[126z] Of the remaining examples Is 119 explains itself; the direct connexion of the attribute with its substantive is broken by the insertion of לַיָּם. In Ez 3412, Hag. 1:4 (as Wellhausen says, a good instance of a Hebrew adjective in the stative form = וְהֵם סְפוּנִים), ψ 14310, Ct 612 (?) the substantive is also (see above) determined by a suffix, and consequently the attribute is less closely attached; the same applies to Gn 372, 4219, 4314, ψ 1818, except that in these passages the omission of the article before ר, א, ע may at the same time be due to considerations of euphony (as also in Jos 161 before ע, Nu 1437 before ר, 28:4, Ez 109 before א, 21:19 before ח). In 1 S 1317 f. (אֶחָד) and 2 K 2516 (שְׁנַ֫יִם after a determinate substantive), the attribute again, being a numeral, is determinate in itself (see above, x); in Is 652 the לֹא prevents the use of the article; finally, in 2 Ch 2615 בְּחִצִּים and בַּֽאֲבָנִים are to be read, as in Jer 221 גֶּ֫פֶן for הַגֶּ֫פֶן, in 22:26 אֶ֫רֶץ for הָאָ׳; in 2 S 63 omit חֲדָשָׁה, and in Ez 3927 omit רַבִּים. Without any apparent reason the article is omitted in Dn 813 and 11:31.
[126aa] 2. When, as in Mi 712 (יוֹם הוּא in that day?), the article is omitted from both substantive and demonstrative, and in Ezr 312, the demonstrative even precedes (זֶה חַבַּ֫יִת=הַבַּ֫יִת הַזֶּה), this is obviously due in both cases to a radical corruption of the text (not only in the words quoted). In Jos 912 לַחְמֵ֫נוּ is either in apposition to the independent demonstrative זֶה (= this our bread, &c.), as in verse 13 נֹאדוֹת is to אֵ֫לֶּה, or they are complete sentences, this is our bread, &c. So also in Ex 321 משֶׁה (= that [iste] Moses, &c.), and in ψ 4815 אֱלֹהִים are to be taken in apposition to זֶה. On ψ 688 and Is 2313 cf. §136d.
[127a] When a genitive, determined in any way, follows a nomen regens, it also determines the nomen regens, which, according to §89a, is always in the construct state. Moreover, every pronominal suffix attached to a substantive is, according to §33c, to be considered as a genitive determinate by nature. An independent genitive may be determinate—
(a) By its character as a proper name (according to §125a), e.g. דְּבַר יְהֹוָה the word of the Lord.
