Lit know
Lit swaddling clothes
Lit I broke my statute on it
Lit Their light
Lit born; the number of your days is great
Or where lightning is distributed
Lit no man in it
Lit water hides itself as the stone
Or Mazzaroth ; Hb obscure
Or lead Aldebaran
Or God’s
Lit lift up your voice to
Or the inner self ; Ps 51:6
