Where did I get the translation and cantillation from for Matthew

Astonishing - I can find the provenance of my version of Matthew 5:1-12 on my own blog! What a fickle thing memory is. I really am a Turing machine and when the tape gets too long, I can't remember what I have done.

So having done that, what's next? I thought about comparing beatitudes in Tanakh with those in the New Testament. (I better look and see if I already have!)

I did a few but it was hardly comprehensive. Here are all the beatitudes I can find in my data. There are more perhaps than expected. Some of these are quoted directly in the NT, e.g. Romans 4:7-8. There are 7 new ones in Revelation. James 1:12 (perhaps citing Daniel 12:12) and James 1:25 are examples. In the gospels outside of Matthew, John 12:13. Of course there are many in Luke. And four more in Matthew. It might not be a bad place to start building a NT database. The KJV renders both μακάριος and εὐλογέω as blessed.

Deuteronomy 33FnMinMaxSyll
