I just wish to make a small clarification.
The MT was pointed from the 5th -10th Centuries AD.
The LXX was translated from its Hebrew parent text into Greek in the
period, 3 BC to 3 AD.
So the LXX was in existence before the MT by at least 200 years.
So the LXX could not have been translated from the MT.
The LXX was translated from a Hebrew parent text.
This LXX Hebrew parent text sometimes differed from the MT parent-text,
i.e. the proto-MT, and sometimes agreed with it.

The commonest explanations of these differences are that the LXX is not
always an accurate translation of the MT, that sometimes the LXX
translators were working from a variant Hebrew text, and that sometimes
the LXX has become corrupted in copying.
