A common (and somewhat vulgar) Israeli saying about arrogant people is: הוּא חוֹשֵׁב שֶׁהַשֶּׁמֶש זוֹרַחַת לוֹ מֵהַתַּחַת ‘he thinks the sun shines out of his arse’. Kinda makes the expression ‘where the sun don’t shine’ ironic…
The sun is rising = השמש זורחת
The sun is shining = השמש בוהקת/מסנוורת
Sometimes השמש זורחת בשמים, it is used for "shining". It can mean either.
Google translate has shine as זוהר.
Am I missing something?
So the Sun is a feminine, as in Germanic languages (die Sonne) and in Tolkien's Universe. I Wonder if the moon is masculine...
the weather is sweet
