And here (left) is the Aleppo codex with the silluq clearly shown.
Isn't it amazing that one can do textual criticism from one's office at home!
There are bigger problems with this psalm and I have not pursued them all in detail. It is possible that the Aleppo codex may be wrong - who really knows. It is almost 1000 years later than the last time these songs could have been sung in the temple.
Here is my music for a few verses. Some of the problems are evident. Compare vs 3 - mine (computer generated from the Leningrad data) goes up - hers goes down. And in verse 4 (not shown for shv) it gets worse. What does Aleppo say - is it closer to WLC? I am glad to say it agrees with the WLC - yea!!! Enough pictures - you can see it for yourself here. And if you want to critique my score - leave me a comment and I will send it to you.
