Subject: [b-hebrew] Genitives/construct state in Isa 9:5

  This last weekend I read a commentary on Isa 9:1-6 in preparation for a
sermon.  The author stated that Isa 9:5 has four pairs of words, and since
three of those pairs have a genitive relationship, the fourth, PL) YW(C,
likely does as well (making it "supernatural counselor" rather than
"wonderful, counselor).   In looking at the other pairs, however, SR SLWM
appears to be the only pair in construct.   )L GBWR and )BY (D just look
like nouns followed by adjectives.  Am I missing something here?  Thanks.
