Dear Rolf

Rolf, in your analysis of Psalm 18 and the other passage, you talk about
past, present, and future time. Would your analysis be more precise if you
used Speech Time, Event Time, and Reference Time, as recent works such as
Goldfajn have done? Goldfajn solves many temporal conundrums by using this
(Reichenbachian) system. I think you have mentioned Deictic Time before, but
I am not aware of this term or its relationship to ST, ET, and RT.

With regards,
Matthew
