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?

Incidentally, the _Dead Sea Scrolls Bible_ translates "bereshit" as "In the beginning God created..."
