comment What language are people translating the Bible from?
This is totally dependent on the translation, and is almost always described in the Preface. The best ones go to the original Koine and Masoretic texts - older ones rely on the "Textus Receptus" or later Greek manuscripts.

comment Are kruvim also angels?
The difficulty is that angelos is a Greek word defining the job of a heavenly being (messenger), but has come to mean any heavenly being. Can we say that cherubim are heavenly beings? Yes. Can we say they are messengers? No. But in popular parlance, are angels just messengers or are they any kind of heavenly being? I would argue the popular notion of the word is that second definition - but that second definition doesn't come about until after the Scriptures are written.

comment What is the 'cock's crow'?
As one who has chickens, I suggest that the miracle was that a rooster could be silent long enough for Peter to say three sentences! Those things are loud and unlike what you see in cartoons, they crow all night long.

comment What does it mean for someone to be another person's “portion”?
When this questIon was on C.Se, the point was to read this doctrinally, not idiomatically.
