It is interesting to note that ZMN (zeman) is translated by the Greek word
'chronos' and not 'kairos' in the Septuagint. Although, I do agree that ZMN
(zeman) denotes an 'appointed time' it is somewhat odd that the second
century BCE translators did not use 'kairos' to translate 'zeman'. Does
anyone have a suggestion as to why the Septuagint translators may have
viewed 'chronos' differently than we do today?

Shalom
