Hitpael participle ms absolute


Recommended Posts

Beginners question: When I read, "Hitpael participle ms absolute" in instant details does that mean infinite absolute? Or could it have another meaning? Thanks!


I'm particularly interested in this:

וַֽיִּשְׁמְע֞וּ אֶת־ק֨וֹל יְהוָ֧ה אֱלֹהִ֛ים מִתְהַלֵּ֥ךְ בַּגָּ֖ן לְר֣וּחַ הַיּ֑וֹם וַיִּתְחַבֵּ֨א הָֽאָדָ֜ם וְאִשְׁתּ֗וֹ מִפְּנֵי֙ יְהוָ֣ה אֱלֹהִ֔ים בְּת֖וֹךְ עֵ֥ץ הַגָּֽן׃

does that mean infinite absolute?


I'm guessing you mean "infinitive absolute" here.  And it is a good question you ask.  My guess would be that "absolute" in this case is in constrast to a "construct" state.  But I'm not sure, since "absolute" and "construct" usually refer to noun states, not verb states (that I'm aware of).
