I am a web programmer by day (PHP) and work on sermons and teaching material in the evenings.

I attended Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in Springfield, Missouri, for a Master of Arts in Theological Studies and a Master of Divinity. I am an associate pastor at a small church in Iowa. While in seminary, my emphasis was on Old Testament studies, but Dr. Wave Nunnally introduced me to the rabbinics. Those have become a special interest as well.

I also enjoy apologetics and was a very active member of the apologetics.org forum before it went defunct.

@RonMaimon, read the edit where I added section 146. The examples from section 146 are exactly of the same type as your examples. "Moses and Aaron" is a compound subject where the predicate is first. Genesis 9:23, 11:29, 21:32, 24:50, 34:20, and Judges 14:5 all have singular masculine verbs preceding several singular masculine subjects (such as "Abram and Nahor took wives for themselves" and "Shem and Japeth took the garment."). There is no difference between your examples and those.

GKC is on wikisource! Section 146 has many examples of subject verb disagreement in compound sentences.

@MonicaCellio, might this be similar to the practice of a messenger delivering a message being seen as the person giving the message himself? Just a thought I had this morning.

There are other situations in the Hebrew Bible with what we would call subject/verb number disagreement. However, they are not. When a group acts in unity, the singular verb is likely to be used.
