<excerpt>Dear list-members,

How would you translate the following:

kurios ektisen me archn odwn autou eis erga autou

By the way, this is Prov. 8:22 in the LXX.


Interesting, in that this differs considerably from the MT. I would
read this as "The Lord created me as the source/beginning of his ways
to his works/deeds." I think it is "Wisdom" (HOKHMA) that is speaking
here, isn't it?
