I am a Canadian, married with kid, and working in Hong Kong. I usually answer posts from a reformed / protestant / evangelical perspective.

People I have encountered on this site seem to be a ‘whole bunch of good people’. Even those who sharply disagree with my own point of view.

I am a huge sinner but am happy knowing God's grace will keep me in his grip.

comment Hebrew Text Indicative of a Local or Global Flood?
I have scanned a few commentaries of Genesis that reject the global flood belief but they do not try to argue it from the Hebrew text. Rather they say it was until recently believed by all that is was a global flood and then list non biblical reasons why they think a global flood is illogical and that this story must therefore be a legend. But maybe someone will still answer this question. you might need to wait a little while. cheers

comment How is the Septuagint interpretation of Psalms 40:6 reconciled with the Hebrew text?
FYI: My reason for providing some partial research is not to direct the answer to a predetermined acceptable one, but to simply state an observation that may or may not be included in an answer. It is simply to pass on something I found out that might, or may not be considered relevant.

comment The original form(s) of Isaiah 2:2-4 // Micah 4:1-3
@citsonga - can't help much as I am a classic reader and am reluctant to pay for anything published recently :). I do have good resources on the DSS though amd all I could find is they probably do not add much to any conjectures as the DDS for this section are basically exactly as the traditional Masoretic text without any surprises or new spins.

You seem to be raising questions from a book making an issue of minor flaws, rather then encountering them yourself from personal study. anyway does not matter questions are still valid..from what I have read it is hard to decide which manuscripts to follow as arguments for keeping or removing the 'tables' are both good (but keeping might have more manuscript support in terms of numbers). However to use this as an argument for claiming that Mark was originally written in Latin seems not be taken seriously by expositors I read.
