comment Whose נְבָלָ֔ה in Job 42:8?
For helpful discussion of this "almost universally mistranslated" verse, see #3 of David Clines' "Seven Interesting Things about the Epilogue to Job", pp. 3-4 of the PDF.

comment Is יהוה ever transliterated in the Septuagint?
Ha! Well spotted. :) I expect it was omitted because I was relying on selective memory when producing that answer. Do feel free to edit in ιαω information -- very helpful, and pertinent!

comment After the crucifixion, why was Mary not cared for by her own children, rather than the disciple John?
Somewhat related: "Why did John take Mary, who was married, into his home?"

A related question on Christianity.SE: "What explanations are given for the apparent exaggeration of the number of Israelites in the Exodus account?"

comment Do any scholars argue a textual theory where the NT text was edited to make the autographa?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it concerns a specifically Christian and doctrinally-related understanding of inerrancy and inspiration, and thus belongs on Christianity.SE.

comment Is Genesis 1 a type of Hebrew Poem?
Benner is not a good guide here, Dick. In fact, some of his claims are decidedly ropey. (And macro-structures have no bearing on prose/poetry distinctions here.) Better off with things like Petersen & Richards, or Kugel, or Alter, or either of Watson's books.

comment Is Genesis 1 a type of Hebrew Poem?
Very helpful. The comparison to gJohn's prologue could use some nuance, though. It sounds as if you're suggesting that because gJohn has a prologue, and it's similar to Genesis, then the opening of Genesis must be a prologue too. Maybe you don't intend that, but it comes across that way. Note, too, that Endo's book (your Amazon link) has very little to do (almost nothing) with Genesis 1, and doesn't belong in that list. The general point (association of Gen 1 and Jn 1) is not controversial, though. In any case, this connection doesn't really bear on OP's question.

comment Does the Hebrew tally these numbers?
I admire your industry, but this is simply fanciful speculation. You state: "...the numbers were originally separated for a reason...". Correct. And the reason is: that's how numbers are presented in biblical Hebrew.

revised Did Ezekiel warn the just in Ezekiel 3:20?
placed key bits in bold: otherwise, need to do a bit of careful reading to work out the differences + disambiguate bib ref in title
