I was wondering if anyone would be able to provide illumination on the difference between the following Hebrew words. Both utilize the same Strong's definition # 2822.
ḥō·šeḵ | חֹ֔שֶׁךְ | Reference example: Isa 45:7
wə·ḥō·šeḵ | וְחֹ֖שֶׁךְ | Reference Example: Ge 1:2
Are these the exact same word? Does the inclusion of "we" in "wehosek" changing the meaning at all?
