with regard to what you wrote:
Every time I read this, I stop and puzzle over it. And when I look at
translations, it is obvious that I am not the only one.
One option is that here we have a corrupted text.
Another that came to me this morning is that ?? PN does not mean ?lest?
rather it is the imperative of ??? PNH meaning ?to face, turn towards?.
I would suggest that PN is indeed related to PNH always.
PNH means: "to show different face, to face, to turn, to give s.th priority, to turn away, to turn out, to prepare a surface, to clear out, toempty out."
PN when we think of it as meaning lest, more specifically and literally means :
"about facing from the case that"
Gen3:3 = And you shall not touch it about facing from the case that you shall die
Gen3:22 = And now, about facing from the case that he would send forth his hand
Gen11:4 = And we shall make for us a name, about facing from the case that we would be scattered about the face of the earth
Pr5:6 = About facing from the case that she would ponder a path of life, her paths wander, she would not know it.
