Be careful:

  1. In the niqud:

    1. If the first consonant of the word is הֲ, do not mistake for every word ptr N-d10 preceded by interrogative particle as in הֲבָא, perhaps he came? (1Sa 10:22) or in הֲיָם, maybe sea? (Job 7:12)

  2. In the hasar haniqud: Do not mistake for every word consisting of three letters of which first is a guttural. Look, for instance, at P-d001 and a great deal of those that come after it till P-d031 or at P-d053 and a great deal of those that come after it up to P-d067.


This pattern keeps the qamats along its whole declension

  1. Absolute form of some masculine nouns having a guttural at their beginning. They often mean the thing done by, the result of the concept of the root:

    [Num 13:33]giantmעֲנָק / ענק
    [#]to be a giantmעָנַק
    [Jer 25:24]Arabiamעֲרָב / ערב
    [#]leadmאֲרָב / ארב
    [#]to be hardmאָרַב

  2. Some pronouns of Aramaic origin:

    [#]this, thatהֲדָא / הדא

  3. Some conjuctions:

    [Gen 42:21]verily, but, howeverאֲבָל / אבל

  4. Some interjections:

    [#]it is a pity that...!חֲבָל! / חבל

  5. Qal imperative, 2nd person masculine singular of verbs that at a time are ל"א and have a guttural for their first root consonant:

    [#]sin!, be mistaken! (you, male)!חֲטָא! / חטא
    [Exo 32:31]to sin, be mistakenחָטָא

    Look at Num 23:18 for a rare form of שָׁמַע, hear, that fits here.

  6. In pause, biblical text fits this pattern for ptr N-t036.

    [Pro 6:6](and) be wise! (you, male)!וַ|חֲכָם! / חכם
    [Pro 23:15]to be wiseחָכַם
