I would be interested in getting some feedback from the list on Prov. 14:9.
A:EWILIYM YFLIYC AF$FM WB"YN Y:$FRIYM RFCOWN
My initials thoughts:
Prov. 14:9 The use of AF$FM and RFCOWN in sacrificial contexts (cf. Lev.
1:3; 19:5), seems to suggest that the proverb means Fools mock at
restitution, but among the upright there is acceptance;
1. Is there any validity to the AVs translation of AF$FM as 'sin'?
2. In what sense is there RFCOWN among the Y:$FRIYM?
Perhaps: (1) the upright enjoy Gods favor because they make restitution
when they do wrong, or (2) the upright experience the acceptance of those to
whom they make restitution and thus there is favor 'among' B"YN the upright.
Any corrections on transliteration appreciated.
