My thanks fo Mark for this useful pointer.
On this site I found a link :
"Panel presentation of a new English translation of the Septuagint"
which has this introduction
>>he following presentation was given by Albert
        Pietersma to The Xth Congress of the International
        Organization for Septuagint and Cognate Studies,
        meeting in Oslo, Norway July 31-August 1, 1998. >>

In the course of this we read:
>>(3) some Greek words, when
     they are used rigidly as uniform renderings of the
     corresponding Hebrew words, fit poorly into some of the
     contexts in which they stand—these may be dubbed
     stereotypes (see e.g. "will" [THELHMA] for NRSV's "desire" in
     Ps 1:2);<<<

This puzzles me, because both the e-edition and the OUP printed edition of
the NRSV that i have read "delight" for QELHMA.

Of course, Pietersma's quotation could simply be a mistyping, but as he is
picking it out for special mention, I doubt it. Does this mean there is
more than one edition of the NRSV in circulation?
