I just wonder if anybody could help me out with some insight on the
"rephaim". Are we to think of them as "giants" (as in LXX), as "the weak
ones", "the shades" or the "departed spirits"? Are there any clues to get
from the study of the Hebrew language, or is the word totally out there in
the mist? What would you say is the best translation of the word?
In advance - thank you!

Greetings from Fred, Norway
(new to the list - looking forward to some interesting conversations!)
