In Gen 26:13 we seem to have a rogue weqatal, W:GFD"L.  The 
two preceding clauses are both wayyiqtol, the following one 
(subordinated with a preposition) is qatal.  I can't see any reason 
why a weqatal would be between these.  BHS suggests repointing 
to W:GFDOL to make conjunction + adjective, but I'm not so sure.  
It looks to me like this may be an example of qatal with the simple 
conjunction rather than a weqatal, but I'm wondering what others 
think.  How does your approach to the verb system treat this word?
