    for the quick and thorough response. I understand your view but wonder if
    the situation you describe would not fit a scenario of human languages as
    well. For example, if you had an assembly of Greek speakers and someone
    received, by divine gift, the ability to speak Hebrew would not that be just
    as unintelligible to the rest as an "ecstatic" language? Thus, for the
    purpose of edification, which Paul appears to be addressing, would that not
    necessitate an interpreter?</FONT></BLOCKQUOTE>
  <DIV>That was NOT a thorough response but a very concise one; I think the case
  can be made at greater length and more convincingly. I do wonder whether Paul
  should be understood as speaking five words with his NOUS more convincingly in
  Hebrew or in Greek--I think the antithesis is between intelligible speech and
  unintelligible speech rather than between languages intelligible to two
  different speech-communities. Nevertheless, I don't think this is the proper
  forum for this discussion. I do not intend to pursue it further here. Suffice
  it to say that there will remain alternate views on this matter, and that some
  will find one particular view more convincing than another.</DIV>
