    Amazing to see this - a Latin/Hebrew ketiv/qere! What is the "purpose" of
    the vowels under the Latin letters? They would seem to be redundant to
    me; or are they meant to insure correct pronunciation as an acronym,
    something like "ah"+ "eh" + "gay", instead of as a word, something like
    "a'eg"? Obviously this cannot be viewed as a parallel spelling
    (transliteration) because there is no gimel in the Hebrew.
