Still looking for any indication that the word MORFH was understood as
'essential nature'.
I've just finished looking through the LXX:


Judges 8:
18 Then said he unto Zebah and Zalmunna, What *manner* [MORFH] of men were
they whom ye slew at Tabor? And they answered, As thou art, so were they;
each one resembled the children of a king.

Job 4:
16 It stood still, but I could not discern the *form* [MORFH] thereof: an
image was before mine eyes, there was silence, and I heard a voice, saying,

Daniel 4:
36 At the same time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my
kingdom, mine honour and *brightness* [MORFH] returned unto me; and my
counsellors and my lords sought unto me; and I was established in my
kingdom, and excellent majesty was added unto me.

Daniel 5:
6 Then the king's *countenance* [MORFH] was changed, and his thoughts
troubled him, so that the joints of his loins were loosed, and his knees
smote one against another.

9 Then was king Belshazzar greatly troubled, and his *countenance* [MORFH]
was changed in him, and his lords were astonied.

10 Now the queen, by reason of the words of the king and his lords, came
into the banquet house: and the queen spake and said, O king, live for ever:
let not thy thoughts trouble thee, nor let thy *countenance* [MORFH] be
changed:

Daniel 7:
28 Hitherto is the end of the matter. As for me Daniel, my cogitations much
troubled me, and my *countenance* [MORFH] changed in me: but I kept the
matter in my heart.

Obviously no mention of 'essential nature' yet...

Jonathan Burke.
