Serpent-Handling Pastor Dies From Rattlesnake Bite

Recommended Posts

What Jacob actually says - according to the verse - is

אכן יש ה' במקום הזה ואנכי לא ידעתי

Surely YHWH is in this place and I I did not know it.

There is no punctuation in the Torah and so the exact meaning of what Jacob says is open to interpretation. Depending on how you punctuate it, and depending, in part, how you read "anochi" which means "I", but also denotes "myself" you either have an emphasis of surprise that G-d is in this place or a perhaps more subtle meaning - "YHWH is in this place and myself [in me], I did not know it.

Just food for thought.

You know which of those translations I like :)
