Note also this single use is a quotation of Ps 111:9. This makes me to
wonder if this is not one more example of a Classical distinction becoming
blurred in Koine. Edward Hobbs is surely correct about the translators of
the LXX; however, PTWCOS being misused there adds to my point since the
reading and memorizing of such error would inevitably blur the distinction
between PTWCOS and PENHS to the reader.
