[b-hebrew] Blessing, or in softness?

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?
