HCSB Footnotes
Or away because
Either their deathbeds or their graves
Lit and she acted as a prostitute
Lit you cut
Lit hand
In Hb, the word hand is probably a euphemism for “genitals.”
Lit found life of your hand
LXX reads And I, when I see you, I pass by
Lit him; hiding and I am angry
Lit creating fruit of the lips
