Doesn't take much searching to discover a pattern here.
While we're identifying patterns, it seems to me that διανοίγω tends have body parts as its object (eyes, ears, mouth, womb).

Tov maps פטר to διανοῖγον which I cannot explain.
The translator probably read פתח “opens”.

Re: Exodus 13:1

Do you have access to any other lexica, dictionaries, or word books? LSJ, Muraoka’s GELS, Brill’s DAG, LEH would be some of the first places I’d look.

Re: Where to find Septuagint manuscript transcriptions ?

I'm in a similar boat, so will add mine question. Has El Texto Antioqueno de la Biblia Griega been digitized, or is there a Lucianic version that has? I am digging into the discourse motivations for translation techniques of kaige features in Reigns. Thanks! Not that I know of. Transcriptions of th...

Re: κατέχω ("repair") in LXX 2 Esdras 13:4-32 (Nehemiah 3)

FWIW, the usual Hebrew root translated as a form of κατέχω is אחז, which has a silent first radical, and the other two radicals appear (in that order) in חָזַק. So I'm thinking we should consider visual and phonetic mistakes on the part of the translator (or copyist). Would you draw that conclusion...

Re: κατέχω ("repair") in LXX 2 Esdras 13:4-32 (Nehemiah 3)

The verb "κατέχω" is used in 2 LXX Esdras 13:4-32 (Nehemiah 3:4-32), presumably, to render the Hebrew “חָזַק” (chazaq) - strength. ... Given that description, it's hard to wrap my head around how the translator got "κατέχω" from “חָזַק” (chazaq). ... Can anyone shed any light on this? FWIW, the usu...

Re: Who was loathed in Exodus 1:12?

Exactly; thanks, Barry.
Phillip, if you want to retain the passive-looking form, you can think of βδελύσσομαι as "I am disgusted". Εβδελύσσοντο would correspond to "the Egyptians were disgusted by the sons of Israel."
