Dear Mitch,

I think that the reason for OU modifying QELW and not POIW is because in each of
the uses of QELW it is with article and negative. See the following:

19    OU DE hO QELW POIW AGAQON
19    ALLA hO OU QELW KAKON
20    EI DE hO OU QELW

Furthermore, you have the following:

19    TOUTO PRASSW
20    TOUTO POIW

En Xristwi,

Rev. Bryant J. Williams III
