@DanAndrews I'd even argue from one voice to many ears to many voices to many ears ...

comment Why did the tabernacle use the colors blue, purple and scarlet?
Purple is usually associated with royalty and status because it was incredibly expensive to make. I have nothing for blue.

comment Is the usual translation of “ηὐχόμην” as “I could wish” justified in Romans 9:3?
I will note however, that middle/passive is quite a common convention in most academic circles.

comment What does Matthew 18:8-9 say about eternity?
In the greater context of the passage, I'd say that what this passage says about eternity is that it's much better than anything temporal. There are things that seem important to us right now - things that can be spiritually destructive. However, cast in light of eternity, they are relatively unimportant.

nice. so now the question becomes whether or not the weight is distributed well enough to ensure that the combined tensile strength of the gold rings is not exceeded. (Tensile strength 70-120 MPa)

Additionally, it would be an interesting undertaking to approximate the weight of the ark itself, and then calculate the weight distribution.

comment Cutting body and pagan tattoos forbidden in Leviticus 19, what pagan group?
Not an answer but I'm just hoping to toss some info in for anyone who may be answering ... Ketovet Ka'aka is a hapax legomenon (only occurs once).
