[b-hebrew] $dy in Job LXX

Taking a look at the rendering of $dy in the LXX of Job, the most striking
divergence from the norm was Job 8:3  ho ta panta poiesas "He who created
all things."  In the various discussions of the meaning of $dy (HAL, John
Day, F.M. Cross, etc.) this LXX rendering does not get much notice. Perhaps
it doesn't deserve much notice. The LXX of Job is as problematic, or perhaps
more so than the LXX of Daniel.

What do you Hebrew lexical semantics experts think about this?
Is ho ta panta poiesas a viable paraphrase of $dy?
