My friend Karl,
First of all: I'm Pere (and not Père). "Pere" = Peter (in Catalan, my mother

Secondly, it is quite an oddity for me that "dikita" (or DKYT) is an
This is a Piel form, second person singular masculine. The same as "tsivita"
in Ps 7:7
I thought that the sentence is (or means)
"The bones that you crushed will rejoice"
This is why I thought an "asher" should be there: "tagelna 'atsamot asher
Assuming that 'DKYT' is an adjective.... can you bring here other similar
adjectives (within the bible, of course) that are like this?
