comment Why does Genesis 28:12 note that angels were going up and down the ladder?
For the cheese fans in the audience: HALOT page 173 indeed knows this word as cheese, by evidence of cognate languages. Same process.

@rotten your sources that disagree with HALOT? They don't even offer a ladder as an alternative.

comment Was the tower of Babel a ziggurat?
Texts from the ancient world are full of origin and explanation stories. In any case, I weakened the introduction to that idea.

comment Criticism of the Vulgate: alleged errors and inaccuracies in translation
It's sort of telling that google reveals only people defending the Vulgate as wonderful, not (apparently) attacking it with examples.

comment How would Elisha plowing with 12 oxen have been understood at the time of writing?
I think that Cogan agrees with you, as he picks 'teams' as opposed to 'couples' of oxen as the translation. A team seems to me to imply a person directing. My original image was 12 yokes each of two oxen, but now I'm thinking a herd of oxen and a platoon of plowmen.
