comment Hope or no hope in Job 13:15?
@Susan - thank you for the feedback. There is actually one example in the Hebrew Bible where the pi'el stem of this verb takes the infinitive construct as its object (similar to English) with the meaning of "wait for x [to ... ]"

comment What factors bear on the authenticity of Matthew 23:14?
@RevelationLad - the scientific method is based on the selection of the best hypothesis based on the least inconsistent evidence (and not the hypothesis with the most consistent evidence). The scientific method is based on the fact that we do not know what we do not know. If you ignore inconsistent evidence because of the emphasis on consistent evidence, one is apt to believe what one prefers to be true (Francis Bacon).

comment What factors bear on the authenticity of Matthew 23:14?
@RevelationLad - Metzger and his colleagues did not embrace the hypothesis with the most consistent evidence, but instead the hypothesis with the least inconsistent evidence. Since we do not know what we do not know, only relevant inconsistent evidence has relevant value in determining the credibility of any hypothesis. As the philosopher Sir Karl Popper once noted, we can never really prove that any hypothesis is true; instead, the best hypothesis is the one which is most difficult to disprove (because on the lack of inconsistent evidence).
