Hebrew-Greek interlinear of OT

Post by GlennDean » December 22nd, 2014, 12:14 am

Hi:

I've been searching for an interlinear of the OT (Hebrew) and the Greek. It would be great if the Greek was the LXX, translating the OT.

I can't seem to find anything like this (I've seen interlinears with Hebrew/English (of the OT) and Greek/English (of the NT), but I'm looking for Hebrew/Greek (of the OT).

Thank-you for any assistance,

Glenn

I thought the STEP bible would do that but I couldn't get it to work.

The following options aren't interlinears, but I think you should consider them instead of trying to find an interlinear. :)
(1) TheWord (downloadable from http://theword.net/)
(2) CrossWire (online at http://www.crosswire.org/study/parallel ... &key=gen+1)
(3) Unbound Bible (online at http://unbound.biola.edu/index.cfm?meth ... ncedSearch, with apocrypha)
(For all of them you can put whatever modules you want in parallel)

Don't forget that an interlinear can easily mislead one into thinking that two words or phrases from different languages are equivalents, when in fact usually the context and grammatical structure is essential in deciding the meaning. Not only that, the grammatical structure is never expressed by any interlinear (as far as I have seen). Also, the Hebrew writings don't say the same thing as the Septuagint in many places, and we cannot assume that they correspond even in meaning. In other words, we have to read individually and understand separately each of them before even comparing what they say. These also make an interlinear for say the WLC and the LXX quite impossible.

Thanxs Stirling, that site definitely looks promising (and I love the pointing vowels for the Hebrew, easy to read which is a big plus for me) - I also couldn't quite get the interlinear to work, but I need to play with it some more.

Mapping translation equivalents between the Masoretic Text and the LXX isn't as easy as with modern language translations. For one thing, the Hebrew text used for some books of the LXX is quite different from Masoretic Text. Also the translation methods in the LXX differ significantly from book to book. There is a tool MT- LXX Parallel aligned texts developed by Emanuel Tov (Hebrew U, Jerusalem) for identifying translation equivalents. This tool might be available free of charge somewhere. You might check out http://biblecrawler.org which has the tool. I don't know ANYTHING about http://biblecrawler.org so this isn't a recommendation.

Parallel aligned texts between the Hebrew Bible and LXX/OG have been available for free on the web for at least twenty years. Here's a link: http://ccat.sas.upenn.edu/gopher/text/r ... /parallel/

Speaking for my own decision. I asked a question similar to yours on B-Hebrew some time ago. My knowledge of Greek is workable for most of the demands I put on it, but my Hebrew is probably not even good enough to be called "mine". I had the idea that I could use my knowledge of Greek to help me learn Hebrew - both to push the envelope of my Greek, and to learn Hebrew.

After getting a few good replies and thinking about the issue for a while, I came to the conclusion that if I didn't know enough of the Hebrew to be able to find the correspondence between the Greek and Hebrew words myself, I was probably going to be just tinkering unproductively with highly organised, but inaccessible information. I came to the conclusion that a Hebrew - English - Grammar interlinear with less language processing overhead would serve me better. Mind you, that is just my own opinion about my own situation.
