Your grammatical questions:
1. Shwuatekh hazeh, $B)TK HZH ,is indeed a mistake
of an an ancient scribe since the modifier should
have been in the F. as you noted.
2. Hishbatanu, H$B(TNW ,is correct. Two
men are addressing a female: F single form in
the Hiphil perfect, plus the attached pronominal
suffix for plural.
Dear B-Hebrew, Last night I read a couple of chapters of Joshua for leisure, and there are a couple of things that I noticed that I wanted to ask about: (1) Although $BW(H /shevu'ah/ [ùáåòä] is feminine, it is modified with the masculine ZH /zeh/ [æä] in 2:17: ðÀ÷ÄéÌÄí àÂðÇçÀðåÌ îÄùÌÑÀáËòÈúÅêÀ äÇæÌÆä àÂùÑÆø äÄùÑÀáÌÇòÀúÌÈðåÌ NQYM )NXNW M$B(TK HZH )$R H$B(TNW Come to think of it, why is H$B(tnW masculine, when it is talking about Rahab? (2) Is there any reason why the NIV footnote says that the word ZWNH /zonah/ [æåðä] can be translated as "innkeeper"? Thanks, Jason
