Oh yes most certainly - the "hitpael" examples I have there are the only places where just קבץ appears in hitpael form. Sorry if that wasn't obvious!Jonathan Beck wrote:I’m also sure the hitpael functions reflexivley more often than three times.
BDB notes that קבץ and אסף are both synonyms in BH, so either is most certainly fine for saying someone "gathered" somewhere.As for my word choice, I just used it because I’m most familiar with the genesis narratives.
This is more or less certain. If we based it on the results in the first 900 examples, we're looking at close to 0%.ducky wrote:So I guess there are some cases, but surely these are not the common way.
As you've rightly pointed out with the three possible exceptions, one is a quote, the other is more likely the continuation of the previous thought, and the third is poetry.
There maybe some exceptions in the following 5,100+ examples, but they will be extremely rare.
I wasn't too bothered about finding an exception - I also don't plan on going through 14,000+ examples just to find one either heh.
