Marianne,

I'm glad that you quote the Bible in Greek, but try Hebrew. The midwife in
Ex. 1:15 is named PW(H, with an 'Ayin. The "son" on Issachar in Judges and
Chr. is PW)H, with an Aleph, and in Gen. 46:13 the same name is spelled PWH
(Puvah), without the Aleph. So Pu(ah, Egyptian or not, is unique in the
Bible.

Yigal
