Don't get you feathers ruffled, it was just a thought, considering the
importance of that particular context to Christian thought. I would suggest
that Shai (or anyone else) check the Jewish translations, DDS etc. I could
be wrong.

Yigal:

Where do you get this ”Christian“ translation? The idea of ”learning“ fits
not only the immediate context, but also the context of the prophets that
while they were teaching, no one was listening. This latter context is
carried also in Jeremiah and Ezekiel.

There is no need to bring in any Messianic understanding.
