Lance Petersen asked:  I noticed that the negative was spelled
Lamed-Vav-Aleph (verse 10). I'd never seen it spelled like that before, can
any Scroll Scholars help with an explanation?

Lance, This is merely the plene spelling.   VAV was used regularly to
indicate long "O" or "U" vowels before the use of Dot Holem.
