    The word ????? IS very broad…and I don’t think I would ever define it as baptism in the context we are dealing with here.

    The link: lolololol 😀

    ????? ????? = Septaguint (work produced, not actual writing)

    Um… not quite. The Septuagint that we have today is not the famous ????? ????? described in the Gemara. Aside from the fact that the extant LXX doesn’t have the changes recorded in the Gemara, there is also the fact that there are several *other* differences between the Tanach and the extant LXX.

    For example, I’m sure many of you are aware of the verse in the Christian Bible in Acts that says that 75 people went down to Egypt with Yaakov (as opposed to the count of 70 that we have). Most people in the frum world tend to assume that the author of Acts simply made a typo. The truth, however, is that the author of Acts was using the LXX, where Beraishis 46 lists 75 people, not the 70 (or 69) that we have in our version.

    In addition, the LXX that we have today covers all of Tanach while it’s clear from the Gemara in Megillah that the ????? ????? only covered the Chumash.

    As a result, you cannot say that the ????? ????? (i.e. the work that was produced) is the Septuagint that is extant today.

    I guess I’m not understanding your point. I’m not sure what you mean by “work produced, not actual writing.”

    I was acknowledging your point. But I put it on the list all the same, because in the amusing English translations (like the English ??? ???? that I’m getting all these specimens from), they call the actual event “the Septaguint.” (Which makes sense, because that’s more accurate to literal form.)

    I know that wasn’t at all clear in the original post, but I didn’t think anyone would call me on it. 🙂

    Hey…I thought I deleted my post above. Somehow it made to print anyway.

    1) ??????? = to betroth

    2) ??????? = a concubine

    3) ?????? = phylacteries

    some of these are, literally, one for the ages! hilarious!

    (Not really a translation of anything, but it’s an amusing Biblical allusion.)

    Ramba”m – Maimonides

    Ramba”n – Nachmanides

    Ralba”g – Gershonides

    Philosophers are assigned Latin surnames if they don’t already have one. That way they can be referanced consistantly in other works. (I’m not sure why there is an exception for Greek philosophers.)

    Along the lines of Gershonides

    Philo = ??????

    Fun fact about Ralbag (Gershonides): he has a crater on the moon named after him, and it isn’t and it isn’t called “Gershonides” — it’s called “Rabbi Levi.”
