    Hmmm. Strange. I checked my display of the verse and the ordering is correct: רעה היה and המדבר אחר. My ordering is not reversed.

    OS is XPsp2 with IE 6.

    EDIT: Just checked the Hebrew text, and the text actually reads the reverse of what I have. What order does KD have in the printed text, the order of the Hebrew text, or the reverse as what I have above?

    Or is it just that I have read wrongly the quoted post?

    The printed edition of K&D has the reverse of what you posted, David.

    OK. Good. KD match the Hebrew text of WTT/BHS then.

    So a restatement of the issue: 1) the display of more than one Hebrew words reverses the display order, eg Exod 3:1 רעה היה but should in fact display as היה רעה to match printed KD and WTT/BHS; 2) Cut-and-paste of KD text displaying as רעה היה is pasted into Word as היה רעה.

    Post Hebrew Problem

    Hi Guys,
    Just to clarify the matter. Attached is a sample of an HTML file from Keil and Delitzsch.

    Open the file in MS Word and you will notice that the highlighted Hebrew words will appear in one order.

    Open the same file in Internet Explorer and you will notice that the word order is reversed.

    This is essentially the problem that Mark Eddy spotted in K&D. In a CHM the Hebrew words behave like they do in Internet Explorer, that is the Hebrew words will appear in the incorrect order.

    I have checked the BW version of K&D against the e-Sword version and this is in fact the case.

    Regards,
    Willem Swanepoel

    My question is to "SCSaunders"

    Where does this text come from and what does it say?

    `T.a'( ha,r>m;-tp;y> hV'ai yKi yTi[.d:y" an"-hNEhi ATv.ai hn"yji-la, jwOqs rm,aYO"w

    Is there a Tina in the Bible?
    The text reminds me of a certain patriarch and his wife.

    I like your creative website.
    Thank you! When roller skating down the middle of the street at high noon, quoting the Good Book through a Mr. Microphone, I reverberate of passel of "daom."s to the mix.

    The website is a work in progress: I'm going through Adobe CS 3 tutorials, so it's slowing down my posts a wee bit. I'm looking to add something new each time.

    My real goal is to saturate Youtube and Google.

    Gday Willem,

    I corrected your html file to how it should be encoded to display correctly. You should be able to see the changes made in the relevant places.

    The printed text of Keil-Delitzsch has the order of the words as in WTT at Exo 3:1 in BW: h[ro hyh and rBdMh rxa. Cutting and pasting between the Keil-Delitzsch module and MS outlook or MS Word changes the order in which the words display on the screen. What I see in your post is the reversed/wrong word order, which I reported. In my last post, since I cut directly from K-D and pasted into this thread, I had difficulty getting the post to look exactly like K-D, since the right-to-left typing between Hebrew words doesn't seem to work exactly as I would have expected.
