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...

Re: 1 Sam 15:11

This perhaps suggests that at least for the LXX translators παρακαλέω could bear this sense, even if it's not attested elsewhere in Greek literature. I wouldn't suggest that παρακαλέω could bear the sense of repentance for the LXX translators. I'd say he was translating without much thought for the...

Re: 1 Sam 15:11

Παρακέκλημαι ὅτι ἐβασίλευσα τὸν Σαοὺλ εἰς βασιλέα... Any of our LXX mavens want to comment on the use of παρακαλέω to render נחם? It seems like such an unusual choice, and only attested in this sense in the LXX. παρακαλέω is the usual Greek for נחם (regret, console), fifty-eight times. μετανοέω is ...

Re: Infinitive Subjects of ἐγένετο

Those following this thread might be interested in the 2018 tesina by Sarah Gildea, " The Ἐγένετο Phrases and ἐν ταῖς ἡµέραις in the Gospel of Luke " From the conclusion: What had been overlooked was the connection between the Ἐγένετο forms and the ἡµέρα phrases. Confusion also arose when comparing ...

Re: In Jeremiah 31:21 LXX what is the sense of τιμωρίαν?

The NETS instead takes the words as transliterations of the Hebrew: הַצִּ֧יבִי לָ֣ךְ צִיֻּנִ֗ים שִׂ֤מִי לָךְ֙ תַּמְרוּרִ֔ים And reflects that in the English glossing the words with footnotes. Ken Penner or other LXX gurus can perhaps explain a little better about this? Perhaps a reference to the Go...

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...
