CSB Footnotes
Lit and he was
Lit owned in his hand
Lit owned in Joseph’s hand
Lit And after these things
Lit owns in my hand
Lit he did not listen to her to lie beside her, to be with her
Lit there in the house
Lit he heard that I raised my voice and I screamed
Lit I raised my voice and screamed
Lit prison in the hand of Joseph
Lit anything in his hand
