mcgafter noun

A makeshift instrument or tool (mechanical, electronic or otherwise) whereby one may gaff (poke, hook, hack) something to achieve the desired result. Works better when it gets attached to a mcgoerie*. Very common worldwide especially in parts of Africa where it has been known to be the tool of choice of even high level government officials for all governmental problems.


mcgoerie noun

A well designed tool similar in shape and function to a mcgafter* yet completely different in it's purpose. May also be used on it's own. Uses of this instrument are very rare and appears to only occur in the countries of Namibia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho and South Africa, as well as where former residents of those countries have dispersed abroad.

@MarcvanDongen: It doesn't appear that adding the first word to the \marginsec{} or rather \msection{} in my tex file, fixed the space issue. But that's the least of my problems right now.

@MarcvanDongen Thanks you've been a great help, so no problem for me to wait a bit. I'll pass that first word in there and fix that, thanks for the advice.

@Marc van Dongen: You could in theory just ignore the embedded image but here is the file. torahCropped.pdf If you look at the Hebrew in TorahCropped the verse numbers are left out in such a case. However if it is easier, just add them along with a comma or two.
