So let them not dispute with you .. Is incorrect. It must read as a double negative e.g. I.e. "So let (them) not" ... It seems that the capturing of 22:67:7 has been duplicated with 22:67:8 .. There are quite a few errors like these ... How/who will correct this .. I will be glad to assist +27-83-263-7862 [email protected]

The particle "la" here is PRO -- prohibition particle. La nahiah jazimah.
