Karl W. Randolph: 
1.  If MWLDT/mowledeth  "refers to where one is born", then how do you 
understand the usage of that word  at Genesis 43: 7 and 48:6? 
2.  Why do you understand the  mem as meaning "where"?  Doesn't mem  mean, 
rather, "from"?  Doesn't MWLDT  literally mean "from brought forth"?  Isn't the 
focus of MWLDT on "descendants", those human beings who come  "from" being 
"brought forth" by one's father?  That's how I see it. 
Why do you see the focus of MWLDT as being on the geographical place  where 
one is born?  Are you viewing  MWLDT as meaning "from [the geographical place 
where one was] brought  forth"? 
3.  Doesn't MWLDT usually  refer to people, namely certain of one's relatives 
(one's father's descendants),  rather than referring to a geographical place 
(where one was born)?
