Psalms 81:5 - Testimony
עדות 'Eduth ( MSS)
ἔθετο ' Etheto ( LXX)
You have got
to be kidding. The Greek translates עֵדוּת with μαρτύριον, not with ἔθετο.
He's done that elsewhere. Like ignore how the Greek word for name is "onoma", not "sem" or whatever he seems to think it is. Likely because "onoma" does not look much like Hebrew "shem". However, English "name" and Greek "onoma" have very recognizable cognates in most other Indo-European languages. Let's see...
Old English nama, Middle English name /nâma/, English name /neim/, Dutch naam, Old High German namo, German Name, Old Norse nafn, namn, Icelandic nafn, Danish navn, Norwegian Bokmål navn, Norwegian Nynorsk namn, Swedish namn, Gothic namô
Latin nômen, Italian nome, Spanish nombre, Portuguese nome, French nom, Romanian nume
Russian imja, Bulgarian ime, Serbo-Croatian ime, Slovenian ime, Polish imie, Czech jmeno, Slovak meno
Welsh enu, Gaelic ainm
Albanian emër (Tosk), êmën (Gheg)
Sanskrit nâman, Bengali nam, Marathi nâva, Gujarati Hindi Punjabi Urdi nâm
Old Persian nâma, Avestan nâman, Persian nâm, Kurdish naw, Pashto nûm
However, Lithuanian has vardas and Latvian vards -- rather unusual
Likewise, cognates of Hebrew "shem" are present in most Semitic languages. Arabic ism, Aramaic sh@mâ, Akkadian shumu, Amharic s@m.
