Hi Dale:

The appropriate entry in LEH has ELATTONOW or ELASSONOW meaning in the
active "to diminish" and in the passive "to be diminished." In Gen 8.3 the
form is 3rd sing. imperf. pass. ind.

If you are out there, Dr. Wheeler, the lemma needs to be corrected in the
LXX module. Accordance has ELATTONEW, "to receive less, be in need."
