Adler number: tau,654

["Who" is used to mean] no-one. David [says]: "God, who will be likened to you?"[1]
The [word] tis also signifies different things: "who understood the mind of the Lord?"[2] Also, "who measured the water with his hand? Who made the mountains to stand with their weight?"[3] The tis there does not signify something completely impossible but something rare. As is the case in, "who will rise up for me against evildoers?"[4] Also, "who is the man desiring life?"[5]
And [there is] a proverb: "someone at Kydon's"; in reference to those receiving strangers kindly. From Kydon of Corinth, a man hospitably disposed.[6]
Exceedingly. "Always someone at Kydon's" [is] the full [version].[7]
