I've also wondered about PATHR being used in a "non-gender-
specific" sense. E.g., in Heb 11:23

        "By faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden for
        three months by his parents ( PATERWN )..."

One would think PATER would be "father", but in regard to
Ex 2:2-3 Moses' mother

        "hid him for three months. But when she could hide
        him no longer, she got a wicker basket ... then she
        put the child into it..."

What do you think? Are there other examples?
