comment How does this KJV phrase change the understanding of 1 Tim 6:5?
The spurious passage would seem to be more aggressive in avoiding such people and not require "due process" if read that way. But now we are plucking mosquito hairs. ;-)

comment What are good contextual clues that a passage is meant to be read as hyperbole?
@Richard: Origen wishes it were asked 1900 years or so earlier too.

comment How does this KJV phrase change the understanding of 1 Tim 6:5?
It seems to me that the "such" could refer to either the actions ("disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, useless wranglings") or to the actors. My reading was that it was the actions that ought to be avoided as in verse 11. (But I have no real Greek so must depend on the kindness of strangers for translation issues like this.)

comment How is Psalm 34 linked to 1st Samuel 21?
I'd forgotten about the Abimelech vs. Achish issue. This is a good answer, but I think there is more. (I'll provide my own answer at some point to see what everyone thinks.)

comment How do Jewish scholars differ from Christian scholars in their approach to the Tanakh?
I agree with Monica. Your description of "Sod" seems to take the answer off the rails a bit. (And it's potentially offensive to boot.)
