I find this statement extremely surprising, almost the opposite of what
I understood. I am away from reference books at the moment. Do you have
any confirmation of this?
I accept that there are a few cases where LXX agrees with Sam against
MT, but have a special significance because of their rarity, indicating
an error in the MT. At least, that is how I understood the evidence.
