I'd like to follow up on the Swahili for a moment if I may; I gather
this morpheme carries more meaning than just "and," so I might
speculate that its meaning is closer to Hebrew ):AXFR"Y K"N than
to a simple Hebrew W- prefix? How close might I be?
A Bible that's falling apart means a life that isn't.
