Two Versions of the Solomon Narrative: An Inquiry into the Relationship between MT 1 Kgs. 211 and LXX 3 Reg. 211
Keulen, Percy S. F. van

Leiden: Brill, 2004 pp. viii + 344. $136.00

Series Information
Supplements to Vetus Testamentum, 104


Description: This monograph deals with the problem of the text-historical relation between two versions of the Solomon Narrative: the Hebrew version preserved in the Masoretic Text of the book of Kings and the Greek version handed down in the Septuaginta of 3 Regum. Over the years, text critics have taken divergent approaches to this complex issue. This study reviews and evaluates their arguments. It does so on the basis of an independent analysis of the main differences between the two versions. The contents of this book are relevant for everyone interested in the composition and textual history of the book of Kings.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Historical Books, 1-2 Kings, Literature
