Romans 1:17 query
#18
Something appears to be wrong here Paul. You translated Acts 1:4 as this:

",..He commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but they should wait for the promise of The Father, He whom ye have heard about from me."

Here you translated the gender (of which it is male, and the OT states that The Holy Spirit is feminine) instead of using the english word "that" in the neutral sense. The word He is referring to the gift from The Father, which is The Holy Spirit.

According to what I was able to ascertain about Hebrew and aramaic, these 2 languages do not have a neutral gender, only english seems to have the neutral word such as "it" but this is not in the vocabulary of Hebrew and aramaic.

So Paul, what is the syriac gender in this particular passage of Romans 8:16 in the peshitta?
