Isaiah 51:1— Hearken to me, ye that follow (רדפי) after righteousness, ye that seek (מבקשי) the Lord. The verb רדף is closer to Lt. prosequor and persequor then διώκω.

Isaiah 56:7 זבחיהם לרצון על מזבחי their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar The word רצון derives from the compound προδέχομαι; take, accept, receive. Cf. πρόσδεξις; acceptance. This is proven in Ezekiel 20:41 in which ארצה אתכם in Greek version is προσδέξομαι ὑμᾶς "I will accept you". The ...

Isaiah 22:22 The key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open. Revelation 3:7 he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; (Cyrus did). Isaiah 45:1 Thus...

Re: Kings & Isaiah

Isa 44:27 That saith to the deep (צולה) be dry (חרבי), and I will dry up (אוביש) thy rivers. (נהרתיך). They are two distinct Hebrew words translating into "Dry" and the word translated into "deep" is not the same Hebrew in Gen 1:2 translated into deep. This a problem with the English translations, d...

Re: Kings & Isaiah

Deu 33:10 Jacob thy judgments משפתיך _ δίκαιον σου Israel thy law תורתך _ ἐντολή σου By deriving Torah (תורת) from ἐντολή then the verb ירה would equate with ἐντέλλω; command by word of mouth i.e teach. The word למד matches μανθάνω (ΜΝΘ = למד) "learn" thus תלמיד is a μαθητής 'learner' and תלמוד "Tal...

Re: Kings & Isaiah

Hosea 6:11 concludes with "when I returned the captivity of my people". Ref. Isaiah 45:13/61:1 that directly mention Cyrus outside the so called chronological period of Hezekiah. The opening of Isaiah and Micah concludes they were prophesying between 783 to 687 BCE but why emphasize the Achaemenid P...
