That was my first reaction, but then I thought that the context seems
to indicate an active verb, not a passive one. That's why I brought up
the question.

Well I could be wrong.

Thanks.

Or is it a verb TKK or maybe TKH, as also used in  Deuteronomy 33:3 and Ezekiel 22:20–22?  Or have I made an elementary mistake that I need someone to slap me on  the side of the head to recognize?    Karl W. Randolph.
