Wes:
Relax, the hard copy is identical with the e-version

BTW, you are right on the verse citation; in both, the reference is Ho.6:6,
not :7

As to the use of Brenton's version, a _lot_ of water has flowed  between
his and Rahlfs' edition, and of course the work on the entire LXX corpus
has been going ever since Rahlfs.
