[b-hebrew] different pointings of Adonay

I have a question for the scholars here at B Hebrew. In Genesis 18:3, the word ADNY appears with the final vowel point being a kamats. In Gen 19:2 the word ADNY appears once again, but this time the final vowel point is a patach. In Gen 19:2 it is commonly translated as "my lords" which i believe is due to the appearance of suru in the same passage. Why the two different pointings?

Thanks 

Gene Gardner
