I'm no Greek or Hebrew scholar, but I do know that in this case its a matter of speed. If you searched MT-LXX for the word, you'd immediately see not only where it is used, but the corresponding Hebrew word. You could, likewise, search the LXX to find the locations, compare against the BHS-W4 and try to map it yourself for that verse, or even do the same type of mapping using a Keyed English bible. Its just a matter of speed vs. spending more on resources.

So you're saying it could be helpful. :)

I was in the same boat you are now a few years ago and wish I would have gone for the parallel! Even with my almost nil hebrew, I have seen a number of times where it would have been very helpful.
