B-Haveray,

I have a little passage here that may relate to our discussion of whether
wayyiqtol and weyiqtol are distinct.  I would be interested in your comments
about the use/meaning of the verb
forms and syntax in this passage, shown translated below in the JPS Tanakh:

Psalm 107:19 In their adversity they cried (wayyiqtol) to the LORD and He
saved (X-yiqtol) them from their troubles. 20 He gave (yiqtol) an order and
healed (weyiqtol) them; He delivered (weyiqtol) them from the pits. 21 Let
them praise (clause-initial yiqtol) the LORD for His steadfast love

Shalom,
Bryan
