View Full Version : Whittaker's BDB Error?

I am not sure who to contact with this so it can be corrected, so I will post it here and hopefully it won't be out of place.

In Isaiah 9:19[20], the word (pardon my transliteration) vera'eb which is B9452 in Whittaker's Revised BDB gives a gloss of "ve hungry." I think it should read "be hungry" as the Qal definition gives.

It's a small matter to be sure, and perhaps it is already known.

The fourth thread from the top of this forum tells where to report "bugs" which would include typos. This forum is not the place, since BW staff doesn't monitor it very closely. Just go to Where to send bug reports (http://www.bibleworks.com/forums/showthread.php?t=344)
and let them know.
By the way, BW is well aware of the fact that BDB has typos. They have contracted help to correct the text. Many of us eagerly await the completion of that project. Though I suspect that once the full BDB is corrected, they may drop Whittaker's abbridged version entirely.

Thanks, I didn't see that somehow.
