BDAG also cites Gen. 38:24 LXX, which says "EKPEPORNEUKE *QAMAR hH
NUMFH SOU, KAI IDOU EN GASTRI ECEI EK PORNEIAS." Given that Tamar's
behavior, which is characterized by EKPORNEUW, resulted in her be-
coming pregnant, I'd say that if EKPORNEUW has any connection to the
notion of inhospitality, it is that Tamar was all too hospitable.
According to Hatch & Redpath's LXX Concordance, this verb shows up
about 45 times in the LXX.
