Re: Christian 'corruption' of Psalms 14/53 to match Romans 3:10-18

Right. That's the scholarly consensus. Harmonization happened in Psalm 13[14]... Apparently I'm a little behind the times regarding "the scholarly consensus" on this issue. This article reflects more recent research: Karrer, Martin, and Ulrich Schmid. “Old Testament Quotations in the New Testament ...

Re: Christian 'corruption' of Psalms 14/53 to match Romans 3:10-18

I think one of the points in the video was that Paul was doing precisely this; and that this patchwork quote was then interpolated into the Psalms in codices S and B. So ultimately, you agree with this thesis vis-àvis Psalm 13[14}, but you don't think this is evidence that such harmonization happen...

Re: Christian 'corruption' of Psalms 14/53 to match Romans 3:10-18

Also, Ἰσραήλ seems to be represented by 2 distinct nominem sacra - ΙΣΛ (4 lines from the end) and ΙΗΛ (at the end). Is that correct? Or am I misreading? Right. The nomen sacrum for Israel is not entirely consistent. It seems easy to explain why they would be omitted in A - either in deference to th...

Re: Christian 'corruption' of Psalms 14/53 to match Romans 3:10-18

I guess my remaining question, which I'm still researching, is why the Rahlfs-Hanhard Septuagint encloses the section in question (matching Romans 3) in square brackets and why the NETS felt the need to omit it completely, considering its wide textual support in the key LXX mss. Is this done simply...

Re: Christian 'corruption' of Psalms 14/53 to match Romans 3:10-18

Note that, despite having the standard reading of "οὐκ ἔστιν ἕως ἑνός" in Psalm 14, Sinaiticus has the variant reading - "οὐκ ἔστιν ἕως αἰνός " for some reason (presumably just a 'typo'). We consider αι for ε to be not a variant but an alternate (phonetic) spelling. The two sounded the same. The sa...

Re: Christian 'corruption' of Psalms 14/53 to match Romans 3:10-18

I can't for the life of me seem to find these Psalms in this translation. 11QP^c is listed under "CAVE 11 Biblical manuscripts" (pg. 517) under the bullet listing 11Q7, with reference to some other books. It seems like Martinez may have included them in a separate volume 'Texts from Cave 11'. So I ...

Re: Christian 'corruption' of Psalms 14/53 to match Romans 3:10-18

The LXX manuscripts of Psalm 13[14]:3 do contain text taken from Romans 3:12-18. This does not demonstrate a widespread conspiracy to harmonize the Septuagint to the New Testament. Lucian's recension of the Psalms does not include the addition from Romans. Some German resources: Karrer, Martin, Sieg...

Re: Ps 18/19 Εἰς τὸ τέλος· ψαλμὸς τῷ Δαυιδ.

I was surprised by the word τέλος here: Εἰς τὸ τέλος · ψαλμὸς τῷ Δαυιδ. I initially assumed that Εἰς τὸ τέλος translates לַמְנַצֵּ֗חַ here: לַמְנַצֵּ֗חַ מִזְמ֥וֹר לְדָוִֽד׃ But can τέλος mean choirmaster? I mean, it can't, right? So what is going on here? Yes, τὸ τέλος translates מנצח here, as also...
