You didn't read my total question, did you? Had you done so, you'd have answered differently, because I asked in my original question how does KBYRYM fit in, as where it is a noun elsewhere in Tanakh, it has the idea of a blanket? Smashing blankets sounds absolutly nutso. Or do you have a different translation for the lexeme? What about the other parts of my multi-part question?
