does the unbound Bible have full text output for download? I had not seen it there when I was searching this answer. Thanks - and maybe we'll catch up on your project sometime...

Ahh, swasheck, I would be interested in your process for sblgnt/tauber/sql. That might not be par for this site, but many of our professors in Biblical Studies would value the sources for doing this stuff (in my opinion of their interests!).

Establishing the (source) text is always a primary step in Exegesis, which is integral to Hermeneutics. The textual basis is always an implicit part of doing Biblical Studies. If the Nestle-Aland text differs from both the UBS4 and the Textus Receptus, there are textual reasons (manuscript evidence) for it. Therefore, the textual study is a part of understanding the translation and theological issues that have branched from it. Good texts are Gold (even digital). For some purposes, such as combining texts into new Polyglots for study, digital texts make possible what used to take a lifetime.

I wasn't able to yet create a tag for "source texts", but I would have tagged this question, primarily under that label. There are a few university projects dedicated to keeping the electronic text, and all the "critical" editions of texts today are using electronic sources and software - not to mention efforts to advance distribution and translation.

comment What role does the Holy Spirit play in hermeneutics?
Gerhard Maier's Biblical Hermeneutics, published by Crossway, trans. from German by Robert Yarbrough handles this subject excellently. I do not want to start a debate, but this question could have a book written about it. Having read or reviewed very many texts on (Christian) Biblical Hermeneutics, I have to say, check that one out.

comment Genesis 3:12: What is the underlying Hebrew word translated into English as “with me” (in KJV)?
@noam 1+ for "extra mater lectionis" and for bringing Joüon into the discussion. Here's one example to show where Biblical language QA could also be included in this site - ?

I have emailed that site to see if they can help me locate it on their site. This is close. But two things: html has too much markup, also I need the vowel pointing (I see now they have a file with it). BTW, I like those audio files on mechon-mamre.org.

עִמָּדִי is from עִם (prep). And you should find נָתַתָּה to be 2ms (not 3fs). I have a Langenscheidt's Pocket Dictionary right next to me. I had edited out my comment-question back to you, so that you could just comment further to what I have written, if it is needed.

That's a good comment. Looking at עִמָּדִי versus אִתִּי in Brown-Driver-Briggs (BDB), perhaps the former has more to do with spatial nearness, where as the later has more to do with relational nearness in differing contexts. That could shed further light on the answer I have written. Or, perhaps the distribution of usage changes across the books of the Hebrew Scriptures, I haven't looked at that.
