Even the NJPS uses "peace" in this verse. That shocked me.

revised What is the meaning behind the parable of Children in the Marketplace in Luke 7:31-35?
Do fancy quotes not work in `code` blocks? This looks a touch better.

Italisize Hebrew transliterated words.

¡Bienvenidos a BH.SE! Thanks for the question. I have some ideas, but they may be as shallow as what you already know. Let me poke around a bit to see if I can find anything else.

comment What does Jesus mean in Matthew 26:64 with “You have said so”?
Good call. Now I wonder why Matthew might have changed the wording of the answer to claim a bit less? (One answer is that he was working from a different source in the Passion account. The Synoptic connection starts to break down at the end of the various gospels as the authors turn to their own, unique narratives.)

If your life depended on knowing the relationship of the length the hypotenuse to the sides of a right triangle (because of the structural integrity of the platform you are standing on or some such), might you have boteach in the Pythagorean theorem? (I think I understand, but I want to verify.)

+1: I don't know enough about Hebrew to answer this question, but I'd probably start by seeing how LXX translated those words into Greek.

comment What does “reconciling all things” mean in Colossians 1:20?
I just had to highlight this question, which made me smile: "Assuming that Paul is not contradicting himself in the span of a couple verse, how can we reconcile these two sets of verses?"
