Tyndale House Bulletin

I was impressed by this intro to the greater and lesser traditional markings in the Leningrad codex because I have been working with both Genesis 1 and Jonah 4. Read it and see how clever the scribes were in numbering and annotating their Bibles. 

They processed pairs of words as I did in my search for concordance. My numbers do not agree with the markings of course because I am looking for consonant sequences only. My query does not use the vowels nor does it parse the sentence to see what the subject of the verb is. But the principle is similar, though I was not a scribe but a translator.
