Dear David (and others),

Thank you again for the info. you sent above. The problem
remaining, nonetheless, is Psalm 96:10 (LXX 95:10) does not read
with the interpolation ". . . from a tree." I expected to see at
least a mention of the interpolation in the textual apparatus; but
there was none.

Thus, besides the information that we have from Justin Martyr
showing that the interpolation existed, where is the biblical
manuscript evidence (textual witnesses) supporting, at least, a
variant reading 'from a tree' being used?

Thanks again, Mr. Timothy T. Dickens
