Dear Sir :
 In Proverbs 8:22 :
  I don´t know why Jerome (Vulgate) translated " possedit me initium ".
 The LXX clearly translate EKTISE ME ARCHN hODWN.
 The question is if Jerome read BERESHIT or RESHIT ?.
Perhpaps some MSS had BERESHIT.
 If he read RESHIT , this imply that he translated "possedit" due to another
reason without the grammar.
 Best Regards
Octavio Rodriguez
