	Karl, is this a trick question?  Okay, I'll bite.
	"My life [is] among lions (labiyim); and I lie [even among] them who
are set on fire (lahatim, Qal participle active), sons of men whose teeth
are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword."
	Okay, so he was having a bad day.

B-Hebrew Haburim:

I must be having one of those senior moments, as I don't understand this

My life I lie down in the midst of their ???? to ???? (form and
context is that of a Hiphil verb infinitive, but I can't recognize
which one at the moment) the sons of men, their teeth are a spear and
arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.

Any idea as to the two words denoted by ???? above?
