Dear learned members.

Back on the NUN-SAMECH-HEH verb BUT for a different reason this time.  Is
there really any subtle evidence within the language of hebrew or scripture
to see that where this word is often translated as:TESTING,  PROVING it can
really in practise be seen as TRAINING (not all the time, i remember the
fleece for example) but I also think on Abraham's "test".  As in preparing
the person to be able to go further, in order that he may learn another
lesson, or receive the next set of instructions, or become able to represent
something for future generations.
