Maurice can you briefly explain this emmendation by Dahood.

 . By contrast 'atâ is used only twenty times, twenty-one times if one
accepts the emendation proposed by Dahood for Ps 74:9, "Our signs we do not
see, there is no longer a prophet, and no one has "come" ('ittanû > 'atanû)
who knows how long." Eighteen of the twenty are in the Qal and two in the
Hiphil (Isa 21:14; Jer 12:9) with the meaning "to bring."
