Dear All: Looking at Isaiah 36:16, I came across the phrase (%W )TY BRKH which at first glance seems to say "make a blessing with me". That doesn't fit standard Hebrew usage, i.e. it is awkward and not natural sounding. Could this mean "deal with me in softness" i.e. the opposite of being hard, as in opposition? What do you think?
