comment Are the 'vessels of wrath' in Romans 9:22 'prepared for' or are they 'preparing themselves for destruction'?
Yes, @Joseph I agree with ScottS. This answer started strong but then shifted to a bunch of verses with no linguistic connection to the verb under discussion. Using active verbs to discuss a middle/passive form is irrelevant. Your argument is non sequitur.

This question appears to be off-topic.

comment How does a Bible translator know if it is a poem?
When this was originally written it may have been OK, but over here at BH.SE we have requirements for showing your work (don't just tell us what you know, tell us how you know it). I'd really love to see you edit this to give some sources and develop/explain your ideas more fully, as they are much appreciated.

comment Who was Neri, father of Shealtiel?
@RaphaelRosch but it's a perfectly valid perspective and he shows his work for it. I'm glad to have Dick's perspective, and many others alongside it. +1

comment Winter refers to what climate
The best way to add additional information to your post is by editing it, with the edit button. It is more visible that way, and comments are mainly for secondary, temporary purposes. Comments are removed under a variety of circumstances. Anything important to your post should be in the post itself.

comment The value of the 153 large fish in John 21:11?
Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics Stack Exchange! Be sure to take our site tour to learn more about us. We're a little different from other sites. Be sure to properly cite the text you're asking about. The chapter and verse numbers do not always line up between the Hebrew, Greek, and English texts. I've gone ahead and edited this one for you.

comment Is John 7:53-8:11 inspired?
I went ahead and closed this question as 'inspiration' is a Christian theological position. It could be reworded to make it a textual criticism question, but then several answers would also have to be deleted. I'll leave this to the OP to decide. I know this is an older question and not all of the same sentiment was in place as it is now.

comment How should 2 Cor 5:10 be interpreted, in light of Isa 43:25?
@kmote I encourage you to read this post, then this one. Your focus is on the application of these texts in contemporary Christian practice, as evidenced by the last two paragraphs (note also the use of first person plural which provides further evidence of this). This has never been on topic here to my knowledge.

comment How should 2 Cor 5:10 be interpreted, in light of Isa 43:25?
This question still isn't a good fit here, but you could ask it on C.SE. I can migrate it if you'd like.

edit your answer to include the information, and be sure to write detailed answers here, not quick comments.

comment “Slave” vs. “servant” in Colossians
While an examination of Roman slavery practices would be too broad for this format, I am curious if this related question is a duplicate (at least of parts of this question) or not?

comment Genesis 3:16 Does God make them suffer?
au contraire, you earned my upvote ;) - in the future, note that you can also flag the question and when you have enough rep you'll be able to vote to close as a duplicate as well. Thanks for answering and pointing out where the OP can get more information - this answer is helpful.
