comment Satan: Stumbling Block or Accuser?
@BlessedGeek: The more you learn the language of the manuscripts and the more you study the texts in manuscript form, the more independent you can be of ad hominem worries and can cite good explanations when you find them, regardless of the persuasion of the writer. In this case, I found a pretty good English explanation of the words "set", "satan", "sitnah", with their OT usage davka on an accessible Christian site.

comment Does Romans 13:8 include a prohibition of taking loans?
@BlessedGeek: Well, this isn't exactly what I had in mind. Paul lived in tumultuous times that were hard to comprehend and had himself witnessed miracles. He was by all accounts a responsible leader.

comment Satan: Stumbling Block or Accuser?
@Kazark The identification of the particular snake in the creation story of Genesis is part of the post OT personification of Satan, a back-reading into the text from a later time. BTW, there is another snake, made of copper, that Moses made that is identified as a means of performing healing miracles for the Israelites.

comment Why is Israel referred to with a male pronoun in Jeremiah 31:10?
Jer 31:9 in the Mesorah, start of the open "parashah". The OP question is probably why "he/him" and not "them", referring to the people of Israel, especially as a flock is in general plural. Answer is that "Israel" here is the a.k.a of the patriarch Jacob, who represents the people of Israel in prophetic writing, plus OT Hebrew in general does not stand on consistency of person or number so that he/flock does not sound odd in OT Hebrew. As an aside, there is some room to translate יקבצנו as "collect them", because of the diacritic.
