In Genesis 49:25 it is translated QEOS hO EMOS (my God)

In Exodus 6:3 it is translated as QEOS AUTWN (their God)

In Numbers 24:4,16 it is translated QEOS (God)

In Psalms 91:1 it is translated QEOS TOO OURANOU (God of Heaven)

In Ruth 1:20; Job 21:15; 31:2; 40:2  it is translated hO IKANOS or just IKANOS (The Sufficient One)

In Job 5:17; 8:5; 11:7;15:25; 22:17, 25; 27:11; 32:8; 33:4  it is translated PANTOKRATOR (Almighty)

In Job 8:3 it is hO TA PANTA POIESAS (He that made all things)

 It is hO EPOURANIOS  (The Heavenly One) in Psalm 67:15 (Psalm 68:14 in English, Psalm 68:15 in Hebrew)

In Ezekiel 10:5, it is transliterated SADDAI 

Codex Alexandrinus has IKANOS in Ezekiel 1:24

In Job 29:5, another text read in the LXX "When I was fruitful" instead of the Hebrew "When Shaddai was yet with me"

In Job 31:35 another text in the LXX reads "if I had not feared the hand of the Lord" instead of the Hebrew "Let Shaddai answer me"

In Job 37:23 another text in the LXX reads "we do not find another like his strength" instead of the Hebrew "Shaddai, we cannot find him"

I hope this helps your query.

Subject: [b-hebrew] almighty?

To make a long story short, I was reading a commentary on Psalm 91 that argued that שַׁדַּי $DY should be translated in such a way that it demonstrates God's bounty. I was curious to see how it was translated in the Septuagint so I looked it up. I was surprised to find that it was rarely translated at all. Usually, the authors substituted God or Lord. Is there some reason for this? Was שַׁדַּי considered too holy to translate or something?
