I can't remember what the long vertical line means in BHS, nor can I find it any of my grammars. Can anyone remind me of what it means? It's in Jer 23:6 below between YHWH and tsidkenu:

Jer 23:6 ‏ יְהוָ֥ה ׀ צִדְקֵֽנוּ׃ ס

It's the paseq, which is part of the cantillation on the divine name in this case (legarmeh, which is the munah under it plus the following paseq). See GKC, 15f #13, or the "Tabula Accentuum" bookmark usually distributed with printed copies of BHS.

Hope that helps!
