An aside on the question to 15.6,
>And he believed <
= and he was believing
This is imperfective here.
PS: Is "counted" also perfective? It might throw some light to know that.
Yes, yaHsheveha is perfective.
...veheemin is imperfective and vayyaHsheveha perfective. These are not
often pointed out or discussed in commentaries, unfortunately, because Gn
15.6 is quite important and the verb tenses quite helpful in overall
What, precisely, is the significance in these tenses? How would you
translate the verse?
