You mentioned that "Noah's list of supplies... is in a mix of paleo-Hebrew and cuneiform," but that this is "for another forum."
Please, please tell me where such a forum is. I would love to join it. (Sreiously: I enjoy this present group a lot, but where can I find a vigorous group of Biblical Hebrew scholars with whom to interact online?).
