Abstract :
In DnLXX-Th 3,40 (17), the formula that the french liturgy translates by trouve grâce devant toi ('as to please You') and that Jerome translates by ut placeat tibi is an enigma. The Greek versions offer a problematic text. As it has long been recognized, they presuppose a Hebrew Vorlage which is difficult to construe as an optative form. Instead, it should be construed as a determination or clarification of the principal clause (Joüon-Muraoka § 123r).
