comment How could the repentance of the early Ninevites in response to Jonah's message have led to “the destruction of the Jews?”
I went ahead and edited this question to conform to Jon's suggestions, in order to help it meet site requirements. I've tracked down the precise citation in Jerome's writings and reworked the question to specifically ask about the text as it relates to Jerome's assertion.

comment What basis do we have for defining Sabbatismos in Hebrews 4:9?
PS I'm not asking these questions to heckle you or to be annoying. I'm genuinely trying to figure out what you're looking for because I'm interested in giving an answer.

@Joseph ooh, now that's interesting. That is also a possibility, yes.

OK, so you are not asking how to translate it into English, but rather how it came to be transliterated from a Semitic language into Greek and then used in a specific way in this context?

The Aramaic wasn't distracting at all, I think this is mere semantic confusion (on my part). When you say "defines this word," you are not analyzing a given definition, but rather you are looking for how to best translate it, correct?

comment What basis do we have for defining Sabbatismos in Hebrews 4:9?
What basis do we have for defining it as... [what]? I presume as 'to keep the Sabbath,' but this is unclear. Also, what do you mean by 'tracing the scholars' steps in defining this Greek word'? It is clearly a transliteration from a Semitic word. I think you're asking for a justification for Lamasa's interpretation (but keep in mind he is translating from Aramaic, not Greek), but it isn't specified, which makes this question unclear (and I fear it will attract a bunch of poor answers as a result). This seems to be an excellent question, but please clarify what you're looking for.

comment Why is Wisdom personified as a woman?
Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics Stack Exchange! We're a little different from other sites. You asked two very interesting questions, but we've already addressed one of them in the past, check out Interpretation of Genesis 1:26 and What does “image” in Genesis 1:26-27 mean?. I've edited this question to ensure that your initial question that has not been addressed elsewhere on this site remains.

Focused question (there were two separate questions in here, the second of which is a duplicate)

comment Why would the disciples have rebuked people for bringing infants to Jesus?
Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics Stack Exchange! We're a little different from other sites. We expect answers to 'show their work,' which for this type of question requires historical research (the OP specifically asked for this). As such this is more of a comment than an answer. With a bit more rep, you will be able to post comments. For the moment I've flagged this post for conversion to a comment.

comment Why does the Septuagint contain non-Tanakh books?
Catholic Bibles are generally based on the Latin Vulgate, which means the Hebrew and Greek texts used by Jerome, while Orthodox Christians do use the Septuagint and PATr Greek text.
