/Pace/ Jim West, 'iY-KhaBhoDh stands for 'eYN KaBhoWDh, "there is no
glory". 'iY ('aleph Yodh) is the regular and ordinary negative in Ethiopic,
and occurs also in Job 22:30, 'iY-NaQiY, "Not innocent" ("guilty", NRSV).
See SR Driver, /Notes on the Hebrew Text of the Books of Samuel/, Oxford,
1890, page 39.
Woe to him who is not innocent, unless the Almighty deliver him. Hell and
destruction are never full (Proverbs 27:20). OUAI and GEENNA are together
in Matthew 23:15. Back to the D--- word then. As the Captain of the good
ship HMS Pinafore boasts, "I never use a big big D". "Never?" "Well,
hardly ever..." (Gilbert & Sullivan).
