[b-hebrew] Need Help With Trope Identification

Dear John,

Is this from a Hebrew translation of Matthew. Because if it is, than these 
are not properly "trope marks" at all. Remember, the Masoretes never 
cantilized the New Testament, which is not part of the Hebrew Bible. The 
writer/copiest/printer/whoever used Etnah marks to show the main stop in 
each verse, and the marks that you are circled seem to simply have been 
inserted in order to show where the accent is, to insure proper reading.
