How on earth do you justify translating K(XD "as *if* one"? That's
not what it says, and every English translation I have found reads
"as one of the tribes," which means something very different. You
can't just slip an off-beat translation like this into the discussion
without backing it up somehow. It may be a translation that
supports your ideas, but that hardly constitutes evidence that it's
"Don't let your mind wander.
It's too little to be left alone."
