1 Samuel 1:28 -- "I have lent him to the Lord .... He is lent to the Lord"
The first verb Perfect-Hiphil and the second verb Qal-Participle; I sat and
I read and I thought and I looked up and I thought and I read again! I even
read a complex synopsis of Hiphil and was left entirely in the dark about
this. It beats me how we arrive at Lent from Asked/begged. What more can I
say? The REAL issue for me is why not 'NaTaN'. A simple 'give' and be done
And besides all this how can Gesenius and others say 'Lent'. This would
imply that Hannah, at some stage, expects him back, but this was NOT the vow
Am I not learning things correctly or what? I have just began an
intermediate Hebrew book by Ehud Ben Zvi and he does not even mention this
