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.

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.

comment Explaining Judges 14:4
yes but that's the point. his failings led to his position which could destroy the enemies of Israel. God used his weakness to get him close to the enemy. Samson wanted to get close as a holy desire and as a fleshly desire but God was coordinating it all. Of course there are other views also. cheers.

comment What is the context of Luke 12:47-48?
@user2479 - I see what you mean. I think the common view is that these two versus are not related. The Luke ref is about different degrees of punishment for 'unbelievers'. Some receive hard beatings forever, others receive lighter blows forever. The Corinthian is about all the lost time and wasted efforts the weakest 'believer' might become aware of, even just as the eternal relief of being saved from a burning house snatches him up into glory. Burnings of wasted works for believers versus beatings of condemned souls for unbelievers.
