How does Aquila translate Hebrew almah in his text?

Post by Mike Baber » June 15th, 2011, 4:06 pm

The Hebrew word עַלְמָה (almah) occurs in seven verses in the Tanakh, viz. Gen. 24:43; Exo. 2:8; Psa. 68:25; Pro. 30:19; Songs 1:3, 6:8; Isa. 7:14.

If someone has access to the Goettingen compilation of the Septuagint, could you possibly provide me with Aquila's translation for each of these scriptures? I am going to get the digital version of the Goettingen from Logos in the future, but I have yet to do so and wish to write a paper in which I need these translations now.

Thank you, and here's hoping someone can fulfill my wish! :D

From the second apparatus:
Isa 7:14 αʹ δια τουτο δωσει ‹κυριος› αυτος υμιν σημειον ιδου η νεανις (οι λʹ νεανις Eus.; αʹσʹθʹ η νεανις 710 Tht.; πʹ adolescentula Hi.)
Gen 24:43 ἡ παρθένος] αʹ abscondita (id est ἀπόκρυφος) Hi Isa III 7.14
Ex 2:8: no note.
The others are not available.

Ken, did you find that information in the book found in the link you provided? I couldn't find it. Do you know approximately what page group (100's, 300's, 700's?) I should be looking around. I didn't even see the Book of Isaiah in there. ;)

I found that information in the Goettingen edition in Logos (by far the best price for the set).
Isaiah is in volume 2 of Field, at http://ia700208.us.archive.org/17/items ... knuoft.pdf around page 500.

Hi, Ken.

I followed the first link you posted above and downloaded it earlier. Now I've gone to the present link and saved a copy of that as well. Is there possibly a third volume also, or is this all that there is?

Thanks for these files!

It's a 2-volume set.

From Field:
  • Gen 24:43 ἡ ἀπόκρυφος (page 1.39)
    Ex 2:8: no note
    Greek Psa 67:26: no note
    Prov 30:19: ἐν νεότητι
    Song 1.5: νεάνιδες
    Song 6:8: no note
I take it you are leaving out of consideration Psalm 46 (title), 1 Chr 15:20, and 1 Sam 20:22.
