Because, IMHO, it is not the "voice" that is crying, but "John" who
is crying. BOWNTOS is the participle used as a noun, referring to John
crying. "The voice of [One] crying in the wilderness...." (cf Mark 1:3).
FWNH BOWNTOS EN THi ERHMWi ... (LXX) is a fair translation of
QoWL QoWRe' BaMMiD:BaR ... (BH).
BTW it's EN THi ERHMWi, not EN TWi ERHMWi, because the noun GH is
understood: EN THi ERHMWi [GHi].
