Shihor-libnath does another way by no means happen within the MT and used to be hence unknown. this can have prepared the ground for the conjecture. nevertheless, codex Alexandrinus has Siwr. accordingly, r/jvi right here can't be in comparison with the time period in Josh 13:3; Isa 23:3; 1 Chr 13:5 and Jer 2:18. because it doesn't check with r/jvi right, yet is a part of a place-name Shihor-libnath (MT), or is a separate identify Siwn or Siwr (LXX), in the boundary of the tribe of Asher, it truly is uncommon from the opposite occurrences. forty two The advice of Wutz is from his Transkriptionen, 147. even if, ˜Iaov; shouldn't be interpreted as “desolation”, “waste”, yet particularly as “destruction”. forty three See Rahlfs, Septuaginta, advert.
