Seems to me that there is no need for a farfetched, scientifically  
untenable,  speculation on the "influence" of Aramaic on the Hebrew  
of the book of Psalms. As I see it the word תגמולוהי of Ps  
116:12 contains either the compound suffixal reference הוא-היא  
for the giver of the תגמול (that is, by itself, אתה-גמ- 
הוא-ל with two references to the thing itself), or is with an  
ending reference היא for a plural.
