Just a reminder that Classic Commentaries and Studies on Genesis closes today (Fri, 21 Oct 2011) in Community Pricing at noon PST.

It's currently priced at $40.00.  Is it too late to get it down to get the price down a little bit???

$40 is a whole lot cheaper than $150 which is where it ended up!          I'm staying in!       *smile*

Thank goodness and just in time too!

I'm on Genesis 41:43 and the word 'Abrek!'

The Targums are adament with 'father / tender'. Origen, bless his heart weighed in also and Jerome wasn't far behind.

It'll be interesting to review the discussions. (JPS didn't want to commit matching Cambridge, Continental went with a semitic loan word, and WBC slid through as fast as possible, with the LXX skipping it entirely.)

But by the time you get to Gen 49:22 Targum PJ has moved on, no question to be had.

"God will save his fallen angels and their broken wings He'll mend."

Speiser (AYBC) notes "Abrek. For a probable Egyptian etymology, see JAOS 73 (1953), 146; contrast, however, Vergote, pp. 135 ff. The alleged "kneel down!" of Heb. origin is morphologically untenable and contrary to the Egyptian background of the episode."

EDIT:  I neglected what I had intended to say in the first place — unfortunately we didn't get it down to $30.  If we had had another week we might have succeeded.

Since this went over the top and went to Pre-pub, it's amazing how quickly it is scheduled to be released!  Some have been in the pipeline for ages and still aren't ready.
