Lit justly between a man and his neighbor
Lit you rising early and speaking
= a pagan goddess
Lit you, each day rising early and sending
Lit but stiffened their neck
Or Faithfulness
Lit off your consecration
Lit of the fireplace
A valley south of Jerusalem
Lit command, and it did not arise on My heart
Lit They will bury in Topheth
