I have better things to do than to wade into your posts<quoted text>
Get help in understanding the post. Your quotient deficiency is PART of your problem. Try.
HughBe--Tell me the word that is used for NATION in YOUR Tanach. see passage below.
Frijoles--- I just did
HughBe-- Really? Please be kind and repeat your explanation as I am CONFIDENT that I shall not find it but YOU know your explanation so there should be no problems MON.
Frijoles--- What is GOWY? Goyim means nation plural. IF Israel is a nation, than it could be goy.
HughBe--- Thank you for your explanation. I have noted your IF.
Frijoles---What passage are you referring to?
HughBe--- Your question reflects the teachings received in your religion. I have REPEATED the passage MANY times and yet you ask, what passage?
Here it is again and please tell me the word for NATION.
"And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy NATION. These [are] the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel"
1.Explain what you meant by "none of that has any Hebraic foundation".
2. Are YOU telling me that God Almighty did NOT call Israel GOY?
Frijoles--Part of the problem here is you are forcing 20th century political entities on a manuscript that dealt with tribalism.
HughBe--- Your darkness will be removed as soon as you have answered my questions. Your dodging my questions is part of your problem plus you cleave to POLITICS and DECEIT.
FRijoles--- Hence, the term people is probably more apropro than nation(state)
HughBe--- Tell God that. Tell your rabbis to INSTRUCT God Almighty so that He shall know the more appropriate word to use. CORRECT His foolish and inappropriate words.
If you have a question, state it in single paragraph form and I will try to understand it.
