On the subject line, you have listed bribes, gifts, and tribute.The list
could also include propitiation and appeasement. I have just noticed that in
1 Samuel 12: 3, the word "kofer" is translated by many English versions as
"bribe". This term is also close to  "kafer" (Numbers 25:13). May I just
know if there is any difference between "kofer" (1 Samuel 12:3 ) and
"shohad" ( Proverbs 17:8).

Thanks,
Chemorion D Chosefu.
