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.

Thank you! I remembered Phineas and the spear, but hadn't remembered the context at all.

comment Who was a greater king: Hezekiah or Josiah?
My point is that people overuse superlatives all the time. My daughter will tell you that Lincoln and Washington are both our greatest President EVER! (She is, however, smart enough to realize that David Tennant is better than Matt Smith, but I digress).

comment Who was a greater king: Hezekiah or Josiah?
Not to be snarky, but the only objective answer to that question would be someone who lived through both kingships, a physical impossibility. It would be like asking, who is the greater ruler, George Washington or Gandhi. The bible is clearly pointing out both were good kings.
