Before you go off calumniating my response, you should take the
time and mental effort to understand that all I did was to discuss
more fully the example at Gen. 38:24 LXX for the benefit of those
who do not have the text and to point out a reference work that
may give one about 45 more leads to its meaning. If this evidence
happens to not be helpful to you, please don't shoot the messenger.
