comment Why does Judges 18:1 say that Dan had no inheritance?
I found the Pulpit Commentary on biblehub.com/judges/18-1.htm interesting.

comment Why would Jesus had John to stay (alive?) till He comes?
I think Jesus' question may have just been a way of saying "Mind your own business and do what I say." Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary: "...It is the will of Christ that his disciples should mind their own duty, and not be curious about future events, either as to themselves or others."

comment Is the best translation for the Hebrew “rēaʿ” the common English “neighbor”?
As I look into this I’m finding some interesting translations regarding the word “neighbor”. In one case the word “rival” is used; something written earlier in 1 Samuel says “…and has given it to one of your neighbors--to one better than you.” (1 Samuel 15:28)

comment Parallels between Ruth and Elisha?
With Bible.org I found some interesting analyses of one book at a time. One for example focuses on Ruth and virtue, Naomi and redemption, etc. No Kings book is mentioned. bible.org/article/literary-analysis-book-ruth This set of Bible studies I found focuses on a specific book and has some cross referencing. I don't see any parallel comparisons regarding the books of Ruth and 1 Kings or 2 Kings. agapebiblestudy.com

comment Is being “cut off from one's people” the cause or effect of sin?
@Scott Somerville It’s very interesting how author Robert Young compiled his “extremely literal” Young's Literal Translation Bible. He did so to preserve the tense; he thought others were changing it. The Lev 7:27 is just one verse in Scripture where the YLT shows “hath been” tense but other English Bibles don’t.

comment Did original Scripture say Noah was a “son” of 600 years when the water landed?
@fdb I agree with your last comment; there I was explaining simply by using birth forward. Starting from conception when life begins though, (and assuming it's 9 months before birth), when the child has had exactly 3 months go by since birth, today he's into his 2nd year, 1st month, 1st day of...life. We'd say he became 3 months old yesterday; today he's started into his 2nd year of life.

@Frank Luke Q: Would it make more sense to discuss this in the library? (Then I could delete even this comment). The reason I'm taking it to even the day is because the story does.

@Frank Luke If a child were born exactly 1 year ago (yesterday), today he's into his 2nd year, 1st month, 1st day after birth. Therefore, he’s had 1 year, 0 months, and 0 days go by.

comment Did original Scripture say Noah was a “son” of 600 years when the water landed?
Thank you. Here's what I still have as a problem; it has Gen 7:6 being the one verse that doesn't fit the others mathematically. When the floodgates were opened, early in his 600th year of life, only 599 years, 1 month, 16 days of his life had gone by. By the time all was dry again, only 600 years, 1 month, 26 days of his life had gone by. His being 600 years old when the water first landed doesn't fit there.

@fdb I‘ve changed the question slightly, and removed a lot of detail. Thanks.
