"Eil, Eil": Possible Scribal Error?
ScorpioSniper2 Wrote:I thought real briefly about that possibility. It definitely makes sense!

When I write Akhi (my brother) in addressing you, it's really pronounced "Akh" (the final Yodh is silent). You will see me occasionally alternate, and simply write "Akh" - I'm saying the same thing, but I'm spelling it phonetically that way.

Similarly, "Eli" and "El" are both potentially the same word (1st p poss), if the latter is spelled phonetically (for dramatic purposes, as seemed to have been by Matthew.)
