      Reservations as far as emendations are concerned are certainly in order as
      far as Proverbs is concerned. I have just completed a monograph on the
      Septuagint version of Proverbs in which I indicate that the Greek translation
      had a Hebrew parent text that did not differ too much from MT. This even
      applies to the differences in the order of the final 8 chapters!
