2023.06.08 06:35 Hydrotricithline Sorc - Two handed staff vs weapon + orb my experience so far

I've been playing around with sorc builds a little lately, been wracking my head trying to figure out why anyone would use a 1h weapon + orb vs a 2 handed staff.
Hear me out:
two handed staff vs 'knife' and 'orb. The 1 handed weapon is higher dps with the orb than the 2 handed weapon is. Obviously the difference is the attack speed. So assuming the DPS was equal between the 2h vs 'dual wield', the effective dps should be the same. correct?
However, for simplicity sake to illustrate my point, If a 2-h weapon does 10 damage per swing at once a second, and a weapon+orb does 5 damage per swing at the speed of 2 swings per second. The damage between the two 'should' be equivalent. However the missing factor here is mana/spell points. The 2-h weapon only has to pay the cost once, and the 1h + orb has to pay the cost twice, for the same dps.
I might be bias here as I'm building a dot/fire sorc build, but I haven't been able to eye ball the 'firewall' spell 'ticking' damage any faster or slower based on the weapon speed I'm using once cast. And if (using enchants) I get a 5% proc chance of making 2 more firewalls per burn damage vs an enemy, the damage (over 8 sec) is radically larger when using the slower 2h weapon.
I'm trying to find any practical reason of why anyone would pay almost double the mana use, for the same (or less) dps using a caster vs when using a 2h staff.
The only viable 'reason' I could see is maybe another gem slot (or two?) and more 'extra stats' but I'm seriously doubting that's going to make up the damage per spell shortfall (and the excessive mana use) as the mana cost of the spells doesn't seem to scale downward with faster attacks.
Maybe I'm missing something here, would love any input. Maybe I'm using false assumptions but so far I'm trying a higher dps 1h+orb vs my crappy staff and my 2h staff, and my staff is burying the higher dps items both in actual dps and in mana use.
Any input is greatly appreciated.

2023.06.08 06:30 KingJames0613 Algos are showing desperation.

Algos are showing desperation.
This crazy 1m candle in AH is called a liquidity sweep. Note the long wicks on the top and bottom, with a spread covering $6.50+, over the course of one minute. If you've been in GME for a while, you've seen this before, usually in PM or AH, but sometimes in RTH. These are often characterized as "glitches", but they are not. You will often see them on earnings, major economic releases, and FOMC days.
A liquidity sweep normally happens right at big news events. Basically, MMs and other large players pull their orders from both sides (bid and ask). This forces the algos to desperately seek out the nearest liquidity in either direction, usually in profit target stops and stop losses. Normally, the initial reaction is in one direction, and the counter-reaction in the other direction indicates the direction of momentum. GME is not normal.
Today, the initial reaction was up a few dollars. Since AH is lower liquidity, and GME is generally way lower than average liquidity (because diamond hands), they had to pull all their bids and move them several dollars lower. Otherwise, they run the risk of flashing the other "glitch"... When the sell (ask) side is so thin that regarded numbers start popping up on the order book, like $420.69, $18,500, or $100k+. The emporer has no clothes.
The thing to remember is that the market is double-faceted, meaning that for every buy there is a sell, and vice versa. GME is different for a couple of reasons. One, there's an abnormally high concentration of buyers, at any price. I added 56 shares to my 401k in PM at $26.20. Two, a large swath of these buyers are removing their shares from the DTCC's custody, by booking them into their own via DRS.
Additionally, stock prices are indicated as a halfway point between the bid and the ask. When MMs and larger size players are playing both sides, the "price" is just the culmination of the halfway point between the bid and ask, regardless of whether those orders are actually filled, and to whatever size. When this happens, price discovery in low-liquidity stocks, or during low-liquidity hours, can be manipulated.
On the flip side, the market is double-faceted, meaning every buy forces MMs net short. How do they protect/hedge against that downside, and move toward net-neutral? By buying and selling options...and not like the mathematically illiterate FUDsters here would have you believe. 🙄 Downvote me all you want, but I've been here long enough to remember DFV and the OGs were buying, selling, and exercising options.
If you're net short and want to reduce your exposure, you buy calls and sell puts (both LONG functions), to try to reach net neutral. However, you don't buy calls or sell puts until you've crushed IV (Implied Volatility), which is $4.47 above/below close. We will likely open between $21.64-$30.58, but I would bet on the lower half below close. Once IV is wrecked, that's the ideal time to buy calls and sell puts.
For the next hot button topic, Gavin (Elliot Waves Guy) is a mathematical genius, and was chased off of here out of ignorance. Dude's levels are pristine! This one candle wrecked the GME bear case, from an Elliot wave standpoint. The following AH downtrend damn near knocked out his next wave down, leading into the next wave up.
TLDR: Nothing's changed. Might go up, might go down. BTFD, DRS to BOOK, and stop chasing differing opinions and valuable assets out of here. RC got promoted from chair man to executive chair man. Trust the process. Shorts are still fuk!
Disclaimer: I may or may not own ~4400 shares.

2023.06.08 06:29 SatisfactionFuzzy315 New to mesbg, i'm trying to build a decent corsair army list (with proxies)

Hello guys,
So, while i have collected and painted a few minis from the mesbg line for a long time, i have never really tried building an army to play the game. Since one of my friend has picked up the hobby, and is asking me to actually play the game with him instead of just painting the minis, i have looked through the factions, and their gameplay to decide the one i want to play.
I have settled on the corsairs of umbar. They seem quite strong, i love the fact that they can all shoot and throw, and, even though i'm not familiar with the rules yet, i feel like they are a fun faction to play, as they're both very strong in melee and from range, while having a low defense.
Since i could not find a box in my area, even after visiting three different hobby shops, i have settled for two boxes from frostgrave, archipelago crewmen and frostgrave cultits (love their swords, i might use some heads aswell), that i will assemble and convert to build a custom corsair list. 40 minis total.
I also have some greenstuff, miliput, and some stuff on sprue, mostly from the deus vult teutonic/templar range, and some english azincourt perry bowmen. Sadly, the teutonic/templars are mostly mounted, so, apart from maybe converting the knight of umbar, i can't really do much with them. The few infantry left on sprues have a lot of crossbows options though. I really like converting, and the kits i own seem to offer plenty, as i can count around 15 crossbows, and plenty of swords, knives, two handed weapons, bows and spears.
I have started the project by converting 6 black numenorean, one with a banner, from perry agincourt knights and fireforge bits with lots of greenstuff. So far, that's the only conversion i did, as i'd love to get atleast a rough army list, before building my minis wrong.
I'd love to build a 500 to 600 points list, depending on what i can do with those 46 models.
So i'm doing this post, after that long introduction, to get an opinion about:
1-What are the essential heroes of Umbar?
I was thinking of converting Dalamyr, Delgamar, and a bosco. Do i need more? I can easily build a knight of umbar, but i have not seen him used much.
2- How should i roughly build my ~35 corsairs left?
I was thinking of getting atleast 1/3 crossbows, for a total of 12, as they seem quite better than the bow option. Should i still build some bows, or get a better balance of bow and crossbow?
I also really like the reaver profile, with its two attacks, and the frenzy rule. Should i include some, and, if yes, how many for 500-600 points? I'm thinking 6-10 on one flank could be menacing, with a bosco coming along. How would you use them?
3- Any idea how to build the pavise shields for the crossbow corsairs?
I can always improvise something with wooden coffee stirrer or pickup some shields from the teutonic/templar range, but they will look very knighty. I have seen some on the perry brothers website, but as i'm not in the UK, port and taxes are rough for such a small order.
4-What is the general strategy as corsair of umbar? Especially against dwarves and mordor?
I will mostly be playing against dwarves. Any tips playing against that faction, or any hero/unit i should include, or be aware of?
5-Here is an example list i tried to comeup with, using those 46 minis for 600 points:
Warband 1: Dalamyr (90) + (210) (18/18) (total 300 points)
6X black numenorean, 1 with horn, 1 with banner (109)
12x corsairs, 3 with shields, 4 with lances, 5 with lances and shield (101)
Warband 2: Delgamar (75) + (129) (13/15) (total 204)
12 corsairs with arbalest (120)
1 corsair with shield, lance (9)
Warband 3: Bosco Hero with shield and lance (51 points) + (45) (5/18) (total 96)
5 corsair reapers (45)
Total of 39 minis, 600 points, and 12 crossbows. I'm not really sure if delgamar is worth it, or if i should take a captain and more corsairs?

2023.06.08 06:28 TheBeardedRonin Well this run has started off different

King of Ghana 867 (Cisse Dynasty default). Started off doing the usual tribe stuff gobbling up my weaker neighbors. Reformed Bidaic with Warmonger and Islamic Syncretism to stay on good terms with my neighbors up North. Well, an opportunity to take the Canarias Duchy presented itself which I took quick advantage of (I love having Island duchies for rally points to far away places without having to worry about protecting it too much). Long story short, somehow Mallorca had gotten a hold of an entire Duchy is Andalusia, and had next to no troops and zero allies to defend it with. I could be focused on my homeland and work on forming Mali but I just couldn’t let this fateful boon go to waste. Sieged it down quick and now I’m poised to be a third major religious player in the gambit for Iberia. Unfortunately for the Catholics the Muwalladi all have a high opinion of me and I’ll likely be working in tandem with them as much as possible to dismantle Christendom. At least until they are no longer useful to me lol

Please explain this equipment.
Im confused about these percentages. For example, does this equipment reduce the enemy crit damage as in if they have 1000% crit, and are criting with a KOL unit, it will be reduced by a flat 9.4%+10.34%+10% bringing it down to 970.26% crit damage, or, does it reduce the crit damage as an actual percentage, as in if they have 1000% it will be brought down to around 700%?

2023.06.08 06:25 bikingfencer Galatians, chapter 4 - election

Chapter Four (https://esv.literalword.com/?q=Galatians+4)
-3. … we were enslaved [משעבדים, MeShoo`eBahDeeYM] to fundamentals [ליסודות, LeeYÇODOTh] [of] the world.  
“The word τα στοιχεια [ta stoikheia], the elements ... meant (a) the letters of the alphabet… (b) the elements of which a thing was composed, as the fire, air, earth, and water of which the world was thought to be constituted; (c) the elements of the universe, the larger cosmos, including the sun, moon, planets, and stars; and (d) the spirits, angels, and demons which were believed to ensoul the heavenly bodies, traverse all space, and inhabit every nook and cranny of earth, particularly tombs, desert places, and demented persons. These spirits were said to be organized like human governments. In Rom. [Romans] 8:38 Paul calls them ‘principalities’ and ‘powers.’ And vss. [verses] 9 and 10 of our present chapter indicate that he has them in mind in vs. [verse] 3. …  
Paul … includes in ‘the elements of the universe’ all sub-Christian ideas and observances, both Jewish and Gentile. He regards these ‘elements’ as slave drivers who frighten men with curses for not propitiating them by observance of special days and seasons, food taboos, dietary fads, and circumcision. In Christ he declared his independence of Fate, Fortune, Luck, and Chance, and from astrology, the counterfeit religion and bastard sister of astronomy, whose practitioners exploited the superstition that the stars controlled men’s lives from birth to death.” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X pp. 521 & 522)  
The elements of the world] A mere Jewish phrase, יסודי עולם הזה yasudey ‘olam hazzeh, ‘the principles of this world;’ that is, the rudiments or principles of the Jewish religion. The apostle intimates that the law was not the science of salvation; it was only the elements or alphabet of it.” (Clarke, 1831, vol. II p. 387)  
-4. But [אבל, ’ahBahL] as that was filled the time, sent forth, Gods, [את, ’ehTh (indicator of direct object; no English equivalent)] His son, born [of] woman, and subject [וכפוף, VeKhahPhOoPh] to instruction [Torah, Law].  
“The four words, το πληρωμα του χρονου [to pleroma tou khronou], the fullness of the time, express a whole philosophy of history. The Hebrew prophets and Jewish apocalyptists believed that their God was the creator of the universe and arbiter of the destinies of all men and nations. Nothing could happen that was not his doing, either directly or indirectly through angels and men. He had a time for everything, and everything happened exactly on time. … The completion of this present age would be marked by a blood-red revolution, in which all good men and good works would be ground under the heel of the tyrant, while the wicked reigned supreme. Then suddenly God would intervene with the lightning of judgment to snatch the world from the mouth of the bottomless pit and restore it to Paradise, whence it had fallen with the sin of Adam. Sorrow and sighing would flee away, and the Messiah would reign with the perfection of a theocratic king.  
At this juncture, says Paul, when the appointed period of history was ‘full,’ god sent his Son γενομενον εκ γυναικος, γενομενον υπο νομον [genomenon ek gunaikos, genomenon upο nomon], ‘born of woman, bοrn under law.’ … Jesus was not only born under law, but was subject to it all his life. ...The ‘yoke’ of the Torah demanded that he observe the customs of his forefathers, such as wearing phylactery and prayer fringes, ceremonial washing of hands before eating, giving thanks at mealtime, praying at stated times, bringing tithes and sacrifices, and obeying the Ten Commandments.” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X pp. 522 & 523)  
Not to mention circumcision, kashrut, and the prohibition of associating with gentiles.  
Sent forth refers to God’s sending of his Son from his pre-existent state in heaven (I Cor. [Corinthians] 8:6; Phil. [Philippians] 2:6-8; Col. [Colossians] 1:15-17). Yet this Son was born of woman. There is nothing in these words, or elsewhere in Paul’s letters, to prove or disprove that he knew the story of the miraculous conception. His point here is that the Christ, although he was the pre-existent Son of God, did not come into this world with a body composed of celestial substance, but was woman-born like all other human beings. … It was very different from the conception of royal sonship in Ps. 2, where the king is called God’s ‘Son; because he has been chosen to be the Messiah. In Paul, Jesus is God’s Son by nature, and his Christhood follows by virtue of this sonship. This belief was the fundamental cause of the split between the Jews and the Christians. The lowly birth, the obscurity of Nazareth, and the fact that Jesus was a common laborer, constituted a grievous scandal in the eyes of all who were expecting their Deliverer to come riding on a chariot of clouds wielding the lightning of judgment. Paul’s gospel contradicts every form of hyperspirituality that fixes a gulf between God and his material world. On the other hand, his conception of the coming of Jesus was poles removed from the pagan stories of the births of heroes, savior-gods, and kings, whose legends were freighted with illicit relationships and lawless conduct like the lives of the devotees who had created them in their own image.” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X pp. 523-524)  
“Nothing is said explicitly about the Son’s preexistence, which is at most implied … born of a woman: … The phrase is derived from the OT [Old Testament, the Hebrew Bible] (Job 14:1 …). So born, Jesus submitted to the law by being circumcised and thus became capable of falling under its curse. But lest the Galatians draw a wrong conclusion, Paul [and The Interpreters’ Bible] does not mention Jesus’ circumcision. Instead of genomenon, ‘born,’ some patristic writers read gennomenon, and understood this ptc. [participle] as referring to Mary’s virginal conception; but this is anachronistic interpretation.” (Joseph A. Fitzmyer, 1990, TNJBC p. 787)  
-7. Accordingly [לפיכך, LePheeYKhahKh], you are not [אינך, ’aYNKhah] a slave anymore [אוד, ’OD], for if [כי אם, KeeY ’eeM] a son, and, if a son, then [אזי, ’ahZahY] also heir from favor [מטעם, MeeTah`ahM] [of] Gods.  
“This is Paul’s proclamation of emancipation.” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X p. 528)  
Worry of Shah’OoL to Galatians
[verses 8–20]  
-8. In [the] past, in a time that you did not know [את, ’ehTh] Gods, you slaved [את, ’ehTh] who that in their nature [שבמנהותם, ShehBeMahHOoThahM] were not Gods.  
“The Jews never ceased to ridicule idols and denounce idolaters… They demoted the old gods to the rank of demons and made a list of detractive names for them: angels, shepherds, princes; kings, emperors, benefactors, heroes; demons, personifications, idols, nonentities. Some were living, some dead; some were good, but were not God. Most of them were bad, and their idols were but images of ‘things of nought.’ …  
Paul did not deny the existence of these beings whose ignorant worshipers called them gods, but he declared that they did not partake of the nature of God (I Cor. 8:4-6). God permitted them to plague mankind to punish sin, especially the sin of participating in the sacraments of the Gentile cults (I Cor. 10:19-22; 11:28-31). But Christ had conquered them and no Christian needed to fear them.” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X p. 529)  
-10. Behold, you are honoring days and new-[moons], seasons [מועדים, MO`ahDeeYM] and years.  
“Days like the Sabbath and Yom hakkippurim [“Day of Atonement”] are meant; months like the ‘new moon’; seasons like Passover and Pentecost; years like the sabbatical years… Paul can see no reason for a Gentile Christian to observe these.” (Joseph A. Fitzmyer, 1990, TNJBC p. 788)  
Two the covenants
[verses 21-26]  
-21. Say to me, you, the wanters to be subject to Instruction, have you not heard [את, ’ehTh] the Instruction?
-22. Is it not written that to ’ahBRahHahM there were two sons, the one from the maid [האמה, Hah’ahMaH] and the second from the woman the free [החפשיה, HahHahPhSheeYah]?
-23. But [אך, ’ahKh] [the] son [of] the maid was born according to [לפי, LePheeY] the flesh,
and however [ואילו, Ve’eeYLOo] [the] son [of] the free upon mouth of the promise.
-24. The words the these, they are a parable to two the covenants:
the one from Mount ÇeeNah-eeY [Sinai], the birther to slavery, and she is HahGahR [“The Sojourner”, Hagar].  
“It is well known how fond the Jews were of allegorizing; every thing in the law was with them an allegory: their Talmud [ancient commentary] is full of these; and one of their most sober and best educated writers Philo, abounds with them…  
It is very likely, therefore, that the allegory produced here; St. Paul had borrowed from the Jewish writings; and he brings it in to convict the Judaizing Galatians on their own principles: and neither he, nor we, have any thing farther to do with this allegory, than as it applies to the subject for which it is quoted; nor does it give any license to those men of vain and superficial minds, who endeavour to find out allegories in every portion of the Sacred Writings; and by what they term spiritualizing, which is more properly carnalizing, have brought the testimonies of God into disgrace. May the spirit of silence be poured out upon all such corrupters of the word of God!” (Clarke, 1831, vol. II p. 390)  
“Allegorical interpretation rests upon the belief that every word, figure of speech, and grammatical form in scripture has a special ‘spiritual’ significance besides its literal meaning. The theory is that the God who dictated it meant more than rests on the surface and that while he said one thing, he also meant something else in addition to the literal sense… The Greeks had long since applied the method to explain away the immoral things which the gods said and did in Homer… Then Greek-speaking Jews, like Philo Judaeus, employed it apologetically to read Greek philosophy into the O.T. [Old Testament, the Hebrew Bible], proclaiming that Moses had said all these good things long before and better than Homer and Plato.  
The wonder is that Paul has so little allegory. His restraint is explained partly by his training as a Pharisee. The rabbis were suspicious of any interpretation of scripture that tended to make Jews lax in their observance of the law. Jews with Gnostic leanings, and those who considered some of their ancestral customs outmoded, could resort to allegory to justify their philosophy and conduct, while maintaining that they were the spiritual superiors of the conservatives who held to the letter of the law … His argument, however, is never strengthened by allegorical symbolism and typology, for these are convincing only to those who by imagination can find them so. Rather, as in Rom. 9-11, he introduces unnecessary complications such as the moral difficulties involved in predestination. His gospel does not rest on the quicksands of allegory, a specious method of interpreting scripture. Its interpretations are of interest to the historian not as correct representations of what the writers and first readers of the Bible had in mind, but only as source materials for understanding the life and thought of the allegorists themselves.” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X p. 540)  
-25. Hagar signifies [מסמלת, MeÇahMehLeTh] [את, ’ehTh] Mount ÇeeNah-eeY, that is in Arabia, and parallels [ומקבילה,OoMahQBeeYLaH] to Jerusalem of our day, for she is in slavery with her sons.  
“… why does Paul mention Arabia…? Possibly because Mt. Sinai is in Arabia[?], which is Ishmaelite territory; he thus associates the Sinai pact with the eponymous patriarch of Arab tribes … Paul thus suggests that the law itself stems from a situation extrinsic to the promised land and to the real descendants of Abraham. Paul’s Jewish former co-religionists would not have been happy with this allegory.” (Joseph A. Fitzmyer, 1990, TNJBC p. 788)  
-26. But [אבל, ’ahBahL] Jerusalem from ascended [מעלה, Mah`eLaH], [the] daughter [of] freedom [חורין, HOReeYN] is she, and she is mother to us.
“The Jerusalem which now is was a most unholy “Holy city”, full of injustice, violence and murder, and subject to the cruel and wicked rulers imposed by a Gentile empire. But over against this Jerusalem of slavery lay an ideal celestial city, unseen at present, but destined soon to supersede it. Paul called it the Jerusalem above. Sarah, the free-woman, was the ancestress of its citizens, who were the people of faith and of freedom in Christ…  
Paul speaks of Jerusalem above, because this new city of freedom already exists in heaven where Christ is, where dwell the souls of those who have died in Christ. But it also exists on earth as the church, the body of Christ, whose members are colonists from heaven sent to prepare men for the full establishment of God’s kingdom at Christ’s second coming (Phil. 3:20; Col. 3:1-3).  
The biblical root of this conception of an ideal future and heavenly Jerusalem is Isa. [Isaiah] 54. Other descriptions appear in Ezek. [Ezekiel] 40-48; Zech. [Zechariah] 2:1-13; Hag. [Haggai] 2:6-9; Tob. [Tobias] 13:9-18 Ecclus. [Ecclesiasticus] 36; Pss. Sol. [Psalms of Solomon] 17:33. Historically the expectation assumed three forms. According to the earliest hope, God would build the new Jerusalem in Palestine and make it the capital of his theocratic world government. The plan of this glorious city was graven upon the palms of his hands (Isa. 49:16). From this idea it was but a step, especially for those influenced by Greek ideas, to think of this ideal Jerusalem as already existing in heaven. According to the Apocalypse of Baruch, God had shown it to Adam in Paradise before he sinned; to Abraham on the night mentioned in Gen. 15:12-21; and to Moses on Sinai, when he gave him the heavenly pattern for an earthly tabernacle (II Baruch 4:1-6; cf. [compare with] Heb. [Hebrews]12:22). The third conception combined these two ideas. The Jerusalem which was ‘above’ would come down to earth to be established in Palestine in place of the city that ‘now is’ (cf. Rev. [Revelation] 3:12, 21:2; II Esdras 7:26; 13:36; 10:54).  
So the new Jerusalem belonged to both worlds and to both ages, to heaven and earth, to the present and the future. Its constitution was the new covenant, and its citizens were the men of faith in Christ, a new kind of freemen who traced their spiritual ancestry through the line of Isaac and his mother Sarah as heirs of God’s promise to Abraham. As for Ishmael and his tribe, they were the men of law, predestined to be slaves forever. Needless to say, the Judaizers found Paul’s allegorical exclusion of themselves utterly unacceptable. They believed that the Torah was God’s blueprint for all creation, and that it would be observed forever in the new Jerusalem. That, they said, was why God was going to purge the old city – to establish an order of life in which perfect obedience to his law would be possible.” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X pp. 541-542)  
“…it was a maxim among the rabbins [rabbis], that, ‘Whatsoever was in the earth, the same was also found in heaven; for there is no matter, howsoever small, in this world, that has not something similar to it in the spiritual world.’ On this maxim, the Jews imagine that every earthly thing has its representative in heaven: and especially whatever concerns Jerusalem, the law, and its ordinances. Rab. ["Master", Rabbi] Kimchi, speaking of Melchisedec, king of Salem, says, זו ירושלים של מעלה Zu Yerushalem shel me’alah – ‘This is the Jerusalem that is from above.’…  
There is a spiritual Jerusalem, of which this is the type; and this Jerusalem, in which the souls of all the righteous are, is free from all bondage and sin: or by this, probably the kingdom of the Messiah was intended; and this certainly answers best to the apostle’s meaning, as the subsequent verse shows.” (Clarke, 1831, vol. II p. 391)  
-27. That see, is written:  
Chant, barren, not birthing, [רני עקרה לא ילדה RahNeeY 'ahQRaH Lo’ YahLahDaH] burst chanting and shouting, not travailing, [פצחי רנה וצהלי לא-חלה PeeTsHeeY ReeNaH VeTsahHahLeeY Lo’-HahLaH] for multitudinous are sons of her deserted than [מי, MeeY] sons of her mistress [כי-רבים בני-שוממיה מבני בעולה KheeY-RahBeeYM BeNaY-ShoMahMeeYHah MeeBeNaY Be'ooLaH].”  
“A telling item in the counterpropaganda of the legalists was the argument that even among the Christians only a radical fringe consisting mainly of foreign Jews, of whom Paul was one, were proposing to abandon the law of Moses. …  
In one respect his quotation of Isa. 54:1 does not fit Paul’s allegory. It was Sarah, the mother of freemen, who possessed the husband, and Hagar, the slave, who was the deserted woman. As usual with Paul’s illustrations (cf. Rom. 7:1-4; 11:17-24), the details cannot be pressed without making them go lame …  
The Isaian figure to describe the plight of Jerusalem during the Babylonian exile grew out of a common experience in Hebrew family life. Childlessness, particularly the failure to bear sons, was great grief and disgrace. Such was the sorrow of Jerusalem; but the prophet bade her look forward with courage to the time when all her scattered children would come back to her (Isa. 54:3). God was her ‘husband,’ and he would treat his faithful remnant with everlasting lovingkindness, making them more numerous than the former population and giving them a heritage of great peace and prosperity (Isa. 54:13-17).” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X p. 542)  
“The prophet’s words are addressed to deserted Zion, bidding it rejoice at the return of the exiles.” (Joseph A. Fitzmyer, 1990, TNJBC p. 788)  
-28. But you, my brethren [τεχνα, tekhna, “children”], you are the sons of the promise, as was YeeTsHahQ [“He Laughed”, Isaac].  
“The Judaizers claimed that Abraham had obeyed the law of Moses by anticipation, and that God’s promise was his reward. Consequently the descendants of Isaac were children of promise only if they followed Abraham’s example in obeying the law. Paul turned it the other way about: the promise must be taken on faith, not as credit for obedience.” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X p. 542)  
-29. And just as [וכשם, OoKhShayM] that then pursued, [רדף, RahDahPh] the son that was born according to [לפי, LePheeY] flesh, [את, ’ehTh] the son that was born according to the spirit, yes, also now.  
“In Gen 21:10 Sarah, seeing Ishmael ‘playing’ with Isaac and viewing him as the potential rival to Isaac’s inheritance, drives him and his mother out. Nothing in Gen is said of Ishmael’s ‘persecution’ of Isaac, but Paul may be interpreting the ‘playing’ as did a Palestinian haggadic explanation of Gen 21:9 (see Josephus, ANT. [Antiquities] 1.12.3§215 …” (Joseph A. Fitzmyer, 1990, TNJBC p. 788)  
“A rabbinical tradition of the second century A.S. interprets the Hebrew participle מצחק [MeeTsHahQ, “play”] (LXX [Septuagient, the ancient Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible] παιζοντα [paizonta] in Gen. 21:9 to mean that Ishmael’s ‘playing’ became so rough that Isaac’s life was in danger. This son of a slave is said to have shot arrows at Isaac to kill him, and Paul’s statement shows that some such tradition was current in his day. He applied it to the Judaizers who were trying to force the Christians to observe the whole law of Moses, and to the unbelieving Jews who were excommunicating the Christians and their families and getting them into trouble with the civil authorities (1:5; 4:17; 5:10; I Thess. [Thessalonians] 2:14-16).” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X p. 543)  
-30. But what says the Written [Scripture]?  
Banish [גרש GahRaySh] the maid and [את, ’ehTh] her son,
for not will inheritI [יירש, YeeYRahSh], son [of] the maid [האמה, Hah’ahMaH], with son [of] the free.”  
“The quotation is from Gen. 21:10 … The speaker of these words is Sarah, who is filled with rage against Hagar and Ishmael. Abraham is represented as greatly grieved, but God is said to have sanctioned the demand of the cruel and jealous wife….  
This story was one of the effects and one of the causes of the perpetual feud between the Israelites and the tribes that descended from Ishmael. The Hebrews were so sure that God wanted them to have Palestine that they found no moral difficulty in saying that it was God himself who had overruled Abraham’s conscience (Gen. 17:18-21). They affirmed that Ishmael’s character and destiny had been predetermined (Gen. 16:12). Consequently, even his circumcision at the age of thirteen could not make him a member of God’s chosen people. However great this innocent victim of a family feud might become by virtue of the halfhearted blessing conceded by an uneasy conscience (Gen. 17:20-21), he and his descendants were barred forever from the higher blessing. Theirs was to submit to the religious imperialism of the most favored nation or die. Moreover, all Abraham’s other sons except Isaac were barred from the promise and sent away ‘unto the east country’ (Gen. 25:5-6). And yet while all this was said to be the Lord’s doing, it was in the same breath declared to be the doing of the human actors in this drama of the nations. Sarah herself was said to have suggested that Abraham become a father by her Egyptian slave girl. Then, too, it was explained that Hagar’s flight from the cruelty of her mistress was voluntary, making her, rather than the callous compliance of Abraham, responsible for her plight ‘in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur’ (Gen. 16:7).  
Paul’s use of Abraham’s expulsion of Hagar and her child has its parallel in the equally heartless treatment of Esau which he employs in Rom. 9-11 in his longer discussion of the divine process of selection. Here too it was assumed that the hatred generated by centuries of war for the possession of Palestine lay in the heart of God. “I hate Esau,” said Malachi (1:3), making God the speaker; and Rom. 9:6-13 presses it to the utmost limit of predestination. But the love of God in Christ Jesus made Paul’s heart better than his inherited doctrine … When the history of the struggle for the possession of “the Holy land” is allegorized to justify a doctrine of “election” which foredooms countless souls to an eternity of torment in a future hell, it becomes as morally atrocious as it is irreconcilable with Paul’s gospel.  
Nevertheless Paul’s allegory gives the historian an insight into Paul’s mind as he wrestled with the insoluble problem of God’s sovereignty and human freedom.” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X pp. 543-544)  
“Paul bids the Galatians rid themselves of the Judaizers – and, ironically enough, obey the Torah itself.” (Joseph A. Fitzmyer, 1990, TNJBC p. 788)   An Amateur's Journey Through the Bible
