Comments: Hi Jeff. Thanks for your great research and work in bringing the Hebrew Bible alive. I have been looking at your mechanical translation and your literal translations of the Hebrew imperfect tense, which you translate as a future tense as it denotes incomplete action. I appreciate why you have done this but it does make it quite difficult to read. Have you ever read the book 'A New Approach to the Problem of the Hebrew Tenses and its Solution Without Recourse to Waw-Consecutive' by O.I.Barnes published by J.Thornton and Son, University Booksellers, 11 Broad Street, Oxford in 1965? It is excellent and well worth a read, but I think only 400 copies were produced (I bought a copy in an Oxford bookshop as well as a copy of his excellent commentary on the Song of Songs). His approach is to translate any imperfects (including waw-consecutives) as 'ing' showing incomplete action and to translate perfects as past tense. For instance Genesis 1 reads "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth, but the earth was waste and barren, and darkness was over the face of the deep, so the Spirit of God moves- intently over the face of the waters:the God is saying, "there is light" and there is light. And God is seeing that the light is good, so God is separating between the light and the darkness, and God is naming the light Day, while the darkness he had named Night. So there is an evening and a morning: one day". I know that this translation is less literal using words like 'so' for 'and', but I like the way he handles the perfect and imperfect tenses translating the tenses literally, which also gives a possible new nuance to interpretation- e.g. had God previously named the darkness 'night' prior to naming the light 'day'?

If you can get a copy of this book online I would highly recommend it to you. search/title/new-approach-problem-hebrew- tenses-solution/author/barnes/

Comments: I recently discovered the Aramaic/Hebrew teachings from Alan Horvath. He teaches with the original language, which i found to be very anointing and i feel i draw closer to YHWH and his word. I have recently bought several books to teach myself the Aramaic/Hebrew language and pictograph, then i discovered your site, which goes much more in depth! I will be purchasing your books soon! Thanks for a great website!

Comments: Jeff I have been struggling with this verse for a very long time. Genesis 3:22.

I've tried to apply the Abstract with the Concrete method, but I still don't come up with a solution to the meaning of this scripture.

E-Sword shows the word Lord being God Himself, and the word God, as himself or Angels. I get this part of it. But what confuses me is God, using the words "Like US", They would know good and evil..."like us". This scripture sounds like Jehovah is associating the Angels with being equal to himself....Like us.

I've struggled with this for years.

Hope you can help me out.

Comments: By the will of God, MT let me access the majestic picture of the pure word of truth of our LORD God of Israel, our Father revealed consciously within since 2014. The works within take the same journey in the same way that Lord God prepared a history of the mankind till the coming of our Lord Jesus, the Christ. The Sacrifice that brings us from under the righteousness of law into the righteousness of faith, being able under the new covenant to undertake as a one called the same journey from the Genesis till Revelation of Christ. This inner journey has started long before I was able to see myself in the very word of God, from what first words of Genesis, from MT describes:"in Summit he did Fatten at Sky-s and At the land, and at the Land she had Exist Confusion and Unfilled and Darkness upon Faces":obese, depressed, confuse, empty of understanding of life.I have cried out to my God. As pattern, we see that any time children of Israel cried out to God for help, He has answered. I got faith (for my faith it was just an intellectual understanding of God), and called to the Scriptures and I have started the journey of the living God, the Word that sounded alive within and was my life. I now understand how God does His beautiful works on earth as it is in heaven through each of one of us. MT offer the pure word with whom my inner journey God has started since 2014.
