      What is it that you are suggesting?  That the Hebrew would use two differing but synonymous terms to designate the same referent is totally in keeping with the character of Hebrew poetic usage.  That the Greek would use a single term for both cases only illustrates the difficulty of translating such nuances.

      Dear Listees,
       
      In Psalm 8:5[4], LXX uses the generic word, "ANTHROPOS" twice, whereas MT uses synonyms, "ENOWSH" and "ADAM".
       
      What are your thoughts on this issue?
