4 should not be joined to vv. 5–6, since it diˆers from them considerably, both in form and in content. 8 However, bçy does not mean ‘to sit’, in this case, but ‘to dwell’ (as in Jer 29:5: “Build houses and dwell therein”; and in Ezek 3:15: “And I came to the exiles in Tel Abib, who dwelled near the stream Kebar”).
