ומלת והבדי. לה הפרוכת. זרה בעבור היותה מלרע. וכן והכית בצור: AND THE VEIL SHALL DIVIDE UNTO YOU. The word ve-hivdilah (shall divide) is irregular in that it is ultimately accented.138Whereas a third person hifil is penultimately accented even when it has a conversive vav prefixed to it. The same is true of the word ve-hikkita (and thou shalt smite) in and thou shalt smite the rock (Ex. 17:6).139Ve-hikkita in Ex. 17:6 is penultimately accented. Hence it has been suggested that the reference is to ve-hikkita in Deut. 20:13, in which ve-hikkita is ultimately accented.
