Yitzhak Sapir asked:

Perhaps the first question is why you'd predict or think that the
word should be "HaNiTSaVaH"?

Yitzhak Sapir

Hallo Yitzhak, since I was confused over the pointing I naturally searched 
through the grammar books including Gesenius and could not find anything; 
EXCEPT, that the Niphal Participle feminine Singular Peh-Nun verb is pointed 
accordingly, as I have amateurishly written above, (small letters are of 
course the vowels). So what is wrong please?  Hebrew is full of deviations 
and complex grammatical structures, modern languages never require this 
amount of work to learn, so please forgive the simplistic manner in which I 
am trying to understand.

Regards, Chris.
