: Hello dear friends
: I came upon this MT while translating an article about biblical subject.
: examples:
: The first Hebrew word of Psalm 2:12 MT is clear enough
: or
: Unexplained MT "im lo" in vs. 2 fulfills a semantic and metrical function when attached to the end of vs. 1.

: I could not find an acronym that could make sense here.
: My thanks to you

MT = Masoretic Text. There are several versions of the Old Testament, and each differs slightly from the other. The Masoretic Text version is favoured by Christians. See: http://www.taylor-edu.ca/codex/REL102/pdfs/Text_Canon_handouts.pdf
