RE: Questions on spelling
> Dabid ?

"DABID" and "DAUID" were both pronounced the same way [dhavidh] in Later
Koine Greek. So Greek manuscripts tended to spell it more than one than one

For more introduction to this phenomenon, please listen to the Demo Greek
CD and consult the notes that accompany it.
Coffee time: and some keep asking why they should know Emic Koine
