------------------------------

 Does any one know how many times the letter Reish
 appears in the Tanakh with
 a Dagesh? 

 (Example: LeShorekha in Proverbs 3:8). 

 It's possible that there are variations in different
 Masoretic manuscripts,
 but perhaps someone knows how many there are in the
 LC. 

Many thanks!

There are variations! For example, Job 39:10 — without
dagesh: LC & Aleppo; with dagesh: Leningrad # 13 and 
Sassoon # 1053. And of course, vice versa.  Since of
that I'll compare both LC & AC.

And I'll definitely draw the distinction between
dagesh and dehiq.



Best & shabbat shalom
