To begin with, haburah is a different word from havurah, since otherwise you
cannot account for hatef (ex-kamatz) in havurah.
Now, two common instances of kamatz in this root are, of course, haver (thus
haverah, a wife of the youth) or hevrah (havurah), company or community,
which in this context is the man's sect. cf. Job34:8
But certainly not haburah, which is how many people prefer to read the word
to connect the chapter with the NT.
You may also consider a pattern of haburah usage along with peza, which is
not the case here.
