"Binchem" is not attested at all.  Vadim, you are inventing words to justify
your theories, which have no basis at all, and which directly contradict things
that the Masoretes themselves wrote.  I am therefore asking you to please
quote a verse for every word you use.  In any case, the word "$imkhem" is
attested and has the exact same syllabification as mikht at v.  I have no idea
what word you mean by gabcha so again, please quote a verse for the
examples you bring up.
