Re: The Testament of Asher, Concerning Two Faces of Vice and Virtue

OK, thanks for clarifying. I was only able to find one Greek text for this, although I expect that there may be others, since there are several manuscripts that R.H. Charles used. Regards. Charles (1908), The Greek versions of the Testaments of the twelve Patriarchs but of course the 1978 text by d...

I am interested in your comments, if any, when comparing the Greek with the two translations.
That’s not what this forum is for. We discuss the Greek text rather than translations.

Re: Today (2/8) is International LXX Day...

However, I've yet to find a good "Reader's" environment for LXX reading online. Has anyone found a solution for this? Everything I've tried so far doesn't handle words which occur in the LXX but not the GNT (i.e. precisely when I would need glosses!). I'd also point to the free resources from Faith...

Re: Deuteronomy 5:30

I think I'm beginning to understand what you are doing. Is this right: You are translating from Hebrew into Greek, then translating that Greek into English. If so: This is an interesting exercise, but I'm not sure why you are doing it. One summer when I was a grad student I translated the book of Ru...

Re: Deuteronomy 5:30

I'm confused about what you are asking or trying to accomplish. Are you wondering why the dual is not used? It had fallen out of use by the Koine period. Sure, you might find it in the Sibylline Oracles and other imitations of epic poetry. But it would have seemed really archaic. So the dual (not "c...

Re: Ask your questions here ...

(2) I want to ask questions about 4 Esdras and other OT Pseudigraphia, but I don't know what section to put it in. The questions are a mix of textual criticism and general philosophizing. The LXX section isn't for text criticism, but I think that it would be on-topic otherwise. Maybe it's better fo...

Isaiah Chapter 66 commentary

What house would you build for me? (66:1-2) 1 The words Οὕτω λέγει Κύριος were added by scribe B himself; A, B (followed by Rahlfs and Ziegler) have Οὕτως λέγει Κύριος. Matthew alludes to the sky and earth being God’s throne and footstool, in Matt 5:34-35, “ἐγὼ δὲ λέγω ὑμῖν μὴ ὀμόσαι ὅλως· μήτε ἐν ...
