comment What does the word 'evil' mean in In Isaiah 45.7
HALOT = Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament, and OED is the Oxford English Dictionary.

Not to mention the question of whether 'fishes' versus 'fish' conveyed a meaningful distinction to readers of Tyndale or the KJV when written.

comment Is King Solomon the bridegroom in the Song of Solomon?
To quote IA Richards, "How many children had lady MacBeth?" You're asking about whether the author intended to convey something that is, I think, nowhere in the text at all. I wouldn't know where to start.

comment Is King Solomon the bridegroom in the Song of Solomon?
I could type another 'this can't be answered' answer here, but I'm not sure you'd appreciate. If you think he wrote it, he could certainly have metaphored himself, Marie-Antoinette-like, into the role of a 'simple shepherd'.

comment Is it plausible to read the references to Solomon in the Song of Solomon as comparisons of the bridegroom to the “masculine ideal”?
I don't think that many scholars think that this means 'black' in the modern sense of the term. 'Swarthy' or 'suntanned' are offered by HALOT.
