UPAKOUW + case?

In the LXX the object of the verb UPAKOUW is most often in the genitive
case with rare occurrences of the dative. In the NT it is nearly always
in the dative. In the modern Gr. (Bible translation) it is consistently
construed with EIS + accusative. The latter is almost certainly the
result of a change in Gr. usage over time. My question: Is the
difference in usage between the LXX and NT due to evolution of the
language over time also? Or is there some other explanation?
