Thanks for that, Carl.
Rahlfs has the iota subscript, Brenton does not.
And I perhaps jumped to the conclusion that Greg had consulted Brenton 
because of the absence of iota subscript in his citation.
Hence I dealt with the Brenton translation.

My "conclusion-jumping" was based, in part at least, on the observation on 
this list that "little Greekers" tend to use Brenton, whereas the Big ones 
wouldn't dream of using anything but Rahlfs.
But then they don't need the crutch of the parallel English, do they>

So my internalized/externalized contrast now falls, of course' but it does 
leave the gulf between RUACH and the Greek.
