The Dutch Adventist Church creates a magazine, Contact, that goes to about 3000 people who are interested in the Bible. As some of these people have been receiving this magazine for quite a few years, the editors wanted to have a recurring theological column, meant for the long-time readers. This article should match the theme of the edition. The editors asked me to write this column.
This is the nineteenth column, in a magazine entitled ‘!’. I wrote an article on the lack of punctuation in the Hebrew Bible, and how particles play a similar role. Especially interesting for thinking about exclamations is the mirative particle hinneh, often translated as ‘behold’! Read it here.
