BDB page 400 (left col. bottom) equates mywM lywM in Esth 3:7
with mywM )l ywM in 1Chr. 16:23 and glosses it "from day to day."

Of course BDB are not infallible just like Waltke/O'Conner are not
infallible even though I have known people, 30 years ago, who thought Waltke
was something comparable to a greek god, I don't think he has ever claimed
to be infallible. I met him once a decade ago. Seemed rather human :-)
