Hi James,


Glad I could help. 


No, the plural forms are "peraqim" and "pesuqim".

Dear YigaI:


I really appreciate your response. Is the Arabic plural form for pasuq -
pawasiq still being used to for "verses" of the TORAH?

Hi James,


"Chapter" is "pereq" and "verse" (in the sense of biblical syntax - not a
verse of poetry) is "pasuq". Both terms are Medieval Hebrew based on
biblical terms, and both are used in modern Hebrew as well.

Greetings everyone:


How do I say "Chapter" and "verse" in Hebrew (Biblical or Modern).
