In Ecc 9:12 the "ka daguim shene'eHazym bi-metsodah ra'a..." has indefinite
article in "bi-metsodah ra'a" (in a bad net...).
Now, in "ba-paH" it has the definite one (in THE trap).
Do you think that this definite article in "ba-paH" is good and/or well
placed here? Would it not be better "b'-PaH (in A trap)"?
My dear Karl Randolph, do you think that Massoretes were mistaken here at
pointing the letter "b"  with a patah rather than with shewa?
