Hi,

I may be missing the obvious (which is quite possible!), but the phrase 
l)-HYH KN LMLKYM seems a little odd in that HYH is singular but LMLKYM is 
plural.  The next phrase is in the singular and the two appear to be tied 
closely together.  Any suggestions as to how this phrase should be 
translated?  Should it be "there was/is no one like you among the kings" as 
it seems to be in the LXX or "so that there are no kings like you"?

Thanks!

Mark
