and had no. In the most correct copies of the LXX, this clause stands thus; 'and they had no transactions will Syria; ' evidently reading instead of adam, aram, Syria; words so nearly similar that the only difference between them is in the raish, and daleth, which in both MSS. and printed books is sometimes indiscernible. Laish was situated on the frontiers of Syria.
