I believe you would find Ronald J. Williams' little reference book /Hebrew
Syntax: An Outline/ very informative.  Sections 262 and 505 explain the
temporal function of K- and give examples.  Sections 241 and 504 do the
same for temporal B-.

do everything for God's glory.  (1 Cor 10:31, HCSB)

> Hello - I recently asked for references and help regarding the 'B'

> effect.  Does the preposition 'K' work in the same way?  I am reading
> 31:18, and that preposition seems to precede a Piel Infinitive Construct

> it differs from the 'B' preposition in similar situations.

> Many thanks!
