comment Antonym of benefit
That won't work as I am using the sentence to provide a counterpoint to Who would benefit from... and the identical sentence structure is key.

@FumbleFingers: Yes, I think you're right again. I'll use suffer, and you might as well make that an answer. Thank you!

comment Antonym of benefit
I've found hurt, languish, and agonize. None are perfect, but we're getting closer. I may have to settle on one of these. I'm sure that Edgar Poe wouldn't!

@FumbleFingers: You're right, but suffer is still too strong. I'll go look up synonyms of suffer for a more suitable word.

comment Antonym of benefit
@FumbleFingers: Thank you, but suffer has very negative connotations. I suppose that a slight negative connotation is unavoidable, but certainly a word as strong as suffer is too far. I'll add that to the question, thanks.

comment Why did Old Testament scholars choose to employ “to know” in a sexual sense?
Regarding the use of the word "to lie with" in a sexual sense as discussed previously in the comments: It is used in Leviticus 18: וְאִישׁ כִּי יִשְׁכַּב אֶת אִשָּׁה...‏. So it seems that in the Old Testament לדעת (to know) is used when discussing a specific act between two specific people, and לשכב (to lie with) is used in the general sense that things may happen.

comment What do you call this segment of road between the lane and an exit?
@HarrisonPaine: It seems that "Central Island" is the catch-all term for the rotary center, see for instance page 27. In the specific case on page 32, in which the fact that the central island is mounded is significant, it is labeled as "Mounded Central Island".
