comment Isaiah 3:12: ‘…women rule over them.'
@BlessedGeek FWIW, I didn't intend anything theologically significant by my use of "tribe" over "people". I think "people" captures the semantics better, while "tribe" captures the grammar better. As I meant to highlight a grammatical point here, I chose "tribe". (If I had been intent on highlighting a semantic point, I agree that [collective] "people" would have been more appropriate.) So, no disagreement here. Hope that helps.

comment Isaiah 3:12: ‘…women rule over them.'
@BlessedGeek The trouble with using "my people" is that in English (particularly in America) it sounds plural. "My tribe" sounds singular, as it is in the Hebrew, which is what I was trying to highlight. (It would sound weird to say "His people is like a child.")

comment Isaiah 3:12: ‘…women rule over them.'
@Susan Isn't the "only" in that BDB entry indicating the verb is "only found in the Poel", and not "only found in Isaiah 3:12"? I don't have BDB open in front of me atm, but that's my assumption from the screenshot.

comment Isaiah 3:12: ‘…women rule over them.'
@Susan I wonder though... if perhaps the more standard uses of מעוֹלל didn't arise from the basic concept of "acting like a child". It is conspicuous... what do "vexing", "taking" and "poking" have in common? They are the stereotypical behaviors of children! :-) Of curiosity, does BDB give you extra-biblical data? (I'm wondering if it truly is "nowhere else attested", or if BDB is just being selective for the sake of relative brevity.)

@ThaddeusB I guess I'm missing the alternative. What else could he be asking?

comment Exegesis of Matthew 13
@ThaddeusB I took the question to mean "can someone please apply B. W.'s method to this passage so I can see how it works". If I'm understanding the question, it isn't seeking subjective perspectives at all.
