A special message to Karl Randolph.

Dear Karl,

often you claim that you disagree -not always, of course-  with the
masoretic pointing of the Tanakh and you say that you usually read the
biblical text in its unpointed version.

I think you may be right but I think also it would be good for the list if
you give us two or three samples of this.

Would you be so kind to do so and clearly show how the different pointing
conveys a meaning of the text that is different  -either a little or very
different-  of the traditional meaning shown in most versions into today
languages?
