Dear Jack,

>In Lev 21:18 there is a list of men who may not approach
>Yahweh.  One of them is XRM with a qamets beneath the X and
>a qibbuts beneath the R (let us say - kharum).  Is this the
>qal masculine singular passive participle of XRM?   Are the
>quibbuts and the shureq interchangeable for the qal
>passive participle?  Are there other cases where this is
>so?

HH: It's believed to be a different word in Hebrew, from a different 
root having to do with what is split, pierced, or slit.

					Yours,
