It can happen in cases where the regular rules for use of final forms
are not obeyed. I understand that non-final pe is sometimes used word
finally for a P sound rather than an F sound. Is that right? There are
also a few anomalous forms in the Bible. For example, in Job 38:1 the
form (unpointed) מנ is found. This should be a variant of מן and sorted
next to it, but a code point ordered sort of words in the Bible would
find these words separated by compounds like מן־הארץ.
