Chan eil dad a fhios 'am, mur an d' rinn iad mearachd ann an litreachadh,
agus 's e "pilistear" a th' ann.......
Isn't (a) thing of knowledge at-me unless they made a mistake in spelling,
and it's "pillar" that is in-him.
I haven't the foggiest unless they made a mistake in the spelling and it's
"pilistear" ( philisteir in the genitive)  that they mean.

Also, why isn't "bheag" in the genitive???? I'm getting confused
again......... Anybody else got any answers?

Le meas,
Aonghas
