you raised this question on last October.
Our friend Randall Buth wrote this:
* Karl's suggestion of a piel from '.y.d. is bogus Hebrew
(an impossible suggestion).*
*Psalm 31.12 is presenting 'elipsis' in its second clause.*
Were the raisons then provided (by me and others) against the possibility of
M)D as a Pi'el (*) form not convincing?
Maybe you did not read those posts?
(*) You write now "puel". Do you mean "pual"?
