And so even with verbs of motion, as Genesis 11:2 מִקֶּדֶם ויהי בנסעם as they journeyed — not from, but — on, the side of the east, virtually = eastwards, Genesis 13:11 and Lot journeyed מקדם east, Isaiah 17:13; Isaiah 22:3 ברחו מֵרָחוֺק they fled — not from afar but — afar, Isaiah 23:7 whose feet used to carry her מֵרָחוֺק afar off to sojourn, Isaiah 57:9 thou didst send thy messengers עדמֿרחוק even to afar. With a following לְ (or suffix), most of these words are frequently in the sense of on the east (west, etc.) of . . ., as Joshua 8:13 לָעִיר מִיָּם on the west of the city, מִקֶּדֶם לְ Genesis 3:24, מִצְּפוֺן לְ (construct Ges§ 130 a, n.) Joshua 8:11,13; Joshua 24:30, מִימִינֶ֑ךָ Psalm 91:7, מִתַּחַת לְ Genesis 1:7, מִמַּעַל לְ Genesis 22:9, מִבֵּית לְ Leviticus 16:2: מֵאַחֲרֵי behind Exodus 14:19 מִצַּד בֵּיתְאֵל beside Bethel Joshua 12:9, מִצִּדּוֺ beside it 1 Samuel 6:8, מֵעֵבֶר לַיַּרְדֵּן on the other side of Jordan Numbers 21:1 +; מֵהָֽלְאָה לְ beyond Amos 5:27; tablets written מִשְּׁנֵי עֶבְרֵיהֶם on both their sides, מִכָּלעֲֿבָרָיו Jeremiah 49:32 + (see further the words cited). So מֵהַבַּיִת on the side of the house Ezekiel 40:7,8,9, מֵאֵצֶל beside Ezekiel 40:7; 1 Samuel 20:21 the arrows are מִמְּךָ וָהֵנָּה from thee and hither = on this side of thee, 1 Samuel 20:22 מִמְּךָ וָהָֽלְהָא, compare Numbers 32:19 (twice in verse).

(so Numbers 25:6; 1 Samuel 24:28 +, אנשׁים מן ֗֗֗ Numbers 16:2; Joshua 2:2 +, 2 Kings 2:7, etc.); Genesis 42:16 send מִכֶּם אֶחָד Leviticus 1:2a Leviticus 17:12 כלנֿפשׁ מִכֶּם, Leviticus 19:34; Leviticus 26:8, Judges 8:14 נַעַר מֵאַנְשֵׁי סֻכּוֺת, 1 Samuel 22:8, etc.; Judges 14:19; 2 Kings 2:24; Isaiah 66:19; אֶחָד מִן ֗֗֗ 1 Samuel 16:18 +, אַחַד מִן ֗֗֗ (Ges§ 130, 1) Deuteronomy 25:5 +; אַחַת מֵהֵ֫נָּה Psalm 34:21; Isaiah 34:16; מִי מִן ֗֗֗ Job 5:1; Isaiah 50:1, אֵין מִן ֗֗֗ 1 Samuel 14:39; Isaiah 51:18; Isaiah 21:11 מהֿ מלילה how much of the night? 2 Chronicles 31:3 וּמְנָת הַמֶּלָח מִןרְֿכוּשׁוֺ.

b. the number being omitted, מִן is used indefinitely: — (a) = some of, — as subject Exodus 16:27 יצאו מןהֿעם there went out (some) of the people, Leviticus 25:49; 2 Samuel 11:17,24, especially in late Hebrew Ezra 2:68,70; Ezra 7:7; Nehemiah 11:4,25; 1 Chronicles 4:42; 1 Chronicles 9:30,32; 2Chronicles 17:11; 32:21; Daniel 11:35; more frequently as object, especially with לקח, Genesis 4:3 וַיָּבֵא מִמְּרִי האדמה brought of the fruit of the ground, Genesis 30:14 give me מִדּוּדָאֵי בְנֵךְ (some) of thy son's love-apples, Genesis 33:15; Exodus 12:7; Exodus 17:5; Leviticus 18:30; Leviticus 20:2; Numbers 11:17; Numbers 13:23; 1 Kings 12:4; Isaiah 39:7; Isaiah 47:13; Amos 2:11; Daniel 8:10 +, Songs 1:2 ישׁקני מִנְּשִׁיקוֺת מִּיו let him kiss me (with) some of the kisses etc., Psalm 72:15; Psalm 137:3 מִשִּׁיר צִיּוֺן (some) of the songs of Zion, Job 11:6 (Ges RVm) + often; in late Hebrew note also יֵשׁ מִן ֗֗֗ there are some of . . . Nehemiah 5:5; מֵהֶם ֗֗֗ מֵהֶם ֗֗֗ some. . . others. . . 1 Chronicles 9:28f. (as in Aramaic Daniel 2:33, and PS2155); מִקְצָת ֗֗֗ some of. . . (as in Late Hebrew) Daniel 1:2; Nehemiah 7:69. (b) to designate an individual (rare), Genesis 28:11 and he took מֵאַבְנֵי הַמָּקוֺם (one) of the stones of the place (see Genesis 28:18), Exodus 6:25 מבּנות פוטיאל (one) of the daughters of P., Ezekiel 17:5,13; Nehemiah 13:28; Psalm 132:11; as subject Leviticus 25:33; Daniel 11:5 the king of the south שָׂרָיו וּמִןֿ and (one) of his captains, Daniel 11:7, compare Jeremiah 41:1; Esther 4:5; 2Chronicles 26:11; Ruth 2:20 מִגֹּאֲלֵנוּ הוא he is (one) of our kinsmen, Exodus 2:6. (c) in a negative or hypothetical sentence (whether subject or object) = any, aught, Deuteronomy 16:4 ולא ילין מןהֿבשׂר and there shall not remain any of the flesh, 1 Kings 18:5 ולא נכרית מןהֿבהמה and we shall not destroy any of the beasts, 2 Kings 10:10 (compare Joshua 21:43; Joshua 23:14; 1 Samuel 3:19; 1 Kings 8:56; Esther 6:10), Esther 6:23 ׳מֶּןיֶֿשׁמֹּֿה מֵעַבְדֵי י Job 27:6 לֹא יֶחֱרַף לְבָבִי מִיָּמָ֑י my heart reproacheth not one of my days: with אִם, etc. Exodus 29:34; Leviticus 4:2a (compare Leviticus 4:22; Leviticus 4:27), Leviticus 11:32 (מהם), Leviticus 11:33; Leviticus 11:35; Leviticus 11:37-39; Leviticus 18:29; Leviticus 25:25; Numbers 5:6; מִכֹּל anything whatever, Leviticus 5:24; Leviticus 11:34; compare 1 Samuel 23:23 (?). (d) peculiarly, with a noun of unity, especially אֶחָד, to express forcibly the idea of a single one: Deuteronomy 15:7 if there be a poor man in thy midst, מֵאַחַר אַחֶיךָ any one of thy brethren, Leviticus 4:2b if he doeth מֵאַחַת מֵהֵ֫נָּה any one of these things, Leviticus 5:13; Ezekiel 18:10 מֵאַחַד מֵאֵלֶּה וְעָשָׂה אָח (where אח is a vox nihili) and doeth aught of these things; 1 Samuel 14:45 if there shall fall מִשַּׂעֲרַת ראֹשׁוֺ אַרְצָה a single hair of his head to the ground! (for שְׂעָרָה as a noun of individual meaning see Ges§ 122t Dr), compare 2 Samuel 14:11; 1 Kings 1:52. (Probably a rhetorical application of the partitive sense, though the explanation 'starting from one' = 'even one' would also be possible. is used similarly after negative and interrogative particles, not merely with collective nouns, as nought have they of knowledge (Qor 18:4), but also with nouns of unity, as Qor 3:55 Ye have not aught of (= any) god, except Him; 19:19 dost thou perceive even one of them? 6:59 there falleth not even a single leaf (noun of individual meaning) without His knowing it. See further Thes, and WAG. ii. § 48 f. b), (e) (rare) specifying the objects, or elements, of which a Genus consists (the Arabic , min of explication, WAG. ii. § 48 g): Genesis 6:2 אשׁר בחרו מכל consisting of all whom they chose, Genesis 7:22; Genesis 9:10; Leviticus 11:32 (מכל), 1 Chronicles 5:18; Jeremiah 40:7 (מאשׁר); Jeremiah 44:28 and they shall know דְּבַרמִֿי יָקוּם מִמֶּנִּי וּמֵהֶם whose word shall stand, consisting of me and of them (defining the Genus embraced by ׃מי compare both (of them), Abel as well as Cain, and Qor 3:193: Wl.c.). — On מֵאַיִן Jeremiah 10:6,7, see אַיִן near the end.

4 of time — namely

a. as marking the terminus a quo, the anterior limit of a continuous period, from, since Deuteronomy 9:24 מִיּוֺם דַּעְתִּי אֶתְכֶם from the day of my (first) knowing you (so 1 Samuel 7:2; 1 Samuel 8:8 + ); 1 Samuel 18:9 מהיום ההוא וָהָֽלְאָה from that day and onwards, simil. Leviticus 22:27; Numbers 15:23; Ezekiel 39:22; Isaiah 18:2,7 (where מִןהֿוּא = מֵאֲשֶׁר הוּא; compare Nahum 2:9 מִימֵי הִיא = מִימֵי אֲשֶׁר הִיא); מהיום ההוא וָמָֽעְלָה 1 Samuel 16:13; 1 Samuel 30:25 (Haggai 2:15,18 apparently of time backwards); מֵאָז from the time of . . . .; מִןהַֿבֶּטֶן from the womb Judges 13:5,7, מִבֶּטֶן אִמִּי Judges 16:17 +; מִימֵי ֗֗֗ Hosea 10:9; Isaiah 23:7; Jeremiah 36:2 +; מִיָּמֶיךָ idiomatic = since thou wast born 1 Samuel 25:28; 1 Kings 1:6 (מִיָּמָיו), Job 38:12; מִקֶּדֶם from antiquity Habakkuk 1:12; Psalm 74:12; Isaiah 42:14 הֶחֱשֵׁיתִי מֵעוֺלָם I have been silent since old time; מֵעַתָּה from now, hence-forth Jeremiah 3:4 +, מִיּוֺם from to-day Jeremiah 43:13; Ezekiel 48:35, מןהֿיום הזה Haggai 2:19. See also 5c, 7 c. compare Exodus 33:6 מֵהַר חוֺרֵב from Horeb, Hosea 13:4 I am ׳י thy God מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם.

b. as marking the period immediately succeeding the limit, after: Genesis 38:24 כְּמִשְׁלשׁ חֳדָשִׁים after about three months it was told Judah, מִיָּמִים רַבִּים Joshua 23:1; Ezekiel 38:8, מִיָּמִים after (some) days, Judges 11:4; Judges 14:8; Judges 15:1, מִיֹּמַיִם after two days Hosea 6:2; מֵרֹב יָמִים Isaiah 24:22: more frequently with קֵץ or קָצֶה, Genesis 4:3 מִקֵּץ יָמִים, Genesis 8:3; Joshua 3:2 + often; Deuteronomy 14:28 מִקְצֵה שָׁלשׁ שָׁנִים, Deuteronomy 15:1 שָׁנִים מִקְצֵה שֶׁבַע (by which is meant not the actual end of the three or seven years, but the period when the third or seventh year has arrived); מִמָּחֳרָת after the morrow (had arrived) = on the morrow, Genesis 19:34 + often; מֵהַבֹּקֶר 2 Samuel 2:27. — 2 Samuel 23:4 מִמָּטָר; Isaiah 53:11 מֵעֲמַל נַפְשׁוֺ; perhaps Isaiah 29:18 (Kö581). compare 2 Samuel 20:5 and he delayed מןהֿמועד beyond the appointed time.

c. in such phrases, however, מִן sometimes (compare 1c) loses its significance: thus מֵאָז 2 Samuel 15:34; Isaiah 16:13 not from former time, but in former time, formerly, Genesis 6:4 הַגִּבּוֺרִים אֲשֶׁר מֵעוֺלָם which were of old, Joshua 24:2 dwelt of old, Psalm 77:6 days מִקֶּדֶם aforetime, מֵאַחֲרֵי Deuteronomy 29:21 (p. 30). — מִקָּרוֺב literally from near, i.e. recently Deuteronomy 32:17, of short duration Job 20:5, shortly Ezekiel 7:8; at hand (in a local sense, 1c) Jeremiah 23:23.

5 (וְעַד) מִן ֗֗֗ עַד from . . . even, to : very oft .: —

a. in geography or local sense, Genesis 10:19; Genesis 15:18 מנהר מצרים עד הנהר הגדול, Genesis 25:18; Exodus 23:31; Deuteronomy 2:36; 1 Samuel 3:20; 2 Samuel 5:25; Jeremiah 31:38; Psalm 72:8 + often; so with מִלְּבוֺא 1 Kings 8:65 (2 Chronicles 7:8), 2 Kings 14:25; Amos 6:14; Deuteronomy 13:8 מִקְצֵה הָאָרֶץ וְעַד קְצֵה הָאָרֶץ, Deuteronomy 28:64; Jeremiah 12:12; Genesis 47:21 מִקְצֵה גְּבוּלמִֿצְרַיִם וְעַדקָֿצֵהוּ, 1 Kings 6:24; 1 Kings 7:23 שְׂפָתוֺ מִשְּׂפָתוֺ וְעַד; Leviticus 13:12 מראשׁו ועד רגליו, Deuteronomy 28:35 ועד קדקדך מכף רגלך (similarly 2 Samuel 14:25; Job 2:7; Isaiah 1:6). compare 1 Samuel 9:2 מִשִּׁכְמוֺ וָמַ֫עְלָה, 2 Samuel 5:9; Joshua 15:46.

b. metaphor not of actual space, but of classes of objects, to express idiomatically the idea ofcomprehension, so that the two prepositions may be often represented by both . . . and: Genesis 19:4 מִנַּעַר וְעַדזָֿקֵן from young to old (i.e. both included) = both young and old, Genesis 19:11; 1 Samuel 5:9 + מִקָּטֹן וְעַדגָּֿדוֺל = both great and small, Jeremiah 6:13 מִקְּטַנָּם וְעַדגְּֿדוֺלָם from the least of them even to the greatest of them, ib. וְעַדכֹּֿהֵן מִנָּבִיא from the prophet even to the priest every one dealeth falsely, Exodus 9:25 + מאדם ועד בהמה both man and beast, Exodus 11:5 מבכור פרעהע֗֗֗ד ׳בכור השׁפחה וגו, Exodus 13:15; Numbers 6:4; Deuteronomy 29:10 עד שֹׁאב מימיך מחֹטב עציך, Joshua 8:25 + מאישׁ ועד אשׁה, 1 Samuel 15:3 (4 pairs), 1 Samuel 22:19; 1 Kings 5:13; 2 Kings 17:9 = 2 Kings 18:8, Isaiah 10:18 מנפשׁ ועד בשׂר = both soul and body, Jeremiah 9:9; after a word implying a negative = either . . . or Genesis 14:23; Genesis 31:24,29 מטוב עד רע either good or evil. The עַד may be repeated, if required: Genesis 6:7 עדבֿהמה עד רמשׂ ועדעֿוף השׁמים מאדם (so Genesis 7:23), Exodus 22:3; Joshua 6:21; Judges 15:5 מִגָּדִישׁ וְעַדקָֿמָה וְעַדכֶּֿרֶם זָ֑יִת, Judges 20:48; 1 Samuel 30:19: without מן, Leviticus 11:42; Numbers 8:4. Similar is the use of מן in the idiom (וָמָֽטָּה) מִבֶּןשָׁ֗֗֗נָה וָמָֽעְלָה (also וְעַדבֶּֿן ֗֗֗ שָׁנָה); and compare 2 Kings 3:21

c. of time, Genesis 46:34 מִנְּעֻרֵינוּ וְעַד עַתָּה from our youth even until now, 1 Samuel 12:2; Jeremiah 3:25; Numbers 14:19; Exodus 10:6; Exodus 18:13 מןהֿבֹקר עדהֿערב, 1 Samuel 30:17; 1 Kings 18:26; Isaiah 9:6; Psalm 90:2; + often: with two inff. Hosea 7:4: and implying intervals (not duration) Ezekiel 4:10,11 (compare with לְ Esther 3:7 (twice in verse)).

d. there occur further (1) מִן ֗֗֗ אֶלֿ, Joshua 15:21; Exodus 26:28 = Exodus 36:33 מִןהַֿקָּצֶה אֶלהַֿקָּצֶה from end to end, Ezekiel 40:23,27; Ezra 9:11 מִמֶּהאֶֿלמֶּֿה; Psalm 144:13 מִזַּן אֶל זַן from kind to kind = kinds of every sort; with a verb of motion, Jeremiah 48:11; Psalm 105:13; 1 Chronicles 17:5, and expressing a climax, Psalm 84:8 יֵָֽלְכוּ מֵחַיִל אֶלחַֿיִל, Jeremiah 9:2 (compare Romans 1:17): of time, מיוםאֿליֿום Numbers 30:15, compare 1 Chronicles 16:23 ("" Psalm 96:2 לְ); implying intervals, מֵעֵת אֶלעֵֿת 1 Chronicles 9:25. (2) מִן ֗֗֗ לְ Exodus 32:27; Ezekiel 40:13; Zechariah 14:10: of time Psalm 96:2; Job 4:20: with intervals, 2 Samuel 14:26. (3) מִן ֗֗֗ הָ֯ Numbers 34:10; Ezekiel 6:14; מִמִּדְבָּר רִבְלָ֫תָה (so Ges Ew Hi etc.) from the wilderness to Riblah, Ezekiel 21:3; Ezekiel 25:13 מִתֵּימָן וּדְדָ֫נֶה (Co Kö Berthol); without ָ֯ 1 Kings 5:1. And of time in the phrase (implying intervals) מִיָּמִים יָמִ֫ימָה Exodus 13:10 4t.

6 In comparisons, beyond, above, hence in English than: so constantly: namely

a. when an object is compared with another distinct from itself, Judges 14:18 מַהמָּֿתוֺק מִדְּבַשׁ what is sweet away from, beyond in excess of, honey ? i.e. in our idiom, what is sweeter than honey ? Leviticus 21:10 הַכֹּהֵן הַגָּדוֺל מֵאֶחָיו the priest that is great above his brethren, Numbers 14:12; Ezekiel 28:3 חָכָם מִדָּנִאֵל wiser than Daniel, Psalm 119:72 + very often; Hosea 2:9 כִּי טוֺב לִי אָז מֵעָ֑תָּה; with an infinitive (sometimes with לְ) as subject, Genesis 29:10 ׳טוֺב תִּתִּי אֹתָהּ לְךָ מִתִּתִּי אֹתָהּ וגו better is my giving her to thee than my giving her to another, Exodus 14:12; 1 Samuel 15:22; Proverbs 21:9,19; Proverbs 25:7; Psalm 118:8; Psalm 118:9 +; with verbs, Genesis 19:9 עתה נָרַע לְךָ מֵהֶם now we will harm thee beyond them, more than them, Genesis 25:23 לְאֹם מִלְאֹם יֶאֱמַץ, Genesis 26:16; Genesis 29:30 אתרֿחל מִלֵּאָה ויאהב גםֿ, Genesis 38:26 צָֽדְקָה מִמֶּנִּי, Genesis 48:19 יִגְדַּל מִמֶּנּוּ, Judges 2:19 השׁחיתו מאבותם they have done corruptly more than their fathers, 1 Samuel 2:29; 2 Samuel 20:6; 1 Kings 1:37; 1 Kings 14:9; Jeremiah 5:3; Ezekiel 5:6 + often; = in, preference to, above, Psalm 45:8; Psalm 52:5 (twice in verse); Hosea 6:6; Habakkuk 2:16, after בחר Jeremiah 8:3; Job 7:15; Job 36:21; Psalm 84:11 (מִדּוּר) +: note also נֹפֵל מִן Job 12:3; Job 13:2 #NAME?to (Ew Ges and others Hi; al. De); שֹׁנֶה מִן different from Esther 1:7; Esther 3:8.

b. when an object is compared with a group or multitude of which it forms one, especially with מִכֹּל, Genesis 3:1 מִכֹּל חַיַּת הַשָּׂדֶה עָרוּם subtil out of all beasts of the field, or beyond, above all (other) beasts, Genesis 3:14 cursed above all cattle (but without implying any judgment whether other cattle are cursed likewise), Genesis 37:3 Israel loved Joseph מִכָּלבָּֿנָיו out of all his sons, or above all his (other) sons, Deuteronomy 7:7; Deuteronomy 33:24 בָּרוּךְ מִבָּנִים אָשֵׁר blessed above sons be Asher, Judges 5:24 תְּבֹרַח מִנָּשִׁים blessed above women be Jael, 1 Samuel 9:2b 1 Samuel 15:33 כֵּן תִּשְׁכַּל מִנָּשִׁים אִמֶּ֑ךָ, 1 Samuel 18:30; Jeremiah 17:9 עָקֹב מִכֹּל deceitful above all things, Psalm 45:3; Songs 5:10 דָּגוּל מֵרְבָבָה (compare בָּחַר מִן above

2a c: ex in eximius, egregius; Iliad 18:431 ὅς σ’, ἐμοὶ ἐκ πάσεων Κρονίδης Ζεὺς ἄλγἐ ἔδωκεν, 3:227 ἔξοχος Ἀργείων . . . κεφαλήν).

c. sometimes in poetry the idea on which מן is logically dependent, is unexpressed, and must be understood by the reader, Isaiah 10:10 ופסיליהם מירושׁלם and their idols are (more) than (those of) Jerusalem, Micah 7:4 יָשָׁר מִמְּסוּכָה the uprightest is (sharper) than a thorn-hedge (but We from), Job 11:7; Job 28:18; Psalm 4:8 מֵעֵת beyond (that of) the time when etc. Ecclesiastes 4:17; Ecclesiastes 9:17; compare Ezekiel 15:2.

d. מן not unfrequently expresses the idea of a thing being too much for a person, or surpassing his powers: Genesis 18:14 דָּבָר הֲיִמָּלֵא ׳מי can a thing be too hard for J.? (so Deuteronomy 17:8 +; compare Psalm 131:1; Psalm 139:6 + ), Psalm 32:11 קָטֹנְתִּי מִן, Deuteronomy 14:24 כִּי יִרְבֶּה מִמְּךָ הַדֶּרֶךְ = is too great for thee (1 Kings 19:7), 1Ki 32:47 רֵק מִכֶּם: so with עָצַם Genesis 26:16, כָּבֵד be too heavy for Exodus 18:18; Psalm 38:5, מָךְ Leviticus 27:8 (too poor to pay), קָשָׁה Deuteronomy 1:7, צַר be too narrow for, 2 Kings 6:1; Isaiah 49:19, קצר Isaiah 50:2, אָמַץ Psalm 18:18, ירום נמני is too high for me Psalm 61:3, גָּבַר Psalm 65:4; ַ˜המְעַט מִמְּךָ Job 15:11 too little for thee ? ַ˜המְעַט מִכֶּם Numbers 16:9; Isaiah 7:13; Ezekiel 34:18 (see מְעַט; also on Ezekiel 16:20); often with an infinitive, as Genesis 4:13 גָּדוֺל עֲוֺנִי מִנְּשׂוֺא is greater than I can bear, Genesis 30:7 their substance was רַב מִשֶּׁבֶת יַחְדָּו literally great beyond dwelling together = too great for (their) dwelling together, Exodus 12:4; Judges 7:2 מִתִּתִּי רַב = too great for me to give, 1 Samuel 25:17b 1 Kings 8:64 רַב מֵהָכִיל, Isaiah 28:20; Isaiah 33:19; Isaiah 59:1; Habakkuk 1:13; Psalm 40:6; Ruth 1:12: note especially רַב מִן it is more than that . . . (= there is enough of), Exodus 9:28; 1 Kings 12:28, followed by substantive Ezekiel 44:6 (see רַב); and Isaiah 49:6 נָקֵל מִהְיוֺתְךָ לִי ׳עֶבֶד לְהָקִים וגו too light for thy being my servant was it to raise up, etc., Ezekiel 8:17 ׳הֲנָקֵל לְבֵית יִשְׂר ׳מֵעֲשׂוֺת וגו was it too trifling to the house of Israel for the doing etc. (less than the doing etc. deserved) ? (but ? read עֲשׂוֺת on analogue of 1 Kings 16:31).

7 מן is prefixed to an infin.:

a. with a causal force (rare), from, on account of, through (compare 2f): Deuteronomy 7:7,8 אֶתְכֶם ׳מֵאַהֲבַת י through J.'s loving you = because J. loved you, Deuteronomy 9:28 (compare Deuteronomy 1:27 בְּ) 2 Samuel 3:11 מִיִּרְאָתוֺ אֹתוֺ = because he feared him, Isaiah 48:4 מִדַּעְתִּי ֗֗֗ = because I knew. . . So in מִבְּלִי ֗֗֗ , מִבִּלְתִּי.

b. after verbs implying restraint, prevention, cessation, etc., as מִלֶּדֶת עֲצָרַנִי Genesis 16:2 hath restrained me from bearing, וַתַּעֲמֹד מִלֶּדֶת Genesis 29:35; Genesis 30:9: so with חשׂך Genesis 20:6 +, חדל + Exodus 23:5 +, כִּלָּה + Exodus 34:33 +, נִכְלָא Exodus 36:6, מָנַע 1 Samuel 25:26 +, שׁבת Jeremiah 31:36 +, יָרֵא מֵהַבִּיט Exodus 3:6 +, שִׁמְרוּ מִןהַֿחֵרֶם Joshua 6:18; 2Chronicles 25:13 הֵשִׁיב מִלֶּכֶת.
