      Dear all,

      I am glad to announce that the Journal of Hebrew Scriptures (http://www.jhsonline.org) has recently published the following article:

      Aron Pinker, "The Doings of the Wicked in Qohelet 8:10."


      Minor and reasonable emendations produce the following reading:

      וּבְכֵן רָאִיתִי רְשָׁעִים קְבָרִים וְאוֹב וּמְקוֹם קָדוֹשׁ יְהַלֵּכוּ וְיִשְׁתַּכְּחוּ בָעִיר אֲשֶׁר כֵּן־עָשׂוּ גַּם־זֶה הָבֶל

      “and also I saw wicked frequenting graves, and necromancer, and place of a holy. And they were forgotten in the city in which they did so (correctly?). This too is absurd.” The verse is an observation regarding repenting evil-doers. Their acts of piety are forgotten in their own city, though they could have served as actual examples for justifying God’s being ‘slow to anger.’
