2 construct קָֽבָלעָֿם (‡obol) 2 Kings 15:10, explained formerly as before the people, i.e. publicly (compare Biblical Aramaicaic קֳבֵל before); but the Aramaic is surprising and הָעָם needed: read כְּיִבְלְעָם in Ibleam, with ᵐ5 of L (confirming earlier conjectures of GrG ii. 1. 99 StaGi. 575), Dr Klo Benz Kit and others
