>Dear friends,
>  I had a question regarding Prov 30:4 which reads "...what is his name, 
>and what is his son's name...."(KJV)
>The MT has 'BEN' for "son" in the singular whereas the LXX has "hUIOOI" (I
>believe this is how it is spelled, I don't have the text before me), "sons"
>in the plural. Any ideas as to why the LXX uses the plural in Greek while
>the Hebrew MT uses the singular "son"? Many thanks.
