Your best bet is OSNOVA: http://store.osnova.com/Kindle-Bibles_c_1.html
There's no LXX, but there's the new SBL edition, that's FREE, and there's a Byzantine text edtion for $4.99, there are also editions described as being "for beginners" -- I don't know what they're like. I have the SBL GNT and it's very good, but navigation seems somewhat awkward -- at least on the older Kindle 2 (I haven't tried it on my Kindle Touch).

I think this query was posted in the wrong subforum.

You might want to give John Barach's Koine Bible a try. It is reasonably priced and easy to navigate. It does not include a lexicon but Amazon does have one available to use with the Kindle.

Hi all.

I have created an epub and mobi (Kindle) version of the SBL Greek New Testament. It includes the Apparatus as footnotes.
When I get time I'll work on adding the Lexicon.

EPUB - http://theflecks.es/sblgnt/SBL.epub
MOBI - http://theflecks.es/sblgnt/SBL.mobi

More than happy to hear feed back and will make changes accordingly.

Peter

Nice use of fonts, very readable, simple display.

I downloaded the .mobi on my Nexus 7, clicked on it, an app launched offering to send it to my Amazon Kindle account. I said yes, and it said it had sent it. I couldn't find it under Books, then I found a category for Docs, which is where it landed. Reads well using the Kindle App.

I downloaded this for my Kindle Paperwhite; it looks better and is much easier to navigate than the Osnanova edition. It's not keyed to the LSJ for Kindle, however.

I would also consider putting the Dodson glossary in the back, it's available in the public domain from Ulrik's site.
