[b-hebrew] Variants of YHWH in the BHS Text

This was discussed very recently, simultaneously on this list and on the
Aramaic list (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/aramaic/). I would check the
past few months' archives. Briefly, it was determined that the form
could be an archaic G (Qal) prefixal form from HWH (which itself would
be an archaic form of Hebrew HYH). It could also be a C, as you suggest,
but such a form would be unattested in any language from the period.
