What your are saying is that S R Driver is generally wrong but you can
glean bits an pieces of worthwhile information from his book? Is this
something like using R. H. Charles ICC commentary on the Apocalypse?
I find your comment on Waltke/O'Connor troubling. I have been told by
numerous students of Waltke from the 70's that he was at that time
infallable :-)))). Now here you go casting doubts in my mind. It was
precisely because I own a copy of Waltke/O'Connor that I asked the
question to begin with.
I will run right down to Half/Price books and pick up this tome. After
all what is $10? Not much risk.
