Good observation Carl.
Thanks for the feedback on the previous examples. Please disregard my
investigative heart, but I did a search in the Septuagint to see if it had some

LXT Genesis 26:1 egeneto de limos epi ths ghs cwris tou limou tou proteron os
EGENETO en TWi XRONWi tw Abraam
NIV Genesis 26:1 Now there was a famine in the land-- besides the earlier
famine of Abraham's time--
