comment What gender does the pronouns have that denote ruach or pneuma?
Thank you @H3br3wHamm3r81 but may I return the queston to its original purpose. If there exists such a grammatical breach (as in "das Mädchen - sie ist", not "Das Mädchen - es ist"). As for the implications of grammatical gender, that is another question. (And yes, I do get the difference...)

comment Is El-Shaddai “Sky God” where Sky==Breasts?
@Ron Maimon: Since my books are in storage, I can not give you any details as to why the scholars I was referencing preferred "mountain", but their reasons were along the lines of TWOT cited in the answer above, even though they provided more etymological detail. Compared to other discussions I've seen about interpreting biblical Hebrew, they did not seem particularly stretchy at all. But since I am now giving an opinion based on memory only, I have nothing further to contribute to this discussion.

comment What is Leviticus 13:55 all about?
There does not seem to be an "it" in LXX. However, my Greek is too rusty to make a good interpretation of the text.

It seems to me that you'd prefer "breasts" for non textual reasons(?) I'm no expert in biblical Hebrew but have talked to or read the works of quite a lot of them, many of whom do not have a high view about the inspiration o the Scriptures. Never have I heard anyone give linguistic credibility to the view that Shaddai would be based on "breasts".

Do all manuscripts have identical text here?

comment What is the evidence for the existence of the Q document?
This is a question about isagogics and thus it is a an exegetics question.
