In Ma'amodos, there is a list of the 14 pesukim that have three words each that are found in the 5 books of Torah. Is there a list of three-word pesukim in Tanakh? The reason I have asked this question is because of curiosity.

    @JoshuaPearl If you are right then why is the טעם העליון of the aforementioned posuk (or pesukim) as if it is indeed four pesukim?

    @Loewian As far as site policy goes, those questions are grandfathered in and should not be used as examples of good questions for Mi Yodeya. I assume you wouldn't upvote a question I could pose asking for all 6 word verses that are followed by 7 word verses and preceded by verses containing a Tzadi-Sofit? I assume you would think it reasonable to ask why I'd want to know that?
