>Yitzhak stated:  Finally, it would help to know, when citing translations and comparing them, which translation gives which.  And your transcription of the Hebrew, while consistent, (and we all have Bibles that we can look it up), is still confusing, for example, in using s = Shin and $ = Samekh.  The grave is also commonly used for an Ayin rather than an Aleph as you have it.  The standard transcription scheme for the list is at: http://www.ibiblio.org/bhebrew/  I personally don't mind deviations but the ones I noted above are confusing.    Thank you for the thorough and fact filled explanation Yitzhak. I will take your suggestions for future postings, and observe the list transliteration scheme.
Gene, another tip which would make things easier for other list users: 
Please don't write your replies simply as a continuation of what you are 
replying to, with no new paragraph marking etc, as above. When this 
happens it takes a lot of time to work out what is actual reply, in fact 
the message at first looks like a blank reply sent by accident. Note 
that this list does not support HTML formatting, so any distinctions of 
font, colour etc are lost. I personally like to use the automatic reply 
indentation facility which is in many mail programs, as I have used 
here. If you don't have anything like this available, you need to mark 
your reply in some other clear way.
