Dear Sirs!


As the Greek '(UPAKOH', '(UPAKOUW' are LXX translations of the Hebrew
'$M(' or of forms thereof, it seems - to me, at least - to be a
clear-cut instance of LXX chauvinism to read some kind of Greek "hear
under"-meaning into a Hebrew word. It is clearly an unsound approach.
The only reason anyone could get away with such an idea is that some
sense of obedience is not totally absent from the Hebrew '$M('.

Yours
