312 Numerals a feminine

by Zeev Ben-Hayyim
312  Numerals a feminine ending to an ordinal number, e. g., m- rwy  1/ 10 — rrvwy  a group of 10 ( 1 χ 10). Only the context can establish the intended meaning. 5.6 Multiplicatives Forms: tnasni mra, meaning both  double and second; 1 0 sibbu  yaw ( Gn 29: 27) and the dual form sibbuwwaam ( Lv 12: 5);  äsor Tiwy. Note: It is not certain whether the noun - nwy as pronounced means  ten­fold; in Gn 24: 55 SP reads τζππ where the Jewish Pentateuch reads nwy, and in other verses SAV translates - nwy as =  tenth. 5.6.1 The form sibbu is undoubtedly intended to mean  sevenfold, like words of this pattern in Aramaic and M H Its source may be * sabo ( yaw) and the gemination secondary ( see 1.5.3.3[ 2]). Note that the name of the festival myaw is pronounced säbäot, which is a plural form of the number seven ( i. e., seven weeks), an interesting parallel to a non- existent TH plural niyaw*. The form oviyaw ( Gn 4: 15,24) is pronounced sibbuwwätädtn, and it has already been noted ( see n. 5 below) that the word is not to be taken as a number but as meaning  surplus or  even more so, derived from the root n naw, and there is consequently no evidence for expressing a multiple by the ending w*-. 5.6.2 Worthy of special note is the expression of the multiple by means of the numeral im in SP Ex 22: 6,8: a w i n x , as in Aramaic usage, such as nyaw  rn in Dan 3: 19, and the M H expression ( naai) n a a n n x t y . 1 0 In Hammelis, LOT II, 512, it as translated as ηνκΧΏ ( double) and as τ  η  second; and in Ab Isdas Turjuman ( LOT I, Kp and Op) there is also the translation 3xn.
