Psalm 103:14 (NASB) (14)  For He Himself knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust.

Here, He is R2 and but is R3. What do those R numbers that mean? Are they still Hebrew words?

The screenshot was taken from my NASB package in eSword.

  • Strong's Exhaustive Concordance only displays H for hebrew and G for greek. I can only think that R1/R2/R3/N1 refer to what part of speech the word is (maybe ?). – Nigel J Mar 1 at 18:37
  • I think you misascribe the R numbers to the preceding word. There is a gap between the end of the preceding word and the R number, but no gap between the R number and the following word. So, for example, R3 relates to "dust" not to "but". "He Himself" is a translation of a single Hebrew word, H1941. R1 is prefixed to it. – davidlol Mar 3 at 9:36
  • I notice that R1 comes first, then R2 and then R3. Possibly the R numbers are references to something in the book or site you are looking at. N1 night be a note. Do other verses follow a pattern e.g. if there is an R2 is there always an R1 earlier in the verse? – davidlol Mar 3 at 9:45
  • It is the NASB in eSword. – Blaise Mar 4 at 18:04

Found an answer from a forum question (post #2 by Bradley S. Cobb): NASB + marking's what are they for

the N stands for footnote. the R stands for cross-reference. the notes/references are in the NASB commentary file.
