Isaiah 41

Verses 6 and 7 are called an interpolation in the JB notes. They seem to be referring to specific work within the industrial or construction trades. Nails spelled סמר rather than שׂמר.  But interpolation or not, perhaps it is a glimpse into a side room where people help each other, an alternative universe, where people in response to God, do not hurt each other or build up massive walls of self-protection.

Verse 19, supposed to be a good tree - I have taken שׁוט as acacia שׁטה rather than scourge שׁטט.

Verse 28,  if I asked them. Reading vav as if in this case seems a forced move but certainly not an impossible one. The response to the asking is problematical if one thinks that idols are the subject. Idols could not be definition return anything like 'a word'. Fortunately דבר as pestilence is to hand. A suitable response from some foreign powers.

יִגְּשׁוּ֙ אָ֣ז יְדַבֵּ֔רוּ יַחְדָּ֖ו לַמִּשְׁפָּ֥ט נִקְרָֽבָה
1 Be silent for me, coasts, and let tribes renew power.
Let them come close, then let them speak, and as one for lessons in judgment, let us come near.

2 C Who roused righteousness from the sunrise, called him to his feet,
gave, in his presence, nations, and made him rule sovereigns? His sword gives like dust, his bow blows as stubble.

No path by his feet was entered.

saying, It is good for the soldering. And he resolved it with nails. It will not be moved.

Numbers 18

Verse 1 betrays a very deep understanding of sin and its cost. Regardless of what one thinks of priesthood, the responsibility is not a light one.

In verse 14 is that word חרם (xerem) that everyone complains about as being too violent. (As if anything could be more violent than the god of this present age!) Here it is in this chapter in a cultic context. All that is under the ban in Israel is for the priests. But we don't say חרם as under the ban or to be utterly destroyed in this context. Yet we should, for it was all given to Yahweh and this is effectively to render it not consumable by humans since it is destroyed in the consuming fire. But the priests get it as their provender for their families even though it is banned חרם. This should help explain (if we must) something of the חרם when it is applied to utter destruction of a town or a people. What is banned belongs to Yahweh. Perhaps we should read devoted there too.

Violence can easily be justified by human beings if God is seen as violent. This God is a consuming fire, but the trajectory of the will of this One who is, who was, and who is to come, or who-is-becoming-what-it-is-becoming is kindness, not violence. Faith that claims a foundation from the Hebrew scriptures and believes in building walls or hardening soft targets is a disobedient faith. It violates the vulnerability of the suffering servant. It counts God's self-giving as worth nothing. It is an operational atheism.

Does this also affect me? Yes. I live in a privileged place among a privileged people. We should beware of letting our privilege become entitlement to be defended at all costs. Little children, keep yourselves from idols. (To quote another old writer.)

The idolatry of possessions is part of this chapter. A tithe received is already taxed, right? No, they too are subject to tithe. It may not be the rule of a tithe today, but just think of the power to be wielded by good gifts when the call goes out for help (whether we get a tax receipt or not).

Numbers 18 Fn Min Max Syll
וַיֹּ֤אמֶר יְהוָה֙ אֶֽל־אַהֲרֹ֔ן אַתָּ֗ה וּבָנֶ֤יךָ וּבֵית־אָבִ֙יךָ֙ אִתָּ֔ךְ תִּשְׂא֖וּ אֶת־עֲוֺ֣ן הַמִּקְדָּ֑שׁ
וְאַתָּה֙ וּבָנֶ֣יךָ אִתָּ֔ךְ תִּשְׂא֖וּ אֶת־עֲוֺ֥ן כְּהֻנַּתְכֶֽם
1 And Yahweh said to Aaron, You and your children and your father's house with you, you will bear the iniquity of the sanctuary.
And you and your children with you, you will bear the iniquity of your priesthood.
3e 4C 30

2 And moreover, your kin, the branch of Levi, the sceptre of your father, bring near with you, that they be allied to you and minister to you,
and you and your children with you before the tent of the testimony.

3 And they will keep your watch, and the watch of all the tent,
but to a vessel of the sanctuary or to the altar, they will not come near, so they do not die, even they ... even you.
3e 4C 15
26
וְנִלְו֣וּ עָלֶ֔יךָ וְשָֽׁמְר֗וּ אֶת־מִשְׁמֶ֙רֶת֙ אֹ֣הֶל מוֹעֵ֔ד לְכֹ֖ל עֲבֹדַ֣ת הָאֹ֑הֶל

and a stranger will not come near to you.

an endowment for you, given to Yahweh to serve the service of the tent of engagement.

17 B But the firstborn of a bull, or the firstborn of a young lamb, or the firstborn of a she-goat, you will not ransom. They are holy.

וַיֹּ֨אמֶר יְהוָ֜ה אֶֽל־אַהֲרֹ֗ן בְּאַרְצָם֙ לֹ֣א תִנְחָ֔ל וְחֵ֕לֶק לֹא־יִהְיֶ֥ה לְךָ֖ בְּתוֹכָ֑ם
אֲנִ֤י חֶלְקְךָ֙ וְנַחֲלָ֣תְךָ֔ בְּת֖וֹךְ בְּנֵ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵֽל
20 And Yahweh said to Aaron, In their land you will not inherit and there is no share for you among them.
I am your share and your inheritance among the children of Israel.
3e 4C 26
17
וְלִבְנֵ֣י לֵוִ֔י הִנֵּ֥ה נָתַ֛תִּי כָּל־מַֽעֲשֵׂ֥ר בְּיִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל לְנַחֲלָ֑ה
חֵ֤לֶף עֲבֹֽדָתָם֙ אֲשֶׁר־הֵ֣ם עֹֽבְדִ֔ים אֶת־עֲבֹדַ֖ת אֹ֥הֶל מוֹעֵֽד
21 And to the children of Levi, behold, I have given all the tithe in Israel as inheritance,
renewal for their service that they are serving, the service of the tent of engagement.
3d 4C 22
19
וְלֹא־יִקְרְב֥וּ ע֛וֹד בְּנֵ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל אֶל־אֹ֣הֶל מוֹעֵ֑ד
לָשֵׂ֥את חֵ֖טְא לָמֽוּת
22 So the children of Israel will not approach any more to the tent of engagement,
to bear sin, to die.
3d 4B 16
5
וְעָבַ֨ד הַלֵּוִ֜י ה֗וּא אֶת־עֲבֹדַת֙ אֹ֣הֶל מוֹעֵ֔ד וְהֵ֖ם יִשְׂא֣וּ עֲוֺנָ֑ם
חֻקַּ֤ת עוֹלָם֙ לְדֹרֹ֣תֵיכֶ֔ם וּבְתוֹךְ֙ בְּנֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל לֹ֥א יִנְחֲל֖וּ נַחֲלָֽה
23 And the Levite, he will serve the service of the tent of engagement, and they they will bear their iniquity,
a statute forever for your generations. And among the children of Israel they will not inherit an inheritance.
3e 4C 22
23
כִּ֞י אֶת־מַעְשַׂ֣ר בְּנֵֽי־יִשְׂרָאֵ֗ל אֲשֶׁ֨ר יָרִ֤ימוּ לַֽיהוָה֙ תְּרוּמָ֔ה נָתַ֥תִּי לַלְוִיִּ֖ם לְנַחֲלָ֑ה
עַל־כֵּן֙ אָמַ֣רְתִּי לָהֶ֔ם בְּתוֹךְ֙ בְּנֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל לֹ֥א יִנְחֲל֖וּ נַחֲלָֽה
24 ~ Because the tithe of the children of Israel that they contribute to Yahweh as a contribution, I have given to the Levites as inheritance.
Therefore I said for them among the children of Israel, They will not inherit an inheritance.
3e 4C 29
21
וַיְדַבֵּ֥ר יְהוָ֖ה אֶל־מֹשֶׁ֥ה לֵּאמֹֽר 25 And Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 3e 3g 10
וְאֶל־הַלְוִיִּ֣ם תְּדַבֵּר֮ וְאָמַרְתָּ֣ אֲלֵהֶם֒ כִּֽי־תִ֠קְחוּ מֵאֵ֨ת בְּנֵֽי־יִשְׂרָאֵ֜ל אֶת־הַֽמַּעֲשֵׂ֗ר אֲשֶׁ֨ר נָתַ֧תִּי לָכֶ֛ם מֵאִתָּ֖ם בְּנַחֲלַתְכֶ֑ם
וַהֲרֵמֹתֶ֤ם מִמֶּ֙נּוּ֙ תְּרוּמַ֣ת יְהוָ֔ה מַעֲשֵׂ֖ר מִן־הַֽמַּעֲשֵֽׂר
26 And to the Levites you will speak and say to them, When you take from the children of Israel the tithe that I have given for you from them in your inheritance,
then you will contribute from it a contribution to Yahweh, a tithe from the tithe.
3c 4C 45
21
וְנֶחְשַׁ֥ב לָכֶ֖ם תְּרוּמַתְכֶ֑ם
כַּדָּגָן֙ מִן־הַגֹּ֔רֶן וְכַֽמְלֵאָ֖ה מִן־הַיָּֽקֶב
27 And your contribution will be reckoned for you,
as grain from the threshing-floor, and as the fullness from the wine-vat.
3e 4A 9
15
כֵּ֣ן תָּרִ֤ימוּ גַם־אַתֶּם֙ תְּרוּמַ֣ת יְהוָ֔ה מִכֹּל֙ מַעְשְׂרֹ֣תֵיכֶ֔ם אֲשֶׁ֣ר תִּקְח֔וּ מֵאֵ֖ת בְּנֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל
וּנְתַתֶּ֤ם מִמֶּ֙נּוּ֙ אֶת־תְּרוּמַ֣ת יְהוָ֔ה לְאַהֲרֹ֖ן הַכֹּהֵֽן
28 B So you will contribute, even you, a contribution for Yahweh from all your tithes that you will take from the children of Israel,
and you will give from it a contribution for Yahweh to Aaron the priest.
3e 4C 30
19
מִכֹּל֙ מַתְּנֹ֣תֵיכֶ֔ם תָּרִ֕ימוּ אֵ֖ת כָּל־תְּרוּמַ֣ת יְהוָ֑ה
מִכָּל־חֶלְבּ֔וֹ אֶֽת־מִקְדְּשׁ֖וֹ מִמֶּֽנּוּ
29 From all your endowments you will contribute every contribution for Yahweh,
from all its choicest, its holiness from it.
3e 4B 16
11
וְאָמַרְתָּ֖ אֲלֵהֶ֑ם
בַּהֲרִֽימְכֶ֤ם אֶת־חֶלְבּוֹ֙ מִמֶּ֔נּוּ וְנֶחְשַׁב֙ לַלְוִיִּ֔ם כִּתְבוּאַ֥ת גֹּ֖רֶן וְכִתְבוּאַ֥ת יָֽקֶב
30 And say to them,
When you have contributed its choicest from it, then it will be reckoned for the Levites as income of a threshing-floor and as income of a wine-vat.
3e 4C 7
27
וַאֲכַלְתֶּ֤ם אֹתוֹ֙ בְּכָל־מָק֔וֹם אַתֶּ֖ם וּבֵֽיתְכֶ֑ם
כִּֽי־שָׂכָ֥ר הוּא֙ לָכֶ֔ם חֵ֥לֶף עֲבֹֽדַתְכֶ֖ם בְּאֹ֥הֶל מוֹעֵֽד
31 And you will eat it in every place, you and your houses,
because a wage it is for you, renewal for your service in the tent of engagement.
3e 4C 15
16
וְלֹֽא־תִשְׂא֤וּ עָלָיו֙ חֵ֔טְא בַּהֲרִֽימְכֶ֥ם אֶת־חֶלְבּ֖וֹ מִמֶּ֑נּוּ
וְאֶת־קָדְשֵׁ֧י בְנֵי־יִשְׂרָאֵ֛ל לֹ֥א תְחַלְּל֖וּ וְלֹ֥א תָמֽוּתוּ
32 And you will not bear sin over it when you have contributed its choicest from it,
and the holy things of the children of Israel you will not profane, and you will not die.

Judges 4

Ch=X. In my transcriptions of names, I am not quite uniform. But the hard H, ח, is sometimes X and sometimes Ch. Both pronounced the same, a heavy h guttural. Names will be subject to automated transcription if I chose to update them later. One could spend a lifetime on them. Transcribing and playing with their sense. Deborah is bee or her word. Baraq is lightning or carbuncle. Jael is a wild goat. Lightning has no problem yielding adornment to the wild goat.  Carbuncle, a little like any aged P, is also cool. Xeber is companion or partner.

Judges 4 Fn Min Max Syll
וַיֹּסִ֙פוּ֙ בְּנֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל לַעֲשׂ֥וֹת הָרַ֖ע בְּעֵינֵ֣י יְהוָ֑ה
וְאֵה֖וּד מֵֽת
1 And again the children of Israel did evil in the eyes of Yahweh.
And Ehud died.
3e 4B 19
4
וַיִּמְכְּרֵ֣ם יְהוָ֗ה בְּיַד֙ יָבִ֣ין מֶֽלֶךְ־כְּנַ֔עַן אֲשֶׁ֥ר מָלַ֖ךְ בְּחָצ֑וֹר
וְשַׂר־צְבָאוֹ֙ סִֽיסְרָ֔א וְה֥וּא יוֹשֵׁ֖ב בַּחֲרֹ֥שֶׁת הַגּוֹיִֽם
2 And Yahweh sold them by the hand of Jabin, king of Canaan, who reigned in Chatsor.
And the chief of their host was Sisera, and he inhabited Xarosheth of the nations.
3e 4B 22
18
וַיִּצְעֲק֥וּ בְנֵֽי־יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל אֶל־יְהוָ֑ה
כִּ֠י תְּשַׁ֨ע מֵא֤וֹת רֶֽכֶב־בַּרְזֶל֙ ל֔וֹ וְ֠הוּא לָחַ֞ץ אֶת־בְּנֵ֧י יִשְׂרָאֵ֛ל בְּחָזְקָ֖ה עֶשְׂרִ֥ים שָׁנָֽה
3 And the children of Israel cried out to Yahweh,
for he had nine hundred chariot of iron, and he kept a grip on the children of Israel resolutely twenty years.
3c 4C 12
27
וּדְבוֹרָה֙ אִשָּׁ֣ה נְבִיאָ֔ה אֵ֖שֶׁת לַפִּיד֑וֹת
הִ֛יא שֹׁפְטָ֥ה אֶת־יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל בָּעֵ֥ת הַהִֽיא
4 And Deborah, a woman, a prophet, the wife of Lapidoth,
she judged Israel at that time.
3d 4B 13
11
וְ֠הִיא יוֹשֶׁ֨בֶת תַּֽחַת־תֹּ֜מֶר דְּבוֹרָ֗ה בֵּ֧ין הָרָמָ֛ה וּבֵ֥ין בֵּֽית־אֵ֖ל בְּהַ֣ר אֶפְרָ֑יִם
וַיַּעֲל֥וּ אֵלֶ֛יהָ בְּנֵ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל לַמִּשְׁפָּֽט
5 ~ And she settled under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and the house of God in mount Ephraim,
and to her the children of Israel came up for judgment.
3c 4B 25

וַתִּשְׁלַ֗ח וַתִּקְרָא֙ לְבָרָ֣ק בֶּן־אֲבִינֹ֔עַם מִקֶּ֖דֶשׁ נַפְתָּלִ֑י

6 And she sent and she called for Baraq, child of Abinoam from Qedesh Naphtali,
and said to him, Has not Yahweh the God of Israel commanded, Go and draw out by mount Tabor, and take with you ten thousand men, from the children of Naphtali and from the children of Zebulun.
3e 4C 20
50
וּמָשַׁכְתִּ֨י אֵלֶ֜יךָ אֶל־נַ֣חַל קִישׁ֗וֹן אֶת־סִֽיסְרָא֙ שַׂר־צְבָ֣א יָבִ֔ין וְאֶת־רִכְבּ֖וֹ וְאֶת־הֲמוֹנ֑וֹ
וּנְתַתִּ֖יהוּ בְּיָדֶֽךָ

וַיֹּ֤אמֶר אֵלֶ֙יהָ֙ בָּרָ֔ק אִם־תֵּלְכִ֥י עִמִּ֖י וְהָלָ֑כְתִּי
וְאִם־לֹ֥א תֵלְכִ֛י עִמִּ֖י לֹ֥א אֵלֵֽךְ
8 And Baraq said to her, If you go with me, then I will go,
and if you do not go with me, I will not go.

10
וַתֹּ֜אמֶר הָלֹ֧ךְ אֵלֵ֣ךְ עִמָּ֗ךְ אֶ֚פֶס כִּי֩ לֹ֨א תִֽהְיֶ֜ה תִּֽפְאַרְתְּךָ֗ עַל־הַדֶּ֙רֶךְ֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר אַתָּ֣ה הוֹלֵ֔ךְ כִּ֣י בְֽיַד־אִשָּׁ֔ה יִמְכֹּ֥ר יְהוָ֖ה אֶת־סִֽיסְרָ֑א
וַתָּ֧קָם דְּבוֹרָ֛ה וַתֵּ֥לֶך עִם־בָּרָ֖ק קֶֽדְשָׁה
9 And she said, Going, I will go with you, but it is not that it will not be your adornment over the way that you would walk, for by the hand of woman Yahweh will sell Sisera.
And Deborah arose and she went with Baraq toward Qedesh.
3c 4C 41
14
וַיַּזְעֵ֨ק בָּרָ֜ק אֶת־זְבוּלֻ֤ן וְאֶת־נַפְתָּלִי֙ קֶ֔דְשָׁה וַיַּ֣עַל בְּרַגְלָ֔יו עֲשֶׂ֥רֶת אַלְפֵ֖י אִ֑ישׁ

וַיֵּ֣ט אָהֳל֔וֹ עַד־אֵל֥וֹן בְּצַעֲנַנִּ֖ים אֲשֶׁ֥ר אֶת־קֶֽדֶשׁ
11 And Xeber the Kenite had separated himself from the Kenites, from the children of Xobab, brother-in-law of Moses,

וַיַּגִּ֖דוּ לְסִֽיסְרָ֑א
כִּ֥י עָלָ֛ה בָּרָ֥ק בֶּן־אֲבִינֹ֖עַם הַר־תָּבֽוֹר

that Baraq child of Abinoam had gone up mount Tabor.

וַיַּזְעֵ֨ק סִֽיסְרָ֜א אֶת־כָּל־רִכְבּ֗וֹ תְּשַׁ֤ע מֵאוֹת֙ רֶ֣כֶב בַּרְזֶ֔ל וְאֶת־כָּל־הָעָ֖ם אֲשֶׁ֣ר אִתּ֑וֹ
מֵחֲרֹ֥שֶׁת הַגּוֹיִ֖ם אֶל־נַ֥חַל קִישֽׁוֹן
13 And Sisera appealed to all his chariot, nine hundred chariot of iron, and all the people that were were with him,

וַתֹּאמֶר֩ דְּבֹרָ֨ה אֶל־בָּרָ֜ק ק֗וּם כִּ֣י זֶ֤ה הַיּוֹם֙ אֲשֶׁר֩ נָתַ֨ן יְהוָ֤ה אֶת־סִֽיסְרָא֙ בְּיָדֶ֔ךָ הֲלֹ֥א יְהוָ֖ה יָצָ֣א לְפָנֶ֑יךָ
וַיֵּ֤רֶד בָּרָק֙ מֵהַ֣ר תָּב֔וֹר וַעֲשֶׂ֧רֶת אֲלָפִ֛ים אִ֖ישׁ אַחֲרָֽיו
14 And Deborah said to Baraq, Arise, for this is the day that Yahweh will give Sisera into your hand. Has not Yahweh gone out before you?
And Baraq descended from mount Tabor, and ten thousand men after him.
3c 4C 37
20
וַיָּ֣הָם יְ֠הוָה אֶת־סִֽיסְרָ֨א וְאֶת־כָּל־הָרֶ֧כֶב וְאֶת־כָּל־הַֽמַּחֲנֶ֛ה לְפִי־חֶ֖רֶב לִפְנֵ֣י בָרָ֑ק
וַיֵּ֧רֶד סִֽיסְרָ֛א מֵעַ֥ל הַמֶּרְכָּבָ֖ה וַיָּ֥נָס בְּרַגְלָֽיו

וּבָרָ֗ק רָדַ֞ף אַחֲרֵ֤י הָרֶ֙כֶב֙ וְאַחֲרֵ֣י הַֽמַּחֲנֶ֔ה עַ֖ד חֲרֹ֣שֶׁת הַגּוֹיִ֑ם

וְסִֽיסְרָא֙ נָ֣ס בְּרַגְלָ֔יו אֶל־אֹ֣הֶל יָעֵ֔ל אֵ֖שֶּׁת חֶ֣בֶר הַקֵּינִ֑י
כִּ֣י שָׁל֗וֹם בֵּ֚ין יָבִ֣ין מֶֽלֶךְ־חָצ֔וֹר וּבֵ֕ין בֵּ֖ית חֶ֥בֶר הַקֵּינִֽי
17 And Sisera withdrew on his own feet into the tent of Jeal, the wife of Xeber the Kenite,
for there was peace between Jabin king of Chatsor, and the house of Xeber the Kenite.
3e 4C 19
18
וַתֵּצֵ֣א יָעֵל֮ לִקְרַ֣את סִֽיסְרָא֒ וַתֹּ֣אמֶר אֵלָ֗יו סוּרָ֧ה אֲדֹנִ֛י סוּרָ֥ה אֵלַ֖י אַל־תִּירָ֑א

21 And Jeal, the wife of Xeber took a tent peg from the tent, and put the drill in her hand, and came to him muffled, and stuck the tent peg into his temple. She put it down into the earth.

22 And behold, Baraq pursued Sisera, and Jeal came out from the encounter and she said to him, Come and I will show you the person whom you seek.
And he came to her, and behold, Sisera fallen down dead and the tent peg in his temple.

Nehemiah 7

Knocking off another long chapter. The numbers here do not agree with those in Ezra 2. One can only imagine the process, the copying, the registration, the counting, and so on. How many variations of a document happen today?  There are many differences: in counts, names, phrasing, and spellings, additional lines and deletions. But one list is clearly related to the other. The music of verse 6 is not the same as verse 1 of Ezra, but verse 7 agrees with verse 2 of Ezra 2. Divergences magnify beginning at verse 23. Comparing with the music is difficult for the eye. If they were sung together, the differences would be obvious.


Nehemiah 7 Fn Min Max Syll
וַיְהִ֗י כַּאֲשֶׁ֤ר נִבְנְתָה֙ הַחוֹמָ֔ה וָאַעֲמִ֖יד הַדְּלָת֑וֹת

1 And it happened that as the wall was built and I had installed the gateways,
and had conscripted the gatekeepers and the singers and the Levites,

כִּי־הוּא֙ כְּאִ֣ישׁ אֱמֶ֔ת וְיָרֵ֥א אֶת־הָאֱלֹהִ֖ים מֵרַבִּֽים
2 That I gave Hanani my brother and Hananiah chief of the temple precincts commission over Jerusalem,
for he was as person, truthful, and he feared God above many.

וָאֹמַ֣ר לָהֶ֗ם לֹ֣א יִפָּֽתְח֞וּ שַׁעֲרֵ֤י יְרוּשָׁלִַ֙ם֙ עַד־חֹ֣ם הַשֶּׁ֔מֶשׁ וְעַ֨ד הֵ֥ם עֹמְדִ֛ים יָגִ֥יפוּ הַדְּלָת֖וֹת וֶאֱחֹ֑זוּ
וְהַעֲמֵ֗יד מִשְׁמְרוֹת֙ יֹשְׁבֵ֣י יְרוּשָׁלִַ֔ם אִ֚ישׁ בְּמִשְׁמָר֔וֹ וְאִ֖ישׁ נֶ֥גֶד בֵּיתֽוֹ
3 And I said to them, let the gates of Jerusalem not be opened until the sun is warm, and while they were standing by, let them put trunk limbs in the gateways and hold them fast,
and have the inhabitants of Jerusalem stand as guards, each in his watch and each in front of his house.

and there were no houses built.

and I found the record of the genealogy of those who came up in the beginning, and I found inscribed within it,
