A "second sabbath" may be all well and good, Jim, but what's a
"second-first" sabbath? The word is not DEUTERWi but DEUTEROPRWTWi.

Or are you arguing that for DEUTEROPRWTWi we should substitute DEUTERWi? If
I understand what the apparatus criticus in UBS4 is saying, it is only VERY
LATE MSS that even display DEUTERWi here.
