I'm going to take this one back. The formation is apparently *[juDev 'ej 
Dujvam ra'wI' DagheS] 'e' vItlhob,* which makes a compound sentence the 
first sentence of the SAO.

In compensation, I'll point out an example of using a purpose clause on 
an SAO: *bIQapqu'meH tar DaSop 'e' DatIvnIS*/to really succeed, you must 
enjoy eating poison./ This is *bIQapqu'meH [tar DaSop 'e' DatIvnIS],* 
not *[**bIQapqu'meH tar DaSop] 'e' DatIvnIS/./*
