Qnoma?...definition
#18
Shlama Akhi Dave,

gbausc Wrote:Please tell me where "qnoma" occurs in The OT Peshitta. I also would like to know the Hebrew cognate for qnoma.

First you have to understand a little bit about the word "qnoma" itself. The word is a noun derived from the verbal root "qom" (as in "Talitha qomi".) The verb means "to rise, to stand up, to be present."

As such, the root of this word is found thousands of times in both the Hebrew and the Aramaic of the OT. (not just the Peshitta OT, but also the original Hebrew.)

Akhi, I answered your main points and did not gloss over at all. Perhaps you glossed over my answers.

"Napsha" can validly be substituted for "Qnoma", because they both refer to the same thing, although at different levels. "Napsha" describes an entity at the physical level ("breathing") while "Qnoma" describes the same thing at the conceptual level ("existing".)

You say that you understand that "Naphsha"s main meaning is "breath", yet you fail to admit that this has no similiar usage with the English "self."

You are dancing around some basic facts about linguistics. You cannot call "Napsha" the cognate of the English "self" - if the English "self" does not contain all the same imagery as the Semitic term.

Akhi, I translate many times something where the only thing I can do is approximate....look for the closest term in English. That doesn't mean that there always is one - but I have to choose something even when a perfect match does not exist.

Ask any translator - they'll tell you the same thing.
