Dear Charles:

What???

I don’t think disagreeing with the 
Masoretes equals beating up on them. As for 
my personal opinion, I think they did a 
bang up job with the materials that they 
had. Where I disagree with them, it is 
where I think the traditions for 
pronunciations no longer reflect the 
original pronunciation of Biblical Hebew 
and/or the specific maaning of a passage. 
These traditions predate the Masoretes by 
centuries, some close to a millennium.

Don’t blame the Masoretes for faithfully 
recording something that was not of their 
making.

Karl W. Randolph.
