That's OK. I consider your evaluation
>>It doesn't feel like an awkward translation with many hebreisms as I
would expect from a scholar to scholar translation, rather it feels more
like a modern paraphrase (to use a term in a way Peter Kirk objects
(sorry, Peter ;-( )) targetted at an audience who doesn't know Hebrew.<<
to be, on the whole, positive though I am not too thrilled to hear it
called a paraphrase since I attempt to be fairly faithful to the text
without using cliched phrases. I am more concerned with your statement
>>In v. 20 the noun (M people is omitted.<<
I'll need to take another look at that. I did this while listening to
the Metropolitan Opera production of "Otello" and was becoming somewhat
tired of it by that time. I had intended to go a few verses further in
the translation, but when the opera ended, I sent it.
