Dear B-Hebrew haburim:
While reading through Isaiah 14, I question if the
last five words in verse 4 are Aramaic? Do they
make sense as Aramaic?
The dictionaries I consulted carry only those
Aramaic terms that are found in the recognized
Aramaic sections of Tanakh. Four of the terms are
not found in those sections. The last term is
happax legomenon in Hebrew where neither the
context nor a possible root are a clear help to
decipher a possible meaning. However in Aramaic it
looks as if it means "gilded".
)YK same as Hebrew?
$BT to take captive, to stop?
NG# a harsh one? harsh actions?
$BTH same as $BT above?
MDHBH gilded one?
