Dear Uri,

I'm right here.  You do not have to refer to me in the third person.
What I'm talking about has nothing to do with the Piel vocalization of
the verb.  It has to do with the realization of the Massoretic text.

Indeed, this word should be realized: vat-taxas-saRE:-hu:

It is unfortunate that you do not take the time to look up for
yourself any of the many references I have provided on the subject
such as my own reading list at the end of the link I just provided
to Peter or the books suggested by Shai at the very last comment
of the link I provided to you.
