1.Since the Hebrew has 'lift the skirt', I question the translation of 'white hairs' for POLIAS (anyway, it should be 'the', not 'thy', right?).
The article in Greek, can function as a possessive adjective, particularly
with body parts. Acts 13:16 ANASTAS DE PAULOS KAI KATASEISAS THI
CEIRI EIPEN, means Paul motioned with HIS hand, not the hand. I don't
remember for sure, but I think it works this way in Hebrew as well.
