Remember I said U and I are gender neutral. They are used  
interchangeably for variation, with no regard to gender. I make the  
substitutions U=HU and I=HI just for elucidation, to recall the stand- 
alone personal pronouns. The personal pronouns HU and HI are by  
themselves compounds: HU=H+U, and HI=H+I. The word in Isa. 54:11 is  
NUXAMAH=N+(H)U+XAMA+H from the root NXM, where the U (=HU) is for BAT  
ZION (as mentioned in 1:8) and the last H (=HI) is for the gender.
