Just to remind ourselves, these are the three portions in question:
Gen 3:13 HaNNfXf$ Hi$$iY)aNiY Wf)oK"L
2Ki 18:29 )aL Ya$$iY) LfKeM
Jer 4:10 Ha$") Ha$"(Tf Lf(fM
Lewis, your question concerns the use of the preposition [L] in the latter two when
contrasted to the pronominal suffix in the former, right?
The parallel passage for 2Ki is 2Ch 32:15. Here the phrase is: )aL-Ya$$iY) )eTKeM
which appears to parallel the Gen 3 example. Is 36:10, another parallel passage, uses
the lamed again. However, 2 Kings 19:10 and Isaiah 37:10, which both has God as the
supposed deceiver, both use the suffixed personal pronoun. My guess is that N$) can
use either form (direct or indirect) to mark its object.
