comment Why is David's throne established by so much deceit?
The God of the OT reveals himself to Israel through history, so for them, history was theology. That's key to understanding the OT.

comment Jewish interpretation of Daniel 7:13-14
From middle of 2:4 until end of 7 is Aramaic. "bar enash" is the same as the Hebrew "ben adam", meaning, "human being".

comment What are the “shields of the earth”?
Same term magen or shield used in Psalms 84:10, and 89:19. In 47:9 the term is used instead of "kings" because at this point in time they are defeated and so are no longer worthy of the title which in this psalm refers only to God. This psalm seems to commemorate an actual military victory, for which God is credited.

comment What are the “shields of the earth”?
My translation would be: "The nobles of the nations assemble, along with the people of the God of Abraham, for the rulers of the earth have submitted to God, and He is greatly praised".

comment “God of Heaven” in the book of Daniel
In manuscript, Ezra 7:*12*, Aramaic "Elaha Shamaya". See Daniel 2:19 same Aramaic. See Genesis 24:3 for first use in Hebrew, preceded by the tetragrammaton, followed by "and God of the earth". See Nehemiah 1:4 (Heb.).

comment Did Lot or the men of Sodom recognize Lot's visitors as angels?
If the men of Sodom cannot recognize the humanity of their fellows, how could they recognize angels?

comment Isaac's Blessing of His Sons
The theory of the Isaac's collusion in the ruse is found in some of the Midrashic traditions. It's not mainstream interpretation, but the drafting of the story leaves the possibility open. It does paint Isaac in a better light, and that helps solve one of the central problems of the story, what was it that Issac was thinking in 25:28?

comment David's Brinkmanship with the Philistines at Apheq
That is, if we were looking for an apologetic, we could say that David's battle plan was to betray the Philistines in their midst, and possibly even save the day for Saul, a further demonstration of both his loyalty, his bravery and his audacity ("hutspah" we wold call it now ;-).

comment Psalms, Hymns, Songs: What are the meanings of these words Biblically?
This is a wild stab in the dark. Would be good to ask someone who actually knows the text if this guess makes any sense.
