Settling this once and for all!
#34
The reason I asked, is because I felt puzzled when I encountered this in KJV and also Paul Younan Interlinear.

Since 'amud means immerse -- how can a person be immersed WITH water? English speakers would find that strange. (Also, people do not notice the wierdo grammatical occurence because most Bibles read "baptize" -- but they would be puzzled if "immerse" was used.)

Is....it correct to say that "immerse" is a verb that where 'in' or 'into' would be the appropriate way to render the verse ?? (I just recently found out that the Aramaic can render it "with", but wondering now what is more appropriate to translate.)

"I 'amud you WITH water" ,(though strange to my English mind), allows baptism by pouring.

" I 'amud you IN (or INTO) water" makes it lean to baptism by full body immersion. IN or INTO [also] makes more sense.

Paul, since you know linguistics, I request that you correct me about "immerse WITH water". Perhaps in Semitic psyche "being immersed with water" is fine. But English wise, it is a stumper. <!-- sHuh --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/huh.gif" alt="Huh" title="Huh" /><!-- sHuh -->
