Perhaps some people here in the CR can help me with this. I had asked a question last week about the 4 words that end in “oh” that have a hey instead of vav. I got that question from a note in my tikkun on the word “hamono” in the haftorah for Shabbos Chol HaMoed Sukkos. The note didn’t say what the others were. AYC mentioned “Ahalo” and Mod-42 hinted at “leicho”.
I checked my tikkun by the word “leicho” in Chasan Torah and there was a note there that it is one of 16 words like it, “yaro yiyare”, “ga’o ga’ah”, “ra’o panecho”, f’rao Aharon”, etc.
I think that the note by hamono was the shita mikubetzes and the one by leicho was teh minchas shai.
I had also remembered a similar not in one of the haftorah’s of the 3 weeks, I checked that one which said that throughout Yirmiya the word “kulo” is spelled with a hey.
There are also a bunch of names like this, Shlomo, Paroh, Shilo, etc.
I also remember seeing the word “t’vuaso” spelled with a hey somewhere.
I assume the difference between the 4 and the 16 has something to do with the dikduk of the word, but I still don’t know what the other 3 are. Perhaps “ahalo”, “t’vuaso”, and “kulo” count. I think “ahalo’ sounds more like the same type of word since it means “his…”
Does anybody have any ideas about this?October 23, 2011 6:27 am at 6:27 am #1217486
??????? also means “his” but is spelled with a hay.
You are clearly looking for words ending with a SUFFIX that mean “his” and not just root words ending in the cholem hayOctober 23, 2011 6:27 am at 6:27 am #1217487
Plenty of words end with an “Oh” with a Hei. The issue I believe is where there should be a Mapik in the Hey and a Kamatz but instead there is a Cholam before the Hei. I believe “Veniscoh” in Rosh Chodesh Leining is one of them. Just a guess.October 23, 2011 7:32 am at 7:32 am #1217488
3 people in tanach that lived to 137October 23, 2011 8:16 am at 8:16 am #1217489
137 years old:
Levi (Shmos 6:16)
Amrom (Shmos 6:20)
Yishmael (Breishis 25:17)
good one, Toi!October 23, 2011 9:48 am at 9:48 am #1217490
well done aycOctober 25, 2011 4:38 am at 4:38 am #1217491
Sorry I never got back with these answers:
1. Which word appears three times in a row in Tanach (there are a few answers, 2 of which have a slight change)?
2. Which two words appear 3 times consecutively in Tanach?
1. ayc was right with Kadosh, Kadosh, Kadosh (Yishayahu 6:3), but also Ava Ava Ava Asimena (Yechezkel 21:32). The following two have slight changes in their structure “Eretz Eretz Aretz (Yirmiyahu 22:29) and M’dinah M’dinah UM’dinah (Esther 8:9)
2. Heichal Hashem, Heichal Hashem, Heichal Hashem (Yirmiyahu 7:4)October 25, 2011 9:12 pm at 9:12 pm #1217492
is everyone actually figuring them out, or just looking them up?October 27, 2011 5:09 am at 5:09 am #1217493
I’m sure it’s a little of both.
Any new questions, anyone?October 29, 2011 4:16 pm at 4:16 pm #1217494
Nobody answered my last one: where in Tanach do we find 6 words in a row starting with the letter Alef?October 30, 2011 1:26 am at 1:26 am #1217495
Elokai Atah Aromimcha Odeh … Emunah Oman
It’s not in a row…. its in one pasuk thoughOctober 30, 2011 8:18 pm at 8:18 pm #1217496
bekitzur – the pasuk I have in mind has 6 words consecutively beginning with aleph.November 3, 2011 10:48 pm at 10:48 pm #1217497
Another one (and a bump for the last one):
How many couples in Tanach can you list in which both husband’s and wife’s names start with the same letter?
(There are at least 5.)November 4, 2011 1:43 am at 1:43 am #1217498
6 alephs in a row, and 8 out of 9 consecutive words:
?????? ??? ??? ??????, ??? ??????? ????? ?? ????????…
In Parshas ??? when JOSEPH’s brothers discuss the calamities befalling them are due to their MISTREATMENT OF THEIR BROTHER JOSEPH
Good one, ravshalom!November 4, 2011 1:50 am at 1:50 am #1217499

taking a breakMember
AYC!!!! ur back??? we missed you!!! welcome back!!November 4, 2011 5:21 am at 5:21 am #1217503
Chanie: It’s a Machlokes in the Midrashim (and the Minhagim by Leining Parshas Bereishis) whether Na’amah married Noach or not.November 4, 2011 6:09 am at 6:09 am #1217504
Three words in a row with the same amount of letters, using the same letters, all words with a different meaning.November 4, 2011 1:11 pm at 1:11 pm #1217505
Sam2: I was unaware that it is a Machlokes. My source’s are Rashi in ?????? ??? ?? ???? ? where he brings down a ?????? ???. The actual source is ?????? ??? ?? ?. There is also a Zohar that brings down that ???? ??? ??. The mekor is ??? ?? ??. Could you please tell me who disagrees, and I didn’t understand what you meant by “and the Minhagim by Leining Parshas Bereishis”. Thanks.November 4, 2011 1:14 pm at 1:14 pm #1217506
What was Noach’s name originally supposed to be, and why wasn’t he given it?November 4, 2011 3:12 pm at 3:12 pm #1217507
1. Which person lived the longest amount of years on Earth? Even surpassing ??????’s 969 years lifespan.
2. Which women was the oldest person to give birth from the beginning of time to the present? Hint: It is not ??? or ?????.November 4, 2011 3:35 pm at 3:35 pm #1217508
Chanie: Rav Schachter mentioned it a few days ago. Some say she was Noach’s wife and some say she was the first prostitute. You are not supposed to end an Aliyah on a bad thing. So some end the Aliyah at Achos Tuval Kayin Na’amah because that’s a good thing (she was Noach’s wife), and some end it at Az Huchal Likro Beshem Hashem, which is also bad but apparently those Minhagin have a different translation for the word Huchal.November 4, 2011 3:52 pm at 3:52 pm #1217509
Chanie: It’s not Serach Bas Asher. I once did the math and if you assume she’s the woman from Tekoa you’re still over 100 years short of Mesushelach.
If you assume Noach didn’t have kids until he was 500 then probably his wife.November 4, 2011 4:49 pm at 4:49 pm #1217510
Sam2: Thanks for explaining it. Noach did not have children until he was 500 years old, and assuming that Na’amah was his wife, she was well over 500 years old as she was born well before Noach.
As for who is the longest living person? The answer is Chirum Melech Tzur, who was rewarded by Hashem for having assisted Shlomo in building the Bais Hamikdash. He lived for a 1000 years and became so conceited that he believed himself to be a deity. For that, Hashem killed him.November 5, 2011 5:41 pm at 5:41 pm #1217511
One more couple nobody mentioned:
?????? ?? ??? and ????
There may be more but that’s all I remember at the momentNovember 6, 2011 5:57 pm at 5:57 pm #1217512

Another couple in which both husband’s and wife’s names start with the same letter:

Where in Tanach do you have the same word alternating 3 times?
(meaning: a b a c a d)February 16, 2017 11:54 pm at 11:54 pm #1217517

Wow, I guess that last one was so hard that everyone gave up.February 17, 2017 3:24 am at 3:24 am #1217518
What’s the answer?February 17, 2017 3:48 am at 3:48 am #1217519
I think the person who asked the question might not be around anymore (in the CR that is), but I guess the older posters can tell you if that’s true or not.February 21, 2017 10:47 pm at 10:47 pm #1217520
Okay so the person who asked the question took off.
There are still plenty of CR members left though.
Nobody has the answer?
Tastes have changed around here apparently.
Come to think of it I haven’t seen a recipe thread in ages…
