I just thought of two more possibilities:

HIlajbe'vIp, which I interpret as "be afraid not to accept me".
HIlajbe'vIpQo', which I interpret as "don't be afraid not to accept me"

Of course, I don't know whether I'm right, and I wish we had been
given Ca'Non examples, in order to understand how -be' actually works
in imperatives.
