Thanks for picking up this part of the thread.  I don't want anybody to 
take my subsequent silence for assent to Ian's response; I merely 
wanted to satisfy myself that he would indeed find some way to 
explain away the evidence that is contrary to his assertion :-)  I now 
return to quiet mode, at least as far as this topic is concerned.

> Ian,
> Since you quoted Abegg's _The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible_ on the LXX and Genesis, what is the significance of their note that "the precursor to the Septuagint reading of 'gathering' (miqveh) rather than the traditional Hebrew 'place' is found in the Dead Sea Scroll classified as 4QGenh1.  In 
addition, the accomplishment of God's command, again found in the Greek, is evident in 4QGenk."  Is this not some evidence for a "Hebrew Vorlage" for the LXX?

This time, like all times, is a very good one if we but know what to do 
with it.
