While we are on this verse 30, is there any clue from cognate languages that can clarify the meaning of ìòè l(+ ? Could it actually have a meaning such as to put in a bowl, portion out, or something similar?

Karl W. Randolph.

    BDB  cites related meanings  a. in Arabic  - with a Ghayin --  speak confusedly, utter indistinct sounds, and b. in Syriac  jaw. Thus no exact similarity in meaning, but related.
