Dear Carl, Yochanan and Ben,

Thanks for your help about 1Sam 1:5.

I was aware of the problems of translating the Hebrew text. A good
treatment - besides Driver - is D. Barthˇlemy: Critique Textuelle de
l'Ancien Testament ... about this verse. He hints at the LXX of 2Sam 12:14
and Amos 9:8 where PLHN hOTI is giving a further exception of what was said
in the former sentence. Carl's explanation as "except that" seems to fit
very good.

Thanks again
