Shalom,

 

In HALOT, p. 721, s.v. NFQIY,  sense 1 has "*unmarried*, free."

 

I'm suspecting that this is a mistranslation of HALAT for the following
reasons:

1.	"unmarried" does not fit any of the contexts of the references cited
by HALOT (Gen. 24:41; Jos 2:17, 20, 1K 15:22) and it is impossible for Deut.
24:5, which is also cited under sense 1.
2.	Neither Holladay, BDB, nor DCH list "unmarried" as a sense of NFQIY.

 

Could someone who has access to HALAT, check the German and see if it really
reads, "unmarried?"   

 

Todah rabah in advance for your help!
