Yes, you have it exactly!  But I'd like it keyed to the KJV.  I know
there would be a lot of NIH words, but not so many that it wouldn't
still be a useful tool.

The idea is to look up a word in the KJV, see how it was translated into
English from Hebrew Masoretic and Greek LXX.  Ideally I'd like to see
the same thing done for the Shem Tov mss of the book of Matthew too.

That would be a good start; I could work with that.  In fact that might
be more useful than trying to map the LXX directly onto the KJV.  I
could do an inner join type thingum to do what I want to do if that
Hebrew->Greek mapping data was available.


          It's not true unless it makes you laugh,                           
     but you don't understand it until it makes you weep.
