I see. I was confused because you said that "PEFWTISMENOUS
> >TOUS OFQALMOUS is appositional to the primary object of the
> >verb DWHi in vs. 17". Your new posting makes it clear that
TOUS OFQALMOUS Is an apposition to the SPIRIT OF WISDOM AND REVELATION,
and PEFWTISMENOUS is predicate to the object of the verb DWHi.
