and then immediately recognized that the latter reading is absurd as a literal
translation, "mors" being feminine and the relative "quo" masculine or neuter.
Sorry about that carelessness. I was in a reverie on the possibilities of the
English and should have kept my eye on the text itself.

The nature and meaning of this "EF'hWi" of course remains an interesting little
pivot in Paul's argument.
