3 questions about Hebrew

  • In biblical Hebrew grammar, is 'eloheinu' a suffixed form of 'elohim' or of 'eloha' or of both?

    Grace to you. I need your help. My research has shown that in Deut 6:4, the word used is eloheinu which is a suffixed form of a noun, meaning our God(s). My question is, is eloheinu the suffixed from of 'elohim' only or if eloheinu the suffixed form of both elohim and eloha? Sounds to me that eloheinu could be from both eloha and elohim (singular and plural). If you have no insight on this, could you kindly seek some answers from the Hebrew brethren you are connected to?

  • What is this verb's stem?

    Hi! I am doing a study on Zechariah 12:10, and I am trying to figure out the verb stem for the word דָּקָרוּ Basically, I am trying to figure out if the verb is meant to be active (he loved) or passive (he was loved). After many YouTube videos, I am still uncertain. I looks like a qal stem, but the second vowel is a qamets instead of a Patach, Tsere, or Cholem, which is throwing me off. Would you be able to help? Also, would you be willing to explain how you reached your answer? It would be much appreciated! Thank you!
