Can anyone tell me please why   --  M'RaCHeFeT is so pointed (ie with two
segols) and presumably it's Feminine, a participle, (I only know that it's
Piel from Shoshan)? but its very lack of consistency in English translation
suggests an unusual wording for whatever the Spirit of God was supposed to
be doing.

Thanking you richly - Chris.
