Was just working my way through Prov. 12:19


`rq,v'( !Avl. h['yGIr>a;-d[;w> d[;_l' !AKTi tm,a/-tp;f.(



Looked up h['yGIr>a; in the Lexicon Browser: BDB (Full) and noted the following problems:


1. Right-click, look up lemma in Lexicon Browser brings up 8911 [g:rŮ, n.m. a moment instead of the verb 8910 [g:r'. HALOT works properly here.
2. In the entry for 8910 [g:r' BDB reads "...Hiph. denom. from [b;r, make a twinkling, ...
I don't have my paper BDB close at hand, but surely [b;r, is a typo for [g:rŮ,

Could anybody verify that for me?

Just looked this up and [b;r, is a typo for [g:rŮ,..

Dr. Brown,
You have indeed found another BDB typo.
There are literally thousands of typos in BDB in BW. I've been sending a list of errors almost weekly to dberrors@bibleworks.com.
Eventually someone will take a look at these.
In Christ,
Mark Eddy

Thanks for the heads up, Mark.
I primarily use HALOT, so I don't have my nose in BDB all the time.
Thanks also for taking the time to document the typos. That's tedious work, I know.

The reference Jer. 21:11 should read Jer. 2:11
