Dear Chris,

>(Proverbs 8:30)

>Eyeh etslo amon????

>AMON is infinitive construct making this sentence extremely difficult to

>"..I was there by him as one whom he could trust"
>
>I do have my own idea based somewhat on the very first use of the word (from

>in exodus 17:12 where Moshe's hands are being held up.  So here goes: " I
>was there by him giving support/stability" (to all that was being created in
>other words). Is this a good shot??

>Does anyone have any alternatives or suggestions?

HH: Yes, buy a Hebrew lexicon and use it. You will find that the word 
in Prov 8:30 is a noun.
