Liz,

If you wanted her to marry a particular guy it would be

va'abaqqesh lah 'et ha'ish vehi' lo' haytah lo

  Hi Liz, 

  Does this have the classical sound?

  va'abaqqesh lah 'ish vehi' lo' haytah lo

  Translated literally, "And I sought for her a man, but she became not his."

  Shalom,
  Bryan

    Dear All,
    I've started to study modern Hebrew
    (I"m going to be teaching at the Rothberg School in
    Jerusalem this fall.)
    In modern Hebrew to say "I wanted her to marry him,
    but she didn't," you have to say "I wanted that she will
    marry him, but she did not marry him."
    How would you say this in BH? I can't think of an example.
    Thanks.
    Liz
