Scheindlin's remarkable new translation. Scheindlin's activity isn't a sufferer patient yet a defiant guy who eloquently calls for an issue with God.

Place name as to warrant giving each of them the status of an independent lexeme, then the total of the derived lU^ terms - even if the v"p^ II series is excluded - is TT thirteen. It seems to me that this is the correct procedure to follow: although "p!? (colour), ^^ (personal name), and 12^ TT TT * TT (place name) share the same form - and a similar lexicographical r PRIMARY TERMS 51 problem is presented by series such as M33!? j (personal name); fiJIl!? l^ (place name), fl3(1)3t> (frankincense) - each element in the series refers to a different 'reality'; hence they are homophonouSiperhaps etymologically identical but semantically separate lexemes.
DTK appears in texts which are attributed to stages 2, 3 and 4 of biblical Hebrew - that is, the monarchic period, the exilic period, and the post exilic period. "p!? possibly exists in all four stages: this depends on our dating, on other grounds, of Gen. 49:12. "ihW is restricted to the last two periods. Statistically, although all three are the most frequent colour terms in the OT, their number is quite small: in descending order, 13^ appears 24 times, its direct verbal derivatives - two lexemes, a Hif.

Gradwohl organizes OT material under chromatic headings, that is, all words that seem to mean 'red' are grouped together, and those denoting 'white', 'black', are similarly collected and dealt with as a group, from so-called adjectives to verb forms and to place names. In a different chapter he deals with dyes and pigments; and, later still, with the generalization of the material into stages of development. This arrangement seems to me unsatisfactory.
