comment What is the opposite of shalom?
If Yeshayahu isn't speaking about antonyms then i wonder why shalom is posed against rah.

comment What is the opposite of shalom?
Antonym = a word opposite in meaning to another. I'm just trying to see how rah is defined as opposite for the definition of shalom, and how it is defined as opposite for tov as well and the connection (comparrison and difference) between them.

comment Makers and Creators: Job 35:10 & 12:1 Kohelet singular v.s. plural
I do understand the comments that have been given, but I still don't get the point of using these plural facets: 'my makers, and your creators' what are they refering to if not to the One and Only Creator/Maker G-d Himself? And if they do as it seems, then why use the plural facets in the first place?

comment Makers and Creators: Job 35:10 & 12:1 Kohelet singular v.s. plural
I didn't linked those translations, but possibly someone did this so people could read these verses. I did read a lot of translations but some of those said that it are plural nouns with singular suffix, while others state it are plural participles with pronominal suffixes, and other say these are plural participles (mostly translations with a christian/trinity background). I myself believe its correct translation is 'my Maker' and 'your Creator', but I just wondered if this verse could be rendered any other way based on the principles of Hebrew grammar.

comment How did G-d make animals and how did they became living beings?
One more point i would like to make about what i wrote earlier is this: Kohelet 12:7 adds to the idea given in Kohelet 3:19 - refering to animals and the human being having one ruach and the fact they both die the same way (breathing their last breath out) - by stating that the dust shall return to dust, and that the ruach shall return to Elohim who gave it. In referce; Animals, based on these points, having gotten their ruach also of Elohim; thus their first breath that animated their eartly body (fro the dust) came from Him.

Set (Bereshit 5:3) then was like/after/according to the model of Adam, and was made in the resemblance of Adam; meaning that Sets 'building' was like (in the likeness of) that of Adam, and that his qualities and abilities reflecting Adams (see the change of the prifixes Bet & Kaf in the verse of Bereshit 1:26 to Kaf & Bet in the verse of Bereshit 5:3 ).

Maybe your right; then the difference between the human being and animals can be found in the part that the human being was made in or with the model (the image; the buildingplan) from Elohim and like/after/according to the resemblance of Elohim; meaning that the human being in its building has the qualities and abilities reflecting HaShem Elohim.

Their breathing their last breaths (dying) in the same way; breathing their first breaths... well in the sense of breath, the ruach of men is identical with the ruach of animals (Kohelet 3:19); maybe it's the same with the nishmat. But i'm not sure if the proces of gaining the first breath was the same. The Source of both is HaShem Elohim, but breathing His Ruach in the Human or giving ruach to the animals could make a difference, but that's just a thought.

comment Human v.s. Animal: spiritual v.s the most fine physical entitie kind of soul?
Maybe its best if I don't translate those; so I can try to understand the whole thing true the eyes (definition) of others. Personally i think that the Ruach, Nefesh and Neshamah are all part of the same inner being that animates the body.

comment Adam masculine and feminine?
Isn't it so that exept for the biological gender (genitials) things aren't masculine of feminine? But that it is because of us human beings that things are rendered masculine or feminine, in our speaking for example. I wonder what G-d ment by male and female?

comment What distinguishes humans from animals?
I'm not sure whether thats true or not. Maybe the drives, urges, impulses or instinct to hurt humans by animals could be called a Yetzer HaRah as well, or the drives etc. that lead to protecting and saving humans could be called Yetzer HaTov.. unless the Yetzer Tov and HaRah are of the mind and not of the heart/body. From a Biological, philosophical and anthropological perspective for example, humans are always distinguished from animals (and other living things) because of their mind functioning. Humans seems to use their brains in a fashion or level that no animal could reach.

comment Moral Culpability in the Garden
I once read a commentary that told that the part with the snake represented an internal dialogue inside the head of Chava. Could the the knowledge of truth and false be influenced some way that they chose wrong? That although they had the command not to eat from it, they thought rationally that they could eat from it (as if it was a truth)?
