Funny that you should ask this question on 15th Shevat טא בשבט

comment Why distinguish the genders of asses/donkeys in Gen 12:16?
Because when you write in Hebrew, you have to write the gender. Every noun, every verb is declined with gender. And then because your translation must be as accurate as possible.

comment After the crucifixion, why was Mary not cared for by her own children, rather than the disciple John?
I am too intellectually bereft to understand this answer. Either that or this answer would not say it directly that the gospels are fairy tales, from we could learn a million "the moral of the story is ... "

comment Is there a time gap between the book of Zechariah and the Gospel of Matthew?
For Jews, the new covenant is yet to come. Yes, there is a huge time gap between the old covenant (noach's) and the current covenant (moses') and the new covenant(don't know who but certainly not jesus).

Book of Enoch is a reject and not acceptable for doctrinal derivation.

comment Was Jesus named after the eighth day of his birth?
The title of the question confused me a little. Like, was the baby named after his grandfather. Was Jesus named after "the eighth day of his birth" - got me scratching "does Jesus in Aramaic mean eight?"

comment Who laps and who kneels? Judges 7:5
"The issue is not who kneels and who stands" - don't agree with you. That is your personal conjecture.

comment Do the meanings of Cain and Abel's names tell us anything about how Cain killed Abel?
Did [הבל] took the meaning of "vanity" due to Abel's comparatively short life, or does [הבל] originally meant "vanity".

comment In Daniel 10:13, is the angelic speaker himself left alone, or does he leave Michael?
BTW, where are the "original" parchments of the septuagint?

comment In Daniel 10:13, is the angelic speaker himself left alone, or does he leave Michael?
The best way is to read the Hebrew Masoret. It is the most original of all the scriptures. It still baffles me why people insist on depending on the septuagint, which is a translation made for the purpose of introducing jewish scriptures to an audience familiar with hellenism and pagan myths and imageries and therefore uses pagan myths and imageries to speak to the level of the audience. And hence the fraudulent messages not found at all in the Masoret.

comment Did Ezekiel warn the just in Ezekiel 3:20?
The KJV is the most horridly inaccurate English translation of the Hebrew of the Bible discounting the TEV and the mormon version. It is a preference by many for its fraudulent messages. The NASB, though still inaccurate, is at least a better translation.

comment Is the Aramaic word “ara” in Daniel 2:39 a paranomasia (pun)?
Why can't [מלכו אחרי ארעא מנך] = following/another kingdom of land from you ? A kingdom that splits its territory from your land.

comment Does the original Hebrew support the NLT of Genesis 6:3?
The KJV / NIV are ridiculously imprecise translations. They pretend to use the masoret as the basis, but actually rely on the septuagint's authority. The septuagint is infused with hellenistic and pagan myths to speak to the level of the people who understood Greek, and had no idea what is written in the Hebrew. The NASB at least try to be closer to the Hebrew, but had to acquiesce to doctrinal biases when required.
