comment Why do different English translations differ on Matthew 24:36?
Abe - you cited several verses, and we are familiar with them, but how do you tie them together? For example, when the woman with the blood hemorrhage touched the cloak of Jesus and was healed (Matt 9:20-22). He sensed that power had left his body, but he stated that he did not know who touched him. How could that passage help us to understand the question raised by the OP concerning Matt 24:36? Help us to glean some insights from your own personal journey through the Scriptures!

comment Hosea 6.7: “like men”, “like Adam”, or “at Adam”?
@David - The Nineteenth Century Hebraist William Wickes indicated that the system of accents and cantillation marks were not driven by grammar, but by logic. This citation comes from his book, Two Treatises on the Accentuation of the Old Testament (Vol. I). Oxford: Clarendon Press, 3-4 (1887). Very Respectfully,

comment Hosea 6.7: “like men”, “like Adam”, or “at Adam”?
@MarkEdward - Yes, you correctly understood my point. That is, šām refers to a 'there'... but that the 'there' is Hamah (better, hēmmâ), not Adam. Again, the system of cantillations and accents is not grammatical, but logical.

comment Hosea 6.7: “like men”, “like Adam”, or “at Adam”?
@David - In the purple highlighted areas where I cite Keil & Delitzsch, they mention Psalm 14:5. In that verse, šām is modified by the remainder of the verse (through the systems of cantillations and accents). They indicate that the same applies to Hosea 6:7. So the modifying here is not grammatical, but logical (through the systems of cantillations and accents). Very Respectfully,

comment What is the difference between “soul” and “spirit”?
@e.s.Kohen - The word ר֚וּחַ appears for both men and beast in Eccl. 3:21, -- that is, notwithstanding that both have the ר֚וּחַ (which the context makes clear in Eccl. 3:19-20) -- what happens after death is another discussion, since animals are not made in the divine image. You are correct that these various terms appear almost interchangeably throughout the Bible, and so warrant scrutiny when they appear in their respective contexts.
