Sample text

Syriac transliteration generally is shown without vowels. Other languages follow standard rules for those languages. Egyptian and Epigraphic Hebrew do not indicate vocalization, and when transliterating such texts, depending on the context, vowels may or may not be supplied: for example, Ksˇ (K ‰ˇs ) or Kusˇ for Kush. Spellings of biblical names differ from English Bible translations only in having k and not c represent Hebrew kaf; thus Kush, Sabteka. Names not generally found in the Bible are transliterated (Yohanan, not Johanan), unless the names are commonly found in English, in which case the familiar spelling is used (Akiba, not gAkiva or Akiva).

Unfortunately, even in recent times we can find similar cases. ”56 However, another interpretation is gaining ground among scholars of the Hebrew Bible today and appears dominant: the purpose of the verse is to reject the belief that Israel has a special status before God; the Israelites are just like any other people. The Kushim/Ethiopians are specifically mentioned as representative of the other nations because of their remote distance. “Are you not like the Kushites to me, O Israelites” proclaims, in other words, that the Israelites are no more special to God than the most remote people on the face of the earth.

17 The biblical conception informing the Table of Nations, therefore, that the people on both sides of the Red Sea THE BIBLICAL LAND OF KUSH 19 were ethnically related and descended from the same Kushite ancestor probably reflects the historical situation. This relationship between the peoples on either side of the Red Sea is, incidentally, paralleled in the field of linguistics, where scholars now see a relationship between the respective families of languages and refer to a parent family as Afro-Asiatic (formerly called Hamito-Semitic).
