Re: The letter vav

Thanks very much, Ste. It looks like the plene spellings are mainly by manuscript. You are right about Isa 39:2 in 1QIsaB. I used Logos to view the DSS and it sometimes fills out the missing part of the verse in []'s, and I missed that the last part of that verse was preceded by a "[" with...

Re: The word מו

mo does not show up in a Bibleworks search. Nor is it found in HALOT.
bmo has 10 hits.

Re: Does this word exist?

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oy_vey
