Unusual Jewish words in the Bible
« on: March 19, 2010, 10:58:11 AM »
Are there any Jewish Orthodox Christians here?

Can you translate selah, motkim, etc. -- you know.. those Jewish words in the Psalms which 'have no known meaning' according to my Catholic Bible.

Thanks!

Why don't even the Jews know about it?

I mean why aren't you certain? Don't you have a generational line up to the composers of these Psalms.?

Don't you have some kind of handed-down knowledge?

She's not actually Jewish. She's Nazarene, which is actually a Protestant Christian.

She's not actually Jewish a practicing Jew of any faith with any historical continuity which legitimately connects it to antiquity. She's Nazarene, which is actually a Protestant Christian a Torah observant believer in the Messiah a reconstructionist Protestant Christian (Moshiachist?) sect which are warmly referred to as "Bored Baptists with Big Beards."

Nazarene and Alveus Lacuna,

If you want to take issue with my assessment of the Nazarene faith, that's fine, but please stop editing my post. It's getting difficult to tell what I said and what y'all have added.
