Dear Clay,

On the LXX reading STRATIA at Jer 7:18; 44:17-19, 25, you say:

>LEH (1st ed) shows two conjectures:
>
>stratia,-as+  
>     *Jer 7:18 te stratia tou ouranou to the host of heaven ? cb) h#myM  or
>lmmlkt h#myM for MT lmlkt h#myM to the queen of heaven
>
>But what is lmmlkt?

HH: That would be L ("to") plus MaMLaKah, "realm" or "kingdom" in a 
construct form.

				Yours,
				Harold Holmyard
