Sure, the correctness of a proposition is not a voting issue.
Yes, it was a typo on my part. Excuse me, please.
As I said to our friend Randall, I meant: 1 would say "adjective", 9 would
say "verb". (By the way: he said that less than 1 would say "adjective")
Karl, the fact that several words in the Bible have a wrong pointing -I do
not deny this- does not imply that wrongness is the general rule
concerning the masorete points.
I sincerely think that you're completely mistaken at claiming that DKYT in
Ps 51:10 is an adjective.
