@markjperkins Yes, you are correct. I am a native modern Hebrew speaker and have studied Biblical Hebrew academically. Ruach רוח (wind/breath/spirit) is indeed feminine in Hebrew (and Aramaic and Arabic and all Semitic languages). In Greek, Latin, and Germanic Pneuma/Spirit is masculine however. As a messianic jewish Israeli I grew up speaking about the Holy Spirit in exclusively feminine terms. I’m was shocked to the core to discover that most Christians do not do so.
@Pondering I wouldn't doubt that. I often find myself saying things are male for no reason, it's kinda the default position which I have caught myself on a few times. however i often think of cars and ship's as feminine. language is funny you're right.
