I took a look at these LXX passages and first of all the Genesis passage
is a typo, should be Gen 45:16. Have you ever tried reading a photo
lithograph of 6 pt type on cheap paper in bad light?

The Genesis 45:16 LXX passage does (contra Alford) look like it might
lend some credibility to the rendering adopted by Calvin, Erasmus,
Bezae, Grotius and the KJV. I will let someone else work out all the
details on this one.
