Grass withers, flowers fade--
But the word of our God is always fulfilled!
Isaiah 40:8 (NJPS)

Thank you for visiting my personal website highlighting biblical studies and Bible translation. It is my prayer that you will find these studies, reviews, comments, and links enlightening and encouraging. I have an unshakable belief in the verbal and plenary inspiration of the Scriptures and their inerrancy. My commitment is to the exegesis of the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts.

Kethiv & Qere' was my original choice for the title of my web site. That is not a memorable title, except for those already versed in the Hebrew Bible. Kethiv in Aramaic means "written" and Qere' means "read." Scripture itself is the primary "written." Obviously, that which is written must also be read. However, the temporary web space I was using assigned a different and more awkward URL that I am phasing out. So much for my original plans regarding the title. I have been persuaded by a large number of you that it is much easier to remember my name and title. Thus the current domain name: DrBarrick.org. In order to disseminate as much exegetical information as possible, I have included downloadable Adobe Acrobat Reader PDF files as well as links to recommended studies elsewhere on the world wide web. Wherever I have linked to a downloadable paper by someone other than myself, it is because I endorse that particular paper as a good example of biblical exegesis.

    Indeed these are the mere edges of His ways,

    And how small a whisper we hear of Him!

    But the thunder of His power, who can understand?
