Dear Chris,

>see that.  Also it is inf. construct.  A noun derived directly from the verb
>and in this sense can ALSO be translated as a VERBAL NOUN which throws up
>other perspectives on how the writer was perceiving his INTENDED NUANCE.

>My question was quite clear in that I was simply asking for peoples' ideas
>on how they would translate this section "eyeh etslo amon".  Amon can be
>architect, craftsman, carpenter, OR if the nuance was VERBAL which is for me
>obvious then one can NOT translate it as a NOUN but in the sense of movement
>ie crafting, skillfully supprting sustaining holding together. This idea
>being supported by the context especially since the very subject of the
>chapter is about WISDOM IN ACTION.

HH: The noun here is not an infinitive construct.

					Yours,
