HH: But your claim that the word can only mean the 
English "dig" seems overthrown by the LXX. The 
words "They dug my hands and feet" are not 
meaningful, so the LXX obviously means something 
else. So the word ORUSSW, which means "dig," also 
means something else. Evidently the Hebrew word 
does too because the same problem arises in the 
Hebrew variants.
