[b-hebrew] The lazy dog

You should delete from your list Neh 3:15; Isa. 17:11, and Dan 5:7, 
because these verses do not have a samekh as Biblical text (that is to 
say: they have only a small samekh at the end of the verse, to indicate 
a closed paragraph).

(If you want me to send you the BibleWorks ASE search to find only these 
verses, let me know, please.)

If you do not want to make a distinction between sin and shin, the list 
becomes longer (26 verses): Exo. 16:16; Deu. 4:34; Isa. 23:13; 2Ki. 
4:39; 6:32; 7:8; 2Ch 26:11; Ezr. 7:28; Neh. 3:7; Est. 3:13; Eccl. 4:8; 
Isa. 5:25; 66:17; Jer. 22:3; 32:29; Ezek. 17:9; 38:12; Dan. 2:45; 3:22; 
4:20; 7:19; Hos. 10:8; 13:2; Amos. 9:13; So 3:8; Zech. 6:11.

Best wishes,
