Before this thread descends into idle speculation and
the inevitable offence (if not incurred already) of
some sort or other can we please, as Maurice already
requested, stick to questions
related to biblical Hebrew.

Perhaps if you were to read and understand this greek
text better Liz it would save you from making such
uninformed gaff as this. Please don't provoke the
entire Christian membership of list with sort of off
topic fable.
