Why is there a medial mem rather than a final mem at the end of the word "aram" in Psalm 60:2? (Please see screenshot below.)

From where is your screenshot taken? – user4523 Apr 19 '14 at 21:35
I second @GeminiMan's comment — I checked every TaNaKh I have on paper and online and all of them had the final mem. I suspect this is a typesetting error. – Noam Sienna Apr 20 '14 at 1:31
Ok I guess it's a bug in my iphone app (BibleStudy). – noeclement Apr 20 '14 at 13:06

Neither the Leningrad nor Aleppo codices have that spelling. Nor does the Mikraot Gedolot haKeter critical edition.

As per @NoamSienna, it appears your version has an error.
