Well... I guess I wouldn't recommend asking a question the way that I did. ;-)
Likely many of the questions we'll see here are of the "What the heck does this mean?" sort. Hopefully there will be a little bit of elaboration to point to what the asker fails to grok, but the essence will remain: "I'm confused. Help me out." In these cases, the answer might depend on extensive historical background, but there's no way for the asker to know that. So telling them, "We won't answer your question because it's really about historical context" seems a bit unfair and unreasonable.
Take for instance, my question on Jeremiah 31. Until I read Amichai's excellent answer, I would not have guessed that the word "encircled" could have a courtship connotation. Further, while I did know some of the historical context of Jeremiah that was required for the answer, we can't expect every question to be from people who already know the history of the text they are asking about.
On the question in question, it has genetic problems. I went about asking the question all wrong, but I think after some work, it's not so bad. It's not great as it boils down to "I don't get this" rather than a really well considered question that hasn't yet been resolved. I'd appreciate further suggestions to get it whipped into shape, but I think it now fits on the site more or less.
