This is for Steve Miller.
In Job 22:17 the translations are rendering LMW as "to us":
Job 22:17 They said to God, ‘Leave us alone,’
and ‘What can the Almighty do to us?’
But HCSB has a textual note saying that it is following the Syriac and
LXX. It says that the Hebrew MT reads "him." This seems a distributive
singular for the initially plural third person participial verb. The
suffix on MMNW in the middle of the verse is related. LMW does not yield
first person suffixes, so MMNW has a third singular suffix, and LMW is
in agreement with it.
