Instead of אֱעֶזֹבֵהֶם, look up אֶעֶזְבֵם.Jonathan Beck wrote:Here is mine. ִI'm trying my best to do mine from memory so I can't always remember things exactly. I have a couple of questions on some stuff.

The thematic vowel is dropped because "near syllable reduces" in verbs. That is, the syllable before the tone (with a couple of exceptions). That vowel reduces to a sheva, which results in a composite sheva before a vowel sheva. The composite sheva can't hold a syllable on its own, so it is lengthened to a full vowel (segol). The sheva that remains is medial, effectively both closing the previous syllable (-ez-) and opening the next (-zəḇēm).
Again, I'd go with a directional preposition after הלך such as אל־תוך הים or (less likely) לתוך היום.
