Description: This book contains verse by verse commentary on selections from the Greek text of the Hebrew Bible known as the Septuagint. Each chapter is from a different bible book, for which there will eventually be a full commentary published in the Society of Biblical Literature Commentary on the Septuagint. The commentary series focuses on the actual process of translation, so its authors try to describe and explain the kinds of decisions the ancient Alexandrian translators made about how to render Hebrew into Greek.
Translations from and commentary on Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Esther, Job, and Psalms
Contributions from eight experts on the Septuagint
Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Literature
