Does anyone have any idea why there is no mappiq
in the last letter of the word LH, third word from
last in Num. 32:42? The mappiq is missing in both
BHS and in the Aleppo-based Breuer prints.
LAH (lamed, he) may mean the same thing as LO (lamed,
alef; no). See, for example, the commentary to
Num.32:42 By Rabbi Meir of Rothenburg (Meir Ben
Baruch, the Maharam of Rothenburg). Also see Minhat
Shay by Norzi page 325 (Hebrew Title).
Zech 5:11 -- There's no dagesh in the letter bet that
follows, since there's no mappik in the letter he.
So, he meant to build the shrine but never did it.
Ruth 2:14 -- Instead Boaz said to her; Boaz didn't
speak with her directly.
Num. 32:42 -- Instead renaming it Nobah after himself;
it wasn't really called Nobah
