This applies only to words having no guttural nor ר for their first consonant.
When ptr N-t129 is preceded by article, הַ, or by preposition מִן, from, than, the first consonant takes a strong dagesh. Also in some especial instances in the Bible.
Article, either as such or included in a preposition:
|[Exo 23:8 ]||(the) present, bribe||הַ|שֹּׁחַד / שוחד|
Preposition מִן, written מִ:
|[#]||(from/than) post||מִ|דֹּאַר / דואר|
|[#]||(from/than) present, bribe||מִ|שּׁחַד / שוחד|
Some especial cases, in the Bible:
|[Psa 26:10]||present, bribe||שֹּׁחַד / שוחד|
