In Hebrew, a personal pronoun in its absolute form, placed after and sometimes even before a suffixed pronoun of the same person, has the effect of emphasizing the latter. Dr. Poebel argues that in a great many cases of an absolute personal pronoun being followed by a nominal qualification — traditionally taken to form a nominal sentence — the nominal qualification is in reality an apposition to the preceding absolute personal pronoun.
