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.

comment Looking Me Whom They Have Pierced - Zechariah 12:10
@RevelationLad - The Mishnah and subsequent Talmud appeared after the closing of the New Testament canon. What is somber and causes much reflection is that the eschatological "Meshiach ben Joseph" appears to be a candidate for the Antichrist, and the "Meshiach ben David" the candidate for the False Prophet, if and when we read the Revelation of John, the Book of Daniel, and portions of 1 and 2 Thessalonians as "futurist" predictive prophecy.

comment Looking Me Whom They Have Pierced - Zechariah 12:10
@RevelationLad - I think that today whenever any Christian partakes of the Lord's Table they are "seeing" the pierced one, because the bread represents his broken body and the cup represents his blood.
