comment Understanding Numbers 11:25
Transliteration should be: "lo yasafu." But nice answer, +1.

comment What does “Jealous” mean in Exodus 34:14?
"So there is a sense that the root word looks back to the idea of zealous, but that would require interpretation and not pure translation." - I disagree. In Numbers 25:10-15 the root qanaa appears repeatedly, is translated differently in each of the various verses, but unambiguously means zealousness in verse 13.

"about" should be changed to "with" for clarity

comment Is “kill” a valid translation for Exodus 20:13 (Thou shalt not kill)?
@blundin, we're in agreement. The word is ambiguous and using Richard's logic we rule out one of its possible meanings suggesting that in the context of 20:13 it most likely means "murder."
