[b-hebrew] Ps 31:7 final yod = abbreviated name of God?

Ps 31:7 says "I have hated ..", but LXX and RSV translate it "You have
hated". 

 

Leupold says, "Many interpreters render the first words of the verse, 'Thou
Lord hatest", a translation which is possible if the final letter is
regarded as an abbreviation of Yahweh, which it often is."

 

Can anyone tell me any examples where a final yod on a verb is an
abbreviation for God's name? 

 

Thank you.

 

Sincerely yours,

And I, I said in my haste,

"I'm cut off 'fore Thine eyes".

Yet You gave ear to my voice

when unto Thee I cried. (Ps 31:22)
