[b-Hebrew] 22nd Psalm & LXX

My point was that a previous correspondent had identified the LXX as a
source supporting a translation the 22nd Psalm, Verse 16 as "they pierce"
when in fact, it reads "they dug", irrespective of my ad hoc transliteration
of the Greek.  The debate was how to translate "karu", as "they dug" vs.
"they pierced".  The LXX supports the former.  Whether or not the author
meant "they dug" to mean "they pierce" was not the point per se.
