Mote. — S ig gts. of difficult and uncertain interpretation, and in some of the passages quoted a different expl. is tenable. Authori- ties esp. read the Heb. differently, when the choice is between for and yea. E.g. Is 8 23 Ges E w * •* » dock (no, but); Hi Di for (taking v M as RVm); Ch surely: 15 1 Ges Ew Hi Di surely; De for: 39 s Ges Hi De surely; Di for (expl. of 3to) : Ez 1 1" Hi Ke Co surely; Ew Sm because. — In Ex 20 25 the tense of rbbm makes it prob. that? is for (Dr im ). Jb2 2 M is taken with least violence to usage (DISS) as Hi : When they humble thee, and thou sayest (=complainest) Pride ! he will save, etc. "□N "O (the DN always foil, by makkeph, except Gn 15 4 Nu 35 s3 Ne 2 2 , where DN _, 3 is read by the Mass.: Fr MM241 )— 1. each part, retaining its independent force, and relating to a different clause : a. that if Je 26 15 ; after an oath (*? not translated : v.

(About 1 40 t.) the two particles being closely conjoined, and relating to the same clause — a. limiting the prec. clause, except (after a negative, or an oath, or question, the equivalent of a negative) — the most usual term for expressing this idea : sq. vb.
