Aside from Sedra Miketz, is there another place in Chumash where a dargah is not followed by a tvir within 3 words?

Lots of places. It is true that darga is usually the servitor (meshares) of tevir, but it's not exclusively so. It can also precede munach and revi'i (e.g., Gen. 41:3 and Num. 4:12,14), and (rarely) mercha-kefulah and tipcha (e.g., Gen. 27:25).

    Thanks. So much for my opus. I had noticed that the Haftorah also had a case of darga not followed by tevir.

    last posuk of matos has a darga before mercha-kefulah. Commented Dec 6, 2010 at 15:37

    Yeah, both of those are among the fourteen times in Tanach that mercha-kefulah appears. All of them are preceded by darga and followed by tipcha.

  • @Alex In Kings 1:20:29, it's not followed by a tipcha.
