In the text above the JPS renders 'paratz' as 'not widespread' and 
similarly the NKJV renders the same word 'no widespread' yet in NIDOTTE 
the general usage is typically 'break through or burst out'. I 
understand that this verb form (niphal) only appears in this text so a 
proper understanding of this usage is a bit difficult for me to 
understand. Can anyone offer any insight into this?
