Dear Listees,
Deut 32:41 reads, אָשִׁיב נָקָם לְצָרָי, וְלִמְשַׂנְאַי
אֲשַׁלֵּם 
This may not be new to
many, but I find it interesting that see the last word in the stitch, i.e. אֲשַׁלֵּם , root,שלם  so often used to denote peace is being
used here in totally non-peaceful terms as: “to requite/ revenge, repay”?
What are you thoughts
on this please?
Many thanks,
Philip Engmann
