Dear list-members,

In the mentioned verses I count 12 QATALs, 1 WEQATAL  and 3 WAYYIQTOLs. I
cannot find any clue in the context suggesting that the events mantioned by
the prophet is past; i.e. that reference time comes before speech time.
However, I find many clues that they are future; i. e. reference time comes
after speech time. How would the particular model for Hebrew verbs that you
believe in, direct you in the translation of these verses? In other words,
how would you translate the verses?
