Biblical Languages 301 Guidelines

This is where we come to delve into the biblical text. Theology is not our foremost thought, but we realize it is something that will be dealt with in nearly every conversation. Feel free to use the original languages to make your point (meaning Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic). This is an exegetical discussion area, so please limit topics to purely biblical ones.

This is not the section for debates between theists and atheists. While a theistic viewpoint is not required for discussion in this area, discussion does presuppose a respect for the integrity of the Biblical text (or the willingness to accept such a presupposition for discussion purposes) and a respect for the integrity of the faith of others and a lack of an agenda to undermine the faith of others.

  • Hated? Despised?

    Scripture says (unless my memory is completely gone) that God hated Esau and later that Esau hated his birthright. Are these the same word?

    Different words:

    Malachi 1:3, וְאֶת עֵשָׂו שָׂנֵאתִי, "v'et Eisav saneiti"

    Verb "sanei" = to hate, dislike, detest, abhor.


    Genesis 25:34, וַיִּבֶז עֵשָׂו אֶת הַבְּכֹרָה, "vayivez Eisav et habechorah".

    Verb "buz"= despise, disdain, mock at, scorn, treat with contempt, contemn.



    In Genesis 25 it is not written that "God hated Esau", but: v. 28,
    And Isaac loved Esau because [his] game was in his mouth, but Rebecca loved Jacob.
