Well, the {moch Qel} is the "doctor of the superior".

I understand the word {moch} "superior" in the sense of that person is
my superior, is my boss, is the guy who tells me what to do at the job.
So it's not somebody who "IS superior".

In bigger companies, there may be differnt levels of superiors, and not
every superior is the boss of the company, but might be the boss of the
department.

To say "superior priests" use the adjective {nIv} "be superior".
