) LXX. σοι διαθῶμαι διαθήκην
Here the Septuagint uses forms of διατίθημι, but the wording in the Phoenician differs, ברית
means ῥήτραν and אכרות
means ϝρητάομαι 'make a treaty or covenant with', the verb form of ῥήτρα.https://lsj.gr/wiki/ϝρητάομαι
In this verbal form, the second ρ in ϝράτρα drops out and in Low diacritics, written βρητάομαι, the true verbal form ברית
and affirms the Doric affinity.
Semantics is so crucial and important in the understanding of the Phoenician language and its very much non-existent in Biblical Hebrew, for example with the word ברית
that i have semantically defined.
Here is an example of pseudo-Phoenician
"So how is fattened choice meat related to the word for "covenant"
In the case of the word ברית (b'riyt) we found that it was derived from the root verb ברה (B.R.H), but also derived from this verbal root are the nouns ברות (barut, Strong's #1267) meaning "choice meat" and בריה (bir'yah, Strong's #1274) meaning "fattened." - Jeff A. Benner
βορά 'food, prop. of carnivorous beasts אברה
βιβρώσκω, βοράω 'to eat, eat up בריא
βαρύς 'heavy in weight, fat' cf. βορός 'gluttonous
Here is another example of pseudo-Phoenician, defining words from a non-existent pictographic script
The word דור (dor) is a child root derived from the parent root דר (dar), which in the ancient pictographic script was written as . The first letter is a picture of a tent door and has the meaning of an in and out or back and forth movement. The second letter is the head of a man meaning man. When combined these mean "the movement of man,"
دور διαδοχῇ (διαδέχομαι) 'taking over from another, succession'
The Hebrew word for a thorn is שמיר (shamiyr, Strong's #8068) and derived from the verb שמר (shamar, Strong's #8104), which literally means to guard and protect
