Abstract The passive participle, used as an auxiliary, is often thought to introduce an event in the remote or eschatological future. But in Targum Neofiti, it is not the remoteness of a future event that explains the use of, but the modality of obligation: the sure conviction on the part of the speaker that the event introduced by will occur. In most cases, the person obliged to execute the event is God, the source of the theological nuance that lends to the context.
