Abstract

The form ענותו 'his sufferings' (Ps. 132:1) has been understood as a passive infinitive. This form is unique in Tiberian Hebrew. Babylonian Hebrew attests to the form מלאת and the Hebrew of the Dead Sea Scrolls has no less than four such infinitives: עונות, מולאת, רובות, גולות. The author notes that all four Dead Sea Scrolls verbs are intransitive and suggests that in early Hebrew the vowel u is used not only to indicate the passive but also the intransitive.
