[b-hebrew] on eternity

Admittedly, my Arabic is very rusty, so can you help my weak memory.

As I understand your post, your dictionary gave the Hebrew translation of
KH'ALAD as HINTZIAKH (הנצח).  Am I correct in that understanding?

In his response post, Fred Burlingame cited Psalm 89, and apparently saw a
relationship between KH'ALAD and XLD (חלד).  But, in my failing memory, I
seem to recall that the equivalent Hebrew letter to the Arabic
transliteration K(H) is כ, not ח.  Am I remembering incorrectly?

Thanks for the help,

Paul Zellmer

with the permission of the moderators, and requiring ABSOLUTE
moderation of all of us, i humbly ask to re-open 
discussion on eternity, in view of the following unexpected 
casual finding from my arabic dictionary:


please, do not invoke such connections as rodent=KHOLED or rust=KHALUDA. 

fred, what do you think of this?
