1. I don't know if Y$UATAH ישועתה of Ps. 3:3 is an older form, a  
"poetic" form, or merely a alternate grammatical form that was in use  
somewhere among the Israelites. What I am convinced of is that it is  
not a mere T-suffix", but rather the personal pronoun ATAH אתה  
referring to salvation itself. Otherwise, it is the shorter Y$UAH  
ישועה ending in HI היא

2. In Ps. 6:5 we find the "irregular" form XALCAH חלצה '(please)  
extricate', instead of the "regular" piel form XALEC חַלֵּץ In  
this construction, the internal personal pronoun E for the actor is  
placed at the end as AH היא
