Forgive my "piggy-backing" on your reply but I have not so far received the 
original posting on this topic ( although I can see it in the archives ). 
Rather ironic, that, since it came from the same domain as my own <g>.

BTW, the original poster seems to have misread the versification -- it 
should read 2:12

You, of course, are right about the separate accent systems for Pss, Jb and 
Prov. The insert, and the "bookmarker" which came with my printed edition 
of BHS list the accent as " pazer " ( macron over both vowels ) with a > 
cf. I 15 < where I = Job.

Could I add another guide to BHS?
