Zec 5:7 the word (one) is represented by the "a" of "a woman," and the word ve.tzot, which currently is without a tag, represents "and there was." At the moment is incorrectly tagged to "and there."This is difficult to tag because the English doesn't fit the Hebrew well, but ve.tzot goes better with "there" and with "a"fixed
2Ki 23:5"" is a participle, so the best word to tag would be "burned" rather than "incense." This needs changingfixed

1Cor 2.1

A simple search on the word 'mystery' yields 27x in the search results. With the various ways to decline this noun there are actually 28 occurrences of the word mystery in the NT. 1 Cor. 2:1 is missing from the search results. It is listed in BAG, 530 (1979) and BDAG, 662 (latest version).

Ezekiel 42.1

"inner chambers" - is it really the word which is otherwise used for "awaken"?



This verse is longer in the ESV than many others (eg KJV), and the end of the verse is not tagged to any Hebrew.This is correct. The second half of the verse is missing in the Hebrew but it is preserved in the ancient Greek. The scribe presumably jumped from the 1st occurrence of "the Lord has anointed you" in v.1 to the second one.None needed
Heb.11.37The ESV tagging is on "two" rather than "sawn in two"Good catchFixed
