Rule 14[edit]

I deleted a previous version of rule 14 and explained why in the main text. This is what I deleted:

"If a punishment for failure to observe, or violation of, a commandment is mentioned, the enactment of this punishment is not regarded as a separate commandment."


  • The article states that two translations have been made of the Sefer by ibn Tibbon and the other by Kafah, from the original Arabic...yet it neglects to say what language they translated the text into... I'm assuming Kafah's was into MIH, and that ibn Tibbon's was into Shuadit or Zarphatic, but... TomerTALK 21:14, 29 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Also, if you've got a good source for the thing about ibn Tibbon's translation, could you put in a date for it, and for Kafah's translations, and add ibn Tibbon's translation to the list of works written by him in the article that discusses him? I'm working on wikilinking some stuff in this article... TomerTALK 21:18, 29 November 2005 (UTC)
I have no access to the exact date of the Ibn Tibbon and Kaffah translations. The Ibn Tibbon translation is in rabbinic Hebrew and fairly accessible for the modern reader. Kaffah likewise uses the slightly more modern Hebrew of present-day Israel but employs the terminology found in rabbinic literature. JFW | T@lk 13:38, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
