Psalm 24 and its Greek Septuagint translation the LXX Psalm 23. And thus we can more easily appreciate how Hebrew Bible here writes of world that is FLOATING upon waters, the TEBEL. We thus consider also mention of TEBEL in PSALM 93, according to New and Modernised Translation by Pasi K Pohjala (published in Verre et Bible 2, 2008, pp.361-362) “93:1 God in his reigning clothes the valley of signs (AT) by doubling (LBS LBS), God is girded with strength and increases, this world of vessels even if shaking is true (NKWN) 93:2 the cup of qualities (KS AK) is prepared of Az (in this Psalm compared Yz, Az and hTAzR) from this space are its signs (AT) 93:3 God’s water fountains and rivers (NHR) have produced prophesies (NSA) the water fountains have prophesied- such voices from water-bowls! The water fountains prophesy something that are like from waters (three times NSA NhRWT !!!) 93:4 with the voices of magnifying, they reflect like in balls (DR) the multiplied vision from waters (MSBRJ-JM the SBR also in Gen 40 of Jacob’s vision of SBR in Egypt, usually rendered in LXX manner of alimentation but more meaning multitude) these I will reflect like by ball, by increases given by God 93:5 Your increasing vessels giving testimonies (YD has meanings of increase and giving testimony) are skilfully making increases (AMN artist, like the Greek TEKHNE and here cf. YD and Meod), to Your House come the Vision appearances of Holiness (cf Greek DOKSA that is also visual appearance), in the stretching from waters (LARK JMJM !!)” Here we notice Hebrew Bible writing JHWH YZ HTAZR AP TKWN TBL BL TMWT NKWN Notable is writing of ZRAP TKWN TBL, where is noticed how JHWH is girded with strength and JHWH gathered and collected; and Seraph established world- something like world on vessel. This describes nicely floating upon waters, what is gathered and collected floats upon waters of vessel. Such world floating is also shaky, but anyhow true. Importantly, this Psalm 93 thrice writing NSA NHRWT clearly emphasise the NSA; this word has important meaning of “carry” and also meaning of “prophesy”; Greek here emphatically writes of carrying EP-AIROO in stating EPEERAN OI POTAMOI KURIE EPEERAN OI POTAMOI. The floating “earthly” that is seen through water-bowl, magnified, is clearly carried by these waters, and the very phenomenon of floating being really miraculous, the phenomenon of floating is indeed very prophetical. Important seafaring traditions are written in Isaiah 33-34, and we now notice first Isa 33:21 and 34:1 stating “for there the Lord in his greatness shall be for us like a region of rivers, of broad streams, where no floating vessel can sail and no mighty craft can travel (BL TLK BW ANJ SWT WZJ ADJR LA JYBRNW) - their ropes are slack, they cannot steady the sockets of their masts, they cannot spread a sail…approach, O nations, and listen, give heed O peoples! Let the earth and those in it hear, the world (WMLAH TBL) and what it brings forth” (the Tanakh translation). Here is the TBL importantly written in description of floating vessels. The Isa 33:8 also emphasises words of rising, QWM and RWM and the 33:10 notices TEBEL here in Isaiah. In the Greek translation 33:10 we read of NUN, noticing NUN ANASTEESOMAI, LEGEI KURIOS, NUN DOKSASTHESOMAI, NUN HUPSOTHESOMAI where in this divine speech (LEGEI KURIOS) is the NUN emphasised- we hear reference to Egyptian NUN water serpent deity. Notable is also the 33:21 stating that TO ONOMA KURIOU MEGA HUMIN TOPOS where Greek translation notices question of divine Name and writes TOPOS that exactly contains the T-P (or T-B) letters now studied- apparently is thus described divine name where T-P is contained- this is exactly here studied tradition of TB deity (snake deity). Also in important seafaring description in Ezekiel 27 we find interesting references to floating. The Ezekiel 27:28 writes namely in Hebrew Bible that LQWL ZYQT HBLJK JRYSW MGRSWT In the current Study we here below shall more notice these emphasised RS words JRYSW MGRSWT, that they are important words of seafaring life that describe how boats are in anchorage tossing and shaking much (RYS), so well known for every sailor, and the MGRSWT noticing the safe anchorages and safe harbours (cf. Mursaha in Surat HUD and Mersa coastal harbour cities- for more discussion, see below). Here we notice LQWL ZYQT HBLJK where also THB is written, somewhat appropriately with word HBL noticing these captains, they apparently being important for keeping boats and ships afloat. We especially notice in Hebrew script here written THB and the ZYQ, because MZQJ ARZ in 1 Samuel 2:8 (see more in the next discussion) describe inflated devices upon which earth is floating-thus this statement notoriously writes TB (the TB serpent deity) and miraculous floating: the TB MAKES FLOATING. Below we shall comment the SYR word of tossing and shaking with “Following the Tanakh translation we then question HOW such isles and islands might tremble or quake? Obvious answer of course is that they look somehow like seen from a boat- seen from the quaking boat the islands indeed seem quite much trembling (even if the islands themselves are strong and stable), the quaking and tossing of those islands is caused by the quaking of place of observer, that the islands are seen from a boat or ship that is in midst of sea quaking and tossing.” Important description of TBL is also found in statement of 1 Samuel 2:8 that is in Hebrew Bible KJ LJHWH MZQJ ARZ WJST YLJHM TBL This is clear statement that God has set TEBEL upon these MZQJ. This word MZQJ refers apparently also in the book 1 Samuel to hollow vessels or blown vessels. Being hollow, these hollow bowls also floated upon waters. Well known technology from ancient times in Assyria was building floating rafts supported with numerous blown animal hides or skins; thus making floating with help of such full blown objects was certainly well known to this culture at least in the times of writing the book now called 1 Samuel. From ancient descriptions are known also very large rafts of such design, carrying even heavier cargos. Thus is the TEBEL world here represented as floating supported with such hollow objects MZQJ. And glass, especially blown glass was later noticed with ZQ and ZKKJT words. Generally, ZJQ notices blasts of wind and generally winds (and also meteors) (J 396), and ZQJA noticing containers such as skins for wine (J 397) the comprehension is understandable- MZQJ are apparently hollow objects, blown animal bladders, well known floating aides in ancient world. This is nice description of improved ancient technology of building floating rafts. And the preceding discussion of Ezekiel 27:28 discussed LQWL ZYQT HBLJK JRYSW MGRSWT where THB refers to TB serpent deity and ZYQ how that Serpent deity causes floating. And in traditions of 2 Kings 6:4-7 is describes how Elisha and many of his disciples went to Jordan to cut timber; but one of them was so unlucky that the iron head of axe he was wielding, fell into the water. But miraculously prophet Elisha then could rescue that unlucky man, by making that iron axe head to float (WJZP HBRZL and in Greek: EPEPOLASEN TO SIDEERION) so that he could reach to that. Now the ZWP word apparently resembles the TWB and TB (especially noticing developments of dialects, in different places and across much time), and in Hebrew Bible the ZWP exactly notices to flow, overflow and to float (BDB 847, the article also notices Arabic TWP rafts; the tafa notices many meanings of going, travelling and moving, and noun tauf notices rafts (671)). The Hebrew WJZP HBRZL thus is interesting description of FLOATING. But in Biblical context this description in 2 Kings 6:4-7 actually includes smaller pun- because Barzillai and Kimham were in old times important ferrymen of ferries across Jordan river and in that old context BARZEL/BARZILLAI surprisingly refers to specialist of technologies of floating. I have written of this important detail of Israelite history recently in “Part Nine. Ferries of Jordan: Barzillai and Kimham in 2 Samuel 19 in my Commentary to Book of NAHUM, the Book: Verre et Bible NINE Bible, Boats and Divers. Gaulos Ships GOLA Settlements, Reqem Nabatean Trade Empire of Purple Argaman, Raising Dead by Resuscitation, and Capernaum (Kefer Nahum) Seafaring (May 2011), pp. 43-50. Especially was discussed 2 Samuel 19:32-40 where is described travel across Jordan and notices how Barzillai the Gileadite was therefore specialist: the 19:32 describes how Barzillai the Gileadite helped the king to travel across Jordan river, so that this Barzillai was specialist of travelling across waters. In this text, I noticed details that actually the KIMHAM is rather the title “captain” or “chief ferryman” for this prominent Barzillai (this much clarified Book of Nahum, because thus was found K-NHM, this clarifying much also doings of NAHUM in captaining, and this was also compared with Egyptian noun MHNTY for ferryman, and ferryboat MHNT). Thus this 2 Kings 6:4-7 in writing WJZP HBRZL apparently includes nice pun of Biblical reading: Barzillai was then recently famous chief ferryman in Jordan ferries and thus specialist of floating devices. And importantly Hebrew ZWP noticing floating so clearly resembles the TB and TWB that now is discussed; power of floating, power of making to float. The book of 2 Kings 10:6-7 writes notorious statement HTWB BYJNJK YSH WJKTB ALJHM Here we may read also YSHWJ; and allusion to ELOHIM (Jod and Waw letters) finding that HTWB BYJNJK YSHWJ KTB ALJHM Here is notably described that “the TWB snake is made, in your observation, similarly with the ELOHIM Snake” This reading is well motivated reading the KTB (usu. KATABA, to write) as K-TWB, motivated here because HTWB is mentioned; and the ALJHM alludes to Elohim God. This discussion also notices some sayings of TBL with Teth written, because these words exactly are connected with waters and other liquids with meanings of dip and bathe (BDB 371) and meanings dip and immersion for purification are centrally important later (J 517); these meanings are apparently important descriptions that something is in waters or in liquid but not there sunken or submerged, and thus quite relevant for discussions concerning floating and religious rituals concerned with the mysterious floating. Important is also to notice that Arabic dabala means to become dry, dry up (355) thus somehow summarising how dry world emerges (such as TEBEL, dry earth, arises from waters, like in Genesis 1-2, the TBL with Teth written noticing immersing and bathing. It is worth noticing that dabl in Arabic means mother-of-pearl). Numeri 19:17-18 writes WLQHW LTMA MYPR SRPT HHTAT WNTN YLJW MJM HJJM AL KJL WLQH AZWB WTBL BMJM AJS THWR WHZH YL HAHL Current study now considers much the SERAPHIM and indeed in this purification ritual important is now the ashes of the SRP or the ashes of the Red Heifer (Num 19:2ff). Then is noticed taking some hyssop and TBL dipping that in those water where ashes of Red Heifer were diluted. Thus renders Tanakh “some of the ashes from the fire of cleansing shall be taken for the unclean person, and fresh water shall be added to them in a vessel. A person who is clean shall take hyssop, dip it in the water, and sprinkle on the tent and on all the vessels and people who were there.” Important now is statement for WTBL BMJM because thus is described some “dipping”. Usually we of course know that most of the herbs being quite leafy do float upon surface of waters, and thus here described TBL BMJM is not so much of “sinking” but rather “immersing” or “floating”. Very important here of course is to consider that in these waters had been diluted some ashes of Red Heifer, YPR SARAPH. Thus is here the SARAPH connected here with waters and immersion, and “floating”. This TBL (with Teth written) thus for ancient readers was one very important reference when thinking of the TBL world (with Taw written): indeed, the TBL world lead thoughts to TBL floating. We concisely refer also to Job 9:31 that states “you would dip me in muck” (Tanakh), Hebrew Bible here stating that AZ BSHT TTBLNJ especially the SHH in Hebrew often describing swimming, so that this text not so much describes sinking into waters but more notices dipping and something like swimming that is also floating upon waters. We begin shortly reminding Readers that in the mythological ancestry of descendants of Cain, we know mentions of TUBAL-CAIN in Genesis 5. It is now very noteworthy that Genesis 5:22 notices that among descendants of CAIN, the TUBAL-CAIN son of Lamech and his wife Zillah, is presented as specialist of metal producing, handling of copper and iron, thus in Gen 5:22 “as for Zillah, she bore TUBAL-CAIN, who forged all implements of copper and iron” (Tanakh) This is based on Hebrew Bible, stating WZLH GM HWA JLDH AT TWBL QJN LTS KL HRS NHST WBRZL This ancient statement also deserves to be compared with already discussed 2 Kings 6 noticing miracle by prophet Elisha WJZP HBRZL, because both mention Barzel and ZWP or TWBL “Tubal”. Here discussed statement in Gen 5 apparently also notices KL NHST or copper vessels; but also here is worth remembering that NHS also notices snakes, thus in Hebrew Bible quite usually; and this very old statement of Gen 5 noticing TWBL and NHST also refers that TWB also designates snakes and serpents. But we notice interesting detail that TUBAL is also a descendant of Japheth, thus notices Gen 10 (and 1 Chron 1) and there mentioned Javan, Tubal and Meshech ALSO appears, notoriously, in Ezekiel 27 in the prophesy of Tyre where Javan, Tubal and Meshech are noticed as tradespeople trading with Tyre (Ezekiel 27:13), this much emphasising connecting this Tubal with seafaring and overseas trading. Septuagint translation tradition, however, writes in Gen 5:22 of THOBEL and states here SELLA DE ETEKEN KAI AUTEE TON THOBEL KAI EEN SFUROKOPOS KHALKEUS KHALKOU KAI SIDEEROU The Greek name THOBEL usual in Septuagint tradition notices THOB-EL, that is, the God THOB. The TUBAL CAIN, the Greek THOBEL, represents in this concise mythological lineage of CAIN according to Genesis 5 thus very important ancient true high technology, techniques of metal handling, producing iron and copper products. That role is very central in ancient cultures, ability of producing copper and iron products; and for this role is specifically important ability to master use of fire, melting processes and melting furnaces, and knowledge of art of smith. TUBAL CAIN (THOBEL) thus was important specialist of use of fire in ancient cultures. One example relevant for this clearly ancient reference to THOB-EL specialist of producing copper and iron products may be found in numerous archaeological finds in Cyprus that was famous for its plentiful copper production; also religion of snakes and snake charming are there very well attested. Palestinian plentiful copper mines in Timna near to Salt Sea were ancient important Egyptian copper mines. We emphasise that in Biblical Hebrew the word NAHAS both refers to snake and copper, thus in widely currently accepted scholarly Bible comprehending. Verre et Bible 14 by Pasi K Pohjala Feb 2013. We read in Psalm 14 that AJN ALHJM HSHJTW HTYJBW YLJLH AJN YSH TWB JHWH MSMJM HSQJP YL BNJ ADM LRAWT HJS MSKJL DRS AT ALHJM First is noticed ELOHIM and then HSH leads to considering NHS Hebrew usual word for “snake”. So is continued in writing WHT, especially because the ending Nun and Waw are in many scripts quite similar, thus reminded of NHT and thus NHS snakes. Then follows TYJB that is thus connected with such references and allusions to NHS snakes. The ELOHIM here specifically designates God and then are thus written allusions to NHS snakes and also the TYJB. Thereafter is interestingly written of YSH TWB JHWH; the Tetragrammaton thus is connected with TWB, and importantly the YSH reads of NAHAS backwards: JHWH, TWB and Nahas. Notoriously also is written of LRAWT HJS where is seeing and allusion to NHS the Nahas serpents noticed. Thereafter in this Psalm 14 we read AT ALHJM HKL SR JHDW NALHW AJN YSH TWB AJN GM AHD Thus is the YSH TWB here emphasised another time; and reading backwards we find NJAHS and TWB here written, referring to NAHAS serpent. Then we also find YZT YNJ TBJSW KJ JHWH MHSHW Also here we find TB written with Tetragrammaton and MHSHW alluding to NHS; the ending Waw is so similar to ending Nun so that backwards reading finds NHS, and the MHS can include MN-NHS because Nun is often assimilated, so that NHS is specially emphasised here. Notice here especially well that here the Greek tradition of Romans 3:13-18 makes very interesting addition to the Greek rendering of Psalm 14:3- that text being notorious description of SNAKES TAFOS ANEOGMENOS O LARUKS AUTOON TAIS GLOOSSAIS AUTOON EDOLIOUSAN IOS ASPIDOON HUPO TA KHEILEE AUTOON OON TO STOMA ARAS KAI PIKRIAS GEMEI OKSEIS OI PODES AUTOON EKKHEAI HAIMA SUNTRIMMA KAI TALAIPOORIA EN TAIS ODOIS AUTOON KAI ODON EIREENEES OUK EGNOOSAN These words are in Septuagint tradition found in renderings Psalm 5:10, 9:28, 35:2, Isa 59:7-8 and Psalm 139:4 and in tradition of Paul’s Letter to the Romans 3:13-18 are added to Greek translation of this Psalm 14:3. This emphasises comprehending here importantly description of snakes, the IOS ASPIDOON being especially clear mention of poisons of snakes. This Midrashic tradition presented in Letter to the Romans 3:13-18 importantly emphasises in this Psalm 14 comprehension of Snakes. The Book of Isaiah is in Old Testament notorious, we now find written in Isa 44:19 WLA JSJB AL LBW WLA DYT WLA TBWNH LAMR HZJW SRPTJ BMW AS WAP APJTJ YL GHLJW LHM AZLH BSR WAKL WJTRW LTWYBH We now consider the details of this statement- we find here notoriously mentions of famous E
