Dear List Members:

I would appreciate any insights you might have on the following portion of 
Hannah's reply to Eli, in the LXX of 1 Kings 1:15 (Hebrew: 1 Samuel 1:15):

GUNH hH SKLHRA hHMERA EGO EIMI. 

I take hH SKLHRA as an attributive of the third position, further qualifying 
the indefinite substantive GUNH. If hHMERA were not involved, I would 
translate, "I am a strict woman." But how might we understand hHMERA, here?

Your thoughts are appreciated.

Best Regards,

Greg Stafford
