>In Ex 36: 29,30 and 38 we find three weqatals with past
this doesn't address the issue.
nobody claimed/claims that the above are simple past.
but they (weqatal) do represent the same basic "XXXXX color" as yiqtol.
the point at issue was that whatever one calls/defines the hebrew verb,
the vayyiqtol and qatal side together in that realm
and that yiqtol and veqatal side together.
before one starts trying to define the tense/aspect/mood relationships
at least admit that
vayyiqtol and qatal go together against
veqatal and yiqtol.
(admitting the above does not mean that 0% residuals remain
or that the colors cannot be played with in poetry.
but quoting 'time' residuals is irrelevant to the point.)
