Could someone explain the difference between (2 Samuel 15:4 for example) עלי and אלי (Ezra 9:4 for example)? what's the difference
They both refer to 'my' or 'me' because of the yod suffix right? One seems to denote a preposition meaning on, upon, above, over, about, on top, atop, of, onto, at. While the other denotes a preposition meaning to, toward, at, into, in direction of, onto, unto. But that doesn't clearify the (true) difference for me. So what exactly is the difference is usage, definition and meaning or are they interchangeable and synonymous?
