Dear Charles,

You write:

>Second, he states that the word R)$YT in Scripture is always in construct to
>the word following it.  For this assertion, he cites Jeremiah 27:1; Genesis
>10:10; Deuteronomy 18:4, and notes the comparable construction of Hosea 1:2.
>Can anyone on the list provide a biblical example of R)$YT not in construct?

Please check Deut 33:21; Job 8:7; 42:12; Neh 12:44; Prov 4:7 (can be
interpreted two ways); Isa 46:10; and Hos 9:10. All these verses use R)$YT
without it being in construct with the following word.

				Yours,
				Harold Holmyard
