Deut. 21:23 in LHI shows

לֹא־תָלִ֨ין   נִבְלָת֜וֹ
לֹא · לין נְבֵלָה · הוּא
not · spend the night dead body · he
not · (she|it) shall spend|hang the night dead body · his
G · VaI3FS NCFSC · RS3MS

So, it appears that his dead body is a she. I haven't noticed this kind of thing before in Hebrew...is this normal?

NOTE: The table is not showing as right-to-left as it should. Once again, Logos's own forum can't handle Logos's own software. Perpetually sad.

Yeah it's normal. The noun is feminine and the possessive suffix is masculine.

Like 'his land'

Perfectly normal in Hebrew. You should learn the language; it's well worth the effort!

I guess that makes sense...roh'sh is masculine and the head marries the body.
