1. Ingileif: Clarification Concerning Icelandic Bible Rendition
Re: Brit-Am Now no. 1440
#2. Icelandic Translation of the Bible and the Coat of Joseph
http://britam.org/now2/1440Now.html#Icelandic

Shalom Yair.

This subject is extremely delicate and very important that NO misunderstanding happen.

In the Icelandic Bible some of the holy clothes of the highest priest are woven in diamond squares.
That stands both in the 1584 and 1981 translation

but

In 1584: The coat of Joseph is named MISLIT, what means variegated or checkered. And in medieval Icelandic used for embroidered things.
but not squared or striped.

Sincerely

Ingileif

Brit-Am Reply:
As far as we are concerned the Hebrew original and its meaning are the definitive sources not the translations though it does seem that in this case the Icelandic rendition is more accurate and precise than the English ones.
The Hebrew word is "Mishbastot" which means plaid, square or diamond shaped, in tartan-type design.
It should be pointed out that according to Nachmanides those Commentators (such as Iben Ezra) who interpreted "cotonot pasim" as an "embroidered coat" meant that it was embroidered with a tartan-type design.
The two explanations are therefore not necessarily contradictory.

Joseph received a "cotonet pasim" (Genesis 37:3).  We have explained this to mean "a coat of colored stripes in a tartan-type pattern".
 The clothing of the High Priest included a "cotonet tashbets" (Exodus 28:2) translated in English as "colored tunic" or some such term but in Hebrew meaning a garment (cotonet) made in a plaid (i.e. tartan-type) pattern.
This pattern in Hebrew is known as "mishbatsot" or "tashbets".
Nachmanides and others link the cotonet pasim of Joseph to the cotonet tashbets of the High Priest. This in our opinion appears to be correct.
The question is why does the Torah use the term "cotonet pasim" for the coat of Joseph if some kind of "cotonet tashbets" is intended?
The answer may be that "pasim" meaning literally lines or stripes also connotes variegated colors whereas "tashbets" could refer to the pattern of weaving without the colors.
Go to
Scottish Tartan and the Temple Garments
http://britam.org/tartan3.html
scroll down to the picture of the "cotonet tashbets".  There the tartan-type design of the weaving is clearly evident but the garment itself is all one color.

Brit-Am Reply:
The prices include shipping, handling, and everything else.
A check is probably preferable to a money order.
