I am not sure how to divide and classify רוּחַ. Can anyone tell me if this should be considered one closed syllable (CVC) since shureq and the furtive patach are joined in pronunciation? And do we give the vowel combo (shureq/patach) a long classification? Thanks!

Mark, ruach is CVC. In certain words a final guttural will require a furtive patach. In Accordance BH, and in some other texts with Hebrew the patach is misaligned. The ruach word may be either feminine or masculine, only noted of course when the word is the subject of a verb. In Ezekiel 2:2 the prophet has ruach as the subject of two verbs (common in Ezekiel) and both verbs are feminine. However in Ezekiel 11:5 "ruach of YHWH" is used with two verbs with the first 'to fall' being feminine, and the second 'to speak' being masculine. By the way, it might be helpful to note that the plural of ruach is ruchot, with the patach dropped. i trust these little 'tidbits' of information might be useful. Harold.

Thank you Harold, for those insights and the confirmation. Regarding the misaligned furtive patach, I noticed that also in the BHS but imagine it's not an issue for those who know what to look for and have a grasp on the vocabulary. Curious though if that could be addressed in future updates of the BHS or if the Quinta will have it. Likely the patach issue springs from the e-text Accordance received.

I believe the problem is not in the texts but rather in the fonts that display them.
