סְגֻלָּה SGULAH Ex. 19:5

We read there וְעַתָּה אִם שָׁמוֹעַ תִּשְׁמְעוּ בְּקֹלִי וּשְׁמַרְתֶּם אֶת בְּרִיתִי וִהְיִיתֶם לִי סְגֻלָּה מִכָּל הָעַמִּים כִּי לִי כָּל הָאָרֶץ NIV: "Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine&...

לֶחֶם LEXEM, Ex. 18:12

We read there וַיָּבֹא אַהֲרֹן וְכֹל זִקְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לֶאֱכָל לֶחֶם עִם חֹתֵן מֹשֶׁה לִפְנֵי הָאֱלֹהִים KJV: "and Aaron came, and all the elders of Israel, to eat bread with Moses' father in law before God." The point to make here is that לֶחֶם LEXEM, "bread, solid food', has nothin...

אשנב E$NAB Judges 5:28

We read there בְּעַד הַחַלּוֹן נִשְׁקְפָה וַתְּיַבֵּב אֵם סִיסְרָא בְּעַד הָאֶשְׁנָב KJV: "The mother of Sisera looked out at a window, and cried through the lattice" with אֶשְׁנָב being of the root שנב , a bona fide member of the root family זנב טנף, סנף (סְנַפּיִר), צנף which mak...

Re: אֵזוֹב EZOB, 'hyssop', Ex. 12:22

Evidently, שָׂב SAB, 'old', is kin to שְׂבַע in שְׂבַע יָמִים , 'full of days', as in Gen. 35:28-29 וַיִּהְיוּ יְמֵי יִצְחָק מְאַת שָׁנָה וּשְׁמֹנִים שָׁנָה וַיִּגְוַע יִצְחָק וַיָּמָת וַיֵּאָסֶף אֶל עַמָּיו זָקֵן וּשְׂבַע יָמִים KJV: "And the days of Isaac were an hundred and fourscore years. ...

Re: Is waw Consecutive (wayyiqtol) perfective or imperfective?

Here, Ex. 14:15, is an example of DABER but without EMOR
וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל מֹשֶׁה מַה תִּצְעַק אֵלָי דַּבֵּר אֶל בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וְיִסָּעוּ

Re: When was yhwh replaced by 'adonai?

Consider also the name אחיהו AX-YHW vocalized אֲחִיָּהוּ = אח-היא-יה-הוּא as in 1Kings 14:5.

Two town names that appear to start with איש IY$:
אַשְדּוֹד = איש-עד-הוּא-עד

Re: When was yhwh replaced by 'adonai?

I suspect that the ending AY in אדוני ADONAY is an ancient plural marker היא-היא 'he-he'. It is also to be found, methinks, in the theophpric (as most biblical names are) יִשַׁי = איש-היא-היא , as in 1Sam. 16:1. Also in the חַלּוֹנֵי XALONEY, 'windows', of 1Kings 6:4 וַיַּעַשׂ לַבָּיִת חַלּוֹנֵי שְׁ...
