Psa. 18:3 LXX 
hemera te hemera ereugetai hrema
kai nux nukti anaggellei gnosin

ereugetai is a middle voice so hrema could be the subject.  yby( is hifil so
the question is can a hifil have a middle sense? Could  )mr be both the
agent and the object of yby(?

These are questions for a Hebrew type, not I.
