What’s above refers to Isaiah 22:2. What’s below refers to Song of Songs

Song of Songs 1:7 is still a question with me, and I have not expressed a
determination on it. And I have expressed the possibility that this use
could be a participle.

That was not my question. Are there other examples where a N was not the
final letter before the H, but inserted to make a -NYWT ending?

Where is this one found? I’m away from my main computer, and the Bible on
my iPod Touch says this form is not found.
