You have progressed from the improbable to the highly improbable.

You are now suggesting that ywM lywM functioning as a unit is the
subject/agent of the verb? Very interesting :-)

BTW, the NIV/NET Bible position is also that of Waltke/O'conner (page 505).
I suspect Waltke is at the bottom of this. Wasn't he on the editorial
