accepted Does the “fear of death” in Hebrews 2:15 refer to the dread of physically dying, or to something else?

comment What is the significance of the intransitive verb παύσονται in 1 Cor 13:8?
Mr. McCollough - we try not to reference teachers as strawmen in our Q&A, because the intent of this site is not to judge the views of others. In this regard, I rephrased your posting to provide the more neutral but more precise meaning of your question. In this way, we provide the more balanced approach to ensure the most objective of answers based on the biblical texts. Please take a moment to review the site's approach and outlook through SE.BH "tour." Thanks! Very Cordially,

comment Interpretation of Psalm 12:6-7
In verse5[6] the afflicted and the needy are in the masculine plural, but that verse ends with the referent to "them" in the masculine singular ("he longs"). It appears that the same referent of collective (first half of verse) and singular (second half of verse) are evident in verse 7[8] as well.

comment What is the proper translation of Proverbs 22:6?
@Susan - I noticed you had earlier written comments requesting more details, and now that I have had the time, I have provided the relevant source citations from the Masoretic Text with several screen shots.

comment Qualifications for deacons and pastors in 1 Timothy 3:1-12
@SteveTaylor - the angels appear to be witnesses to this principle that women have no teaching authority over men (1 Cor 11:10). Would this limiting hermeneutic also apply to the observation of this principle by the angels as well?

@SteveTaylor - how do we know which passages of Scripture to cherry pick as applicable to us today? What if we cherry picked other passages of the epistle as not relevant today? Where do we stop?

comment Is the meaning of the word 'spirit' in Luke 23:46 the same as in John 16:26?
That is it. There are a million people with differing views of what-says-what in the Bible, but if you can help us to see what you are seeing in an understandable narrative with sources, then you are truly a teacher!

I did not down-vote you, but here are my suggestions. Tell us what you understand, and communicate that to us in everyday language. Do not quote, quote, quote. Use academic sources and methods, but talk to us like we are sitting at the kitchen table talking. What you provided above was a litany of quotes.

comment How was David's sin possible?
@enegue - the inherent liability when teaching the words of God is that we either become puffed up (1 Cor 8:1) and/or others become jealous just like the Roman Christians (Philippians 1:17) to whom Paul had written his great epistle to the Romans, who were seeking to make him jealous instead of comforting him while he (Paul) was in prison in Rome.
