comment Job1:6: Who are the “sons of God”?
I'm surprised this hasn't been asked yet. Great question.

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.

What would you accept as "biblical evidence"? (E.g. would illustrations work, or are you looking for explicit statements?)

comment Does God care for oxen?
@WoundedEgo Again, it is the ox that is laboring, and by implication, its owner. The question is not whether this concept makes sense to you; the question is how the passages would have been understood by the ancients. As Dr. Verbruggen has shown, there is ample evidence that the ancients routinely understood this to be referring to rented oxen. If you want to discuss further set up a chat room, but it sounds to me like you're on a mission to scoff at Paul's exegesis and I'm growing weary of this.

comment Does God care for oxen?
@SharenEayrs Read on... he clearly says in the verses that follow that he does not want their money. In context, he is simply trying to provide them an example of what it looks like to lay aside your rights in order to keep your brother from stumbling.
