Jim, I don't know how you understand the LXX of this line, but it seems
to me to support Kelton's suggestion - which is of course far from a new
one even in modern times, e.g. NRSV renders "until tribute comes to
him". LXX reads:
hEWS AN ELQHi TA APOKEIMENA AUTWi
literally "until come the stored things to him". AUTWi is certainly "to
him" and clearly supports a reading with a separate Hebrew word LOH. TA
APOKEIMENA suggests a slightly different interpretation of $Y than
Kelton's, but could well be a rendering of the same word.
