I saw somewhere in my reading yesterday that there are more psalms. I think it was on wikipedia in the Dead Sea Scrolls entry. Rabbi, what’s the story?
Harold Levine
34:53
I will send everyone the book list again later.
Marilyn Greenberg
37:21
good sound!
Judy Porges Hollander
38:46
good introduction about this in the Alter book
kol
40:01
can you suggest any texts that discuss the poetic forms? ( asking as a poet)
Judy Porges Hollander
40:21
Alter’s book does that
Judy Porges Hollander
40:42
And Richard Levy

43:41
The Hebrew Preposition “l’” alto means “to” or “for” as in given to David or dedicated to David. How does this comport with tradition?
sue ros
44:21
i can’t see anything on harolds screen - can others?
Judy Porges Hollander
44:29
how about the expression zichrona le brachia?
Harold Levine
44:39
Is everyone seeing this on my screen?
Steve Fruh
44:44
Yes, can see Harold's screen
sue ros
44:46

Laurie Krotman
45:07
I can see everything
sue ros
45:18
must be just me
Harold Levine
45:20
Great. Thanks all.
Cindy E Levitz
45:53
can you make it larger, Harold?
Shep Wahnon
45:59
also the Hebrew word Yeshiva, salvation, is literally the Hebrew name for Jesus.
Yael
46:17
I would love to have a discussion about the name - yud he vav he - and its relationship to the Hebrew parallel of the verb "to be" : haya/hove/yihye/havaya.
Sarah Siegel
46:44
Why isn’t glory capitalized?
Harold Levine
47:09
Sarah, it’s name and pronouns - He/Who/His
Betsy Imershein
48:31
my translation doesn’t even include selah
Harold Levine
48:45
Betsy, which translation?
Sarah Siegel
48:50
Thanks, Harold.
Betsy Imershein
49:17
Psalms That Speak to You, Yitzchok Leib Bell
Shep Wahnon
49:31
To figure out what selah means can we look at its shoresh?
Betsy Imershein
49:47
published by Tehillim Today, in Israel
Ellen Poster
49:58
JPS has selah in italics
Harold Levine
50:05
Shep. Look at the Wikipedia article and Alter’s notes. he says that there is no way to determine the etymology.
marsha melnick
50:54
v 6 transl. 1st clause in past tense, what is the tense in Hebrew?
simon & sherri
51:23
as a musician the selah seems to divide sections of the psalm, almost suggesting a musical ‘rest’
Darina Ivanova
51:35
Ve-ata yarum roshi al oyvai sevivotai., pslam 27I suddenly remembered this
Judy Porges Hollander
52:45
reversing vov
Judy Porges Hollander
52:53
it is past tense
Judy Porges Hollander
53:02
because of vov
Sarah Siegel
53:15
And I, remembered while we did 8/Chet: Kumah hashem v’yanusu(sp?) oyvechah — during Torah service if I remember correctly
Harold Levine
53:15
Judy, not so simple, as far as I understand. The tenses in English and Hebrew are not parallel.
Judy Porges Hollander
53:32
I know
Judy Porges Hollander
53:39
but the vov changes the tense
Darina Ivanova
54:25
I checked the translation that is used by the Bulgatrian Orthodox Church and they have just got rid of the Selah.
Betsy Imershein
54:52
So, Darina, it’s like my translation
Judy Porges Hollander
55:59
the tenses are strange in that phrase
Darina Ivanova
56:39
I speak Russian
Laurie Krotman
57:17
I majored I Russian in college and it has present, past and future tenses
Yael
57:38
We can ask Yelena
Judy Porges Hollander
57:59
Levy is more literal in his translation
Yael
59:27
Only the word Ishana has the vav
Sarah Siegel
59:38
Go, Judy!
Sarah Siegel
59:52
(You pointed that out above.)
Sarah Siegel

Why is HIs in His son capitalized?
Darina Ivanova

Sarah Siegel

Marilyn, I think it’s because each line has initial caps.
Marilyn Greenberg
01:04:14
thanks
Harold Levine
01:04:14
Synoptically! I’m on it.
Marilyn Greenberg
01:05:47
What is spiritual message of R. Levy?
Sarah Siegel
01:05:56
I am that I will be.
Sarah Siegel
01:06:13
Oops. Misremembered.
Adria Benjamin
01:06:29
Jerry Herman…I am what I am.
Yael
01:06:44
So y - h - v - h is "a being".

whose was the last translation on the screen?
Harold Levine
01:09:49
Norman Fisher
Judy Porges Hollander
01:10:09
Norman Fischer is wonderful as a humanist. If we have trouble with god issues, he is a good alternati

alternative

Selah - It's a very beautiful word.
Sarah Siegel
01:11:19
I like it best as a homonym. In Hebrew “selah” can be spelled differently and when it is, it means stone.
Sarah Siegel
01:11:40
sol=basket?
Sarah Siegel
01:11:50
(As shores/root)
Sarah Siegel
01:12:21
No, that’s wrong. A shoresh needs three letters, not two, samech and lamed.
Yael
01:12:36
The word Academy does not have a Hebrew version
Sarah Siegel
01:12:45
Machshave
Marilyn Greenberg
01:12:46
Selah may mean forever
Yael
01:12:46
Machshev

I think there’s an academy word for Radio in Hebrew, but everybody uses Radio
Harriet Beckman
01:12:56
Could Selah, if musical, be more like a Greek chorus in the background?
Sarah Siegel
01:14:07
Thank you for more fun.
Judy Papenfus
01:14:24
thank you everyone. such a good class
Betsy Imershein
01:14:36
Thank you everyone - love this class!!
marsha melnick
01:14:37
Thank you everyone!
Darina Ivanova
01:14:38
I suddenly remembered that "electricity" is a made-up word from a Greek root because no lnaguage had a word for it before it was discovered, so most modern languages now have some version of that same word - but for some reason they wanted an entirely separate word in Hebrew.
Marilyn Greenberg
01:14:41
another meaning for selah is to lift up or to exalt
kol
01:14:46
such a gift, thank you
