Post by Ethan » Tue Jun 05, 2018 5:09 am

Zechariah 12:11
In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.
ביום ההוא יגדל המספד בירושלם כמספד הדד־רמון בבקעת מגדון׃
ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ μεγαλυνθήσεται ὁ κοπετὸς ἐν Ιερουσαλημ ὡς κοπετὸς ῥοῶνος ἐν πεδίῳ ἐκκοπτομένου

O Kopetos = O Capad
ὁ κοπετὸς = ה ספד
* Noun takes the article

κοπετὸς > κπτ > ספד

κοπετὸς : Lamentation with beating of the breast

Isaiah 32:12
They shall lament for the teats, for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine.
על־שדים ספדים על־שדי־חמד על־גפן פריה
καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν μαστῶν κόπτεσθε ἀπὸ ἀγροῦ ἐπιθυμήματος καὶ ἀμπέλου γενήματος

μαστῶν > στῶν > שדים "Breast"

דד , שד "Teat, Breast"
- τιτθός (Tithos) - breast
-στῆθος (stêthos) - breast

Sng 1:2- thy breast is better than wine.

Isaiah 32:11
make you bare, and gird (chagowr) sackcloth upon your loins.

Gen 3:7
they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons

2 Samuel 6:14
And David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.

Zechariah 12:10 ( No piercing, only dancing ).
they shall look upon me whom they have pierced (κατωρχήσαντο )

κατορχέομαι "dance in triumph over"
> ὀρχέομαι "Dance"

Isaiah 13:21
satyrs shall dance there.
ושעירים ירקדו־שם

שעירים - Σατύρων
רקד - דקר

Isaiah 13:21
satyrs shall dance upon.

ירקדו שם - ὀρχή σονται ( ירק - ὀρχ )

The word, Raqad evokes τροχάζω "Run quickly" , ἀράσσω "dash in pieces" and Darak (דָּרַךְ) "tread".

This is Wine stomping

Aristoph. Eccl. 1163
Dance gaily! Iai! Iai! We shall dine! Euoi! Euai! Euai! As for a triumph! Euoi! Euoi! Euai! Euai!
ἰαὶ ἰαὶ εὐαί, εὐαί, εὐαί, εὐαί.

Strab. 10.3
The band of Bacchanalians in celebrating their festivals, and shouting, Evoi, Saboi, Hyes Attes, and Attes Hyes, for these cries belong to the rites of Sabazius and the Great Mother.

יהוה - ΙΟΥΕ - ΕΥΟΙ( Right to Left )

* ὁ = ה
*יהוד = Ιουδ

Strab. 10.3 : Hyes Attes, and Attes Hyes, - ὕης ἄττης ἄττης ὕης.
Ὕη (Yah) - as the god of fertilizing moisture - יה

Ὕη σαβοῖ : יה שוע

σαβοῖ - "Cry"
שוע - "Cry"

Psa 5:2
Hearken unto the voice of my cry (שוע), my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.
-δεήσεως (Deeseos)

Lam 3:8
when I cry and shout(שוע), he shutteth out my prayer
-βοάω

Zechariah 12:2
Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about

'Cup of trembling' - סף־רעל : πρόθυρα σαλευόμενα

סף (Caph) is translated σταθμὸν (Stathmon) "Standing place" in 2 Kings 25:18 and σταθμὸν is a translation
of מלון (Malown ) in Jeremiah 9:2 and מלון (Malown ) is translated into ἀμπέλον (Ampelon) in Isaiah 1:8.

מלון : ἀμπέλον

"cup of trembling" is a wine-vat, all the people are dancing around it * περιοχέομαι
