The Root Of וְשַׁבְתִּי In Psalm 23-6.Pdf, Philomena M. French 2016 Independent Researcher

The Root Of וְשַׁבְתִּי In Psalm 23-6.Pdf, Philomena M. French

Philomena M French

The correct root of וְשַׁבְתִּי which is found in Psalm 23:6 has occasioned a considerable amount of scholarly debate.  As it is written in the Masoretic Text it should be interpreted as coming from the root שׁוב and this is how it is invariably interpreted on the nine other occasions on which it is found in the Tanach. 

This paper proposes that the root of the final verb in Psalm 23v6 is שׁוב and that this is a finite verb which reflects repeated action.  The form of the verb - the waw consecutive perfect ...

Chiastic Structuring Of Large Texts: Second Nephi As A Case Study, Noel B. Reynolds 2016 Brigham Young University - Provo

Chiastic Structuring Of Large Texts: Second Nephi As A Case Study, Noel B. Reynolds

All Faculty Publications

The experiment conducted in this paper has been the application of the principles of Hebrew rhetoric—as that has come to be understood by biblical scholars over the last half century—to the Book of Second Nephi, self-described as personally written by Nephi, who was educated in Jerusalem at the end of the 7th century BCE, a time and place where these principles are now thought by scholars to have been de rigeur. The experiment did not refute the hypothesis, but instead did produce a plausible division of the book into 13 sub-units that readily organize themselves chiastically as a ...


The “Way Of The Lord” And The Doctrine Of The Two Ways As Displayed In The Bible And In The Book Of Mormon, Noel B. Reynolds 2016 Brigham Young University - Provo

The “Way Of The Lord” And The Doctrine Of The Two Ways As Displayed In The Bible And In The Book Of Mormon, Noel B. Reynolds

All Faculty Publications

From its opening pages to the end, the Bible describes a bifurcated world in which God bids, commands, and teaches the men he has created to follow him in the way of righteousness, and in which the devil leads men into wickedness. And while great blessings and cursings are promised and realized in this life according to which way men choose to live their lives, the final judgment comes after this life when all men will be judged righteously by their god, according to whether they chose to follow good or evil. This way of seeing things surfaces explicitly in ...


“The City Was Named After An Herb Called Mesas In Ancient Spanish”: Rabbi Yosef Mesas’ Testimony Concerning His Surname, Abraham Ofir Shemesh 2016 Ariel University, Israel Heritage Department, ISRAEL

“The City Was Named After An Herb Called Mesas In Ancient Spanish”: Rabbi Yosef Mesas’ Testimony Concerning His Surname, Abraham Ofir Shemesh

Journal of Literary Onomastics

Yosef Mesas (1892–1974), a renowned Jewish Rabbi, claimed that the origin of his surname is the ancient city Mesas near Madrid, named for a medicinal herb common there. He assumes that "Mesas" became a common name in Morocco after the Jews were exiled from Spain in 1492. Mesas suggests that the herb is "Masasa" in Moroccan Arabic (Darija dialect). In the 12th century, Maimonides stated that Moroccans call the genus Plantago "Masasa". This fact refutes Mesas' assumption that the name was brought to Morocco after the Alhambra Decree.

"Mesas" apparently originates from the Spanish term "mesa", meaning "tableland" or ...

Le Détective Biblique: Daniel, "Le Festin De Balthazar" Ou Une Histoire Souterraine Du Roman Policier, Rebecca Josephy 2016 The University of Western Ontario

Le Détective Biblique: Daniel, "Le Festin De Balthazar" Ou Une Histoire Souterraine Du Roman Policier, Rebecca Josephy

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

La problématique de cette étude s’ancre dans un constat : à la fin du XIXe siècle et au cours du XXe un épisode biblique dans le Livre de Daniel, mieux connu sous le titre « Le Festin de Balthazar » apparaît dans un nombre significatif de romans policiers, y compris le tout premier texte de la série Sherlock Holmes, Une étude en rouge. Que pourrait expliquer cette occurrence fréquente dans un nombre aussi canonique d’œuvres du roman policier ? « Le Festin de Balthazar », pourrait-il être considéré comme un ancêtre lointain de ce genre littéraire ? Et pourquoi cet important phénomène intertextuel ...
