Hi Kelton, you said:
I always took the tifha marker to act like a comma instead of making 
something repeat itself twice.  I would take the "ve`et hacocaviym' as a 
third object of the verb `asah.

1.    Please could you tell me why there is no maqqef joining the et and the 
final word?  This all seems irrelevant because in one sense the meaning is 
still one of clarity.  I am simply trying to understand the masoretes' 
descisions here to put this in or leave that out etc etc.
