I compare the word HBY)TNY in 2Sa 7:18 with the word HBY)TNW in Nm 16:14 and 
I wonder why the first has patah under taw while the latter has qamats 
instead.

I assume these are words of the same structural pattern, with the only 
difference of the personal pronoun at the end.

Is there any good reason for this different vowels in structurally identical 
words?
