To: Clayton Stirling Bartholomew,

<< My comments on TROCOS in  Psalm 77:19 (76:19) need some revision. This 
word is a good example to illustrate the difficulties one is up against 
when doing lexical analysis in the LXX. >>

I've enjoyed all your posting on this subject, but this last bit starts to 
make your original criticism of LEH look more like a quibble. Hans-Joachim 
Kraus translates the Hebrew text of Ps 77:18 literally as: "The thunder of 
your roaring through the wheel." And "wheel" is precisely the definition 
mentioned in LEH under the Greek term TROCOS.

"... it is widely agreed that the sociological condition that most 
distinguishes modern Western societies from others (those considered 
premodern or traditional, and those of Asia, Africa, and the Latin American 
forests and highlands) is that modern ones are organized around the 
expectation of continuous change and growth" (Charles Lemert, "Social 
Things: An Introduction to the Sociological Life," 1997:67).
