are the way that some nouns and adjectives are made of verbs usually with a
final heh, though also of some with a doubled ayin. This will need to be
studied more deeply, but on first blush it appears that this half of the
verse should be translated as “crushed bones should be cheerful”. In other
words, DKYT is an adjective, not a verb, and is connected to (CMWT. Hence
there is no reason for )$R to be in the sentence.
