I am a scripting language connoisseur, regular expression aficionado, network geek, general lover of Linux and a frequent contributor to open source software. I transitioned to programming from other work because I was too busy automating my own work environment to actually do the other work. I have a hobby interest in cartography. For more see my personal site. Most importantly, my life is defined by the grace of God given to men through Jesus Christ. It is my ambition that everything I do would reflect His glory and point people towards Him.

comment Who is the captain of the Lord's Host spoken of in Joshua 5:13-15?
@TonyJays: The Biblical Hermeneutics site is part of the same network of QnA sites, and were are lots of crossover users, but the scope of the site is rather different than here. Over there, Jewish as well as Christian exegetical work is in scope and questions do not have to be directed at specific doctrinal traditions. Instead they must be rooted in a specific textual issue. Some questions could be asked either place, but the kind of answer you'll get is rather different. Do you want to know how the text was originally understood or whether Christians have any doctrine related to this text?

@SSumner Technically things across different SE sites are not duplicates. I've dropped your comment in favor of one that does't cause confusion about what qualifies as a "duplicate" since that is terminology we use when closing questions here.

comment Meaning of N .. N+1 pattern in Amos, Proverbs, Job and Psalms
I see there perhaps some non-overlapping aspects of these two questions, but most of it seems to be along the same lines. If you would like to see answers address the different aspects of this question, please edit it to be focused on just the non-duplicate parts, then we can reopen and not have people plagued with doubt on where to put their answer. Until this clearly takes a different directly, I'm letting it stand as a marker to the other other questions. We can re-open it as independent after an edit. Thanks for understanding.
