comment Why was the law about Para Aduma given in Mara?
For what it's worth, the question is confusing in the first place. I don't understand what you're asking.

@cham1 This is a question/answer site about Judaism. It is not a post-your-own-Devar-Torah site. If you have a Devar Torah in the form of a question-answer, that's fine (and encouraged), but it has to be presented within the guidelines of the site. One question per post. If you have overlapping questions, you can link questions to each other. If the site will not allow you to ask more than one question, wait until it does. It's preventing spam; this is for your benefit as well as everyone else's.

@GershonGold "You can even edit my answer." I see what you did there.

comment Was Caleb a foreigner (Non-Isralite)?
@GershonGold, I would only edit if I were sure you wouldn't object or if I didn't care if you did. And if I were sure I was correct.

comment Was Caleb a foreigner (Non-Isralite)?
@msh210, that's fascinating. I have heard it pronounced Aben, but I had no idea where it came from. Seems legit, VeTzarich 'Iyun. In any event, it's not Even. I'm already halfway towards adopting an entirely new pronunciation myself, and I'm wondering if Abn would be more correct than Aben, and if there's a way to pronounce it based on the way the Tzerei and Segol are used in those dictionaries/grammars he cites.

+1, but can I point out that it's Ibn Ezra, not Even Ezra, without us getting into an argument over the validity of the latter?

Not supposed to, or don't have to? It might depend on various factors. Also, for practical guidance, and I hope this is not, please CYLOR.
