We are reading through the Joseph story in Genesis. In reading the passage
about Joseph interpreting Pharaoh's dream, our class (consisting of two
students and the teacher *smile*) came across the form HF$IBBO:LIYM in
Genesis 41.24. Is there a specific reason for there being no daghesh in
the shin? One more thing: in the Leningrad tradition, there _is_ a daghesh
and a patakh. We use the BHS in class and this is the one in which the
daghesh is missing and the vowel of the heh is a qamets (A --> F). Is
there an explanation for such a difference in tradition and what is the
significance of the BHS reading?
Thanks in advance,
