Pai: i.e. sighing, [Strong's H6464], This simply depends on the interchange of י yood and ו wav; being written in Genesis פעו [Strong's H6464], Pau, and here, פעי [Strong's H6464], Pai. Genesis 36:39, Pau

Verse 51

Aliah: i.e. moral perverseness, [Strong's H5933], This is another instance of the mutation of י yood and ו wav; in the former instance being עלוה [Strong's H5933], Alvah, and here, עליה [Strong's H5933], Aliah, though the Keri also reads עלוה. Genesis 36:40, Alvah
