Dear Galia Hatav,
How would you explain the fact that in the examples below the same
event is expressed with wayyiqtol in one case, and with first-place
qatal or second-place x-qatal in the other?
- 2 Sam 12:26 wayyillaHem yô'ab berabbat benê `amôn -- wayyilkod
versus 12:27 (Joab sent messengers to David and said )
nilHamtî berabbâ -- gam-lakadtî 'et-`îr hammayim.
- Gen 40:2 wayyiqtzop par`oh `al $enê sarisayw ...
versus 41:10 (The chief cupbearer said to Pharaoh)
par`oh qatsap `al-`abadayw ...
In my _Syntax_ pages 41-43 I have listed about 20 such cases,
and the list is far for being complete.
