[b-hebrew] Shabbat in construct state?

Hi Ari,

I failed to mention in that last email that, the second passage I quoted
from GKC relates in particular to the second verse you mentioned in 1 Chron

So what I think is happening here is that in neither of these cases is
there a true construct involved.  Rather, in Num 28:10, the first word is
pointed as a construct, as happens in other places in the Hebrew Bible
where the same thing happens in a prepositional phrase.  In the 1 Chron
9:32 passage, the two words are not strictly in construct, but falls in
line with what sometimes happens in other appositional instances, where the
first word is pointed as if construct.
