This edition of The Septuagint with Apocrypha (the ancient Greek translation of the Hebrew Old Testament and the apocryphal books of the same linguistic origin) gives the complete Greek text along with a parallel English translation by Brenton.
From the Preface
This edition of the Septuagint, including Apocrypha, giving the complete Greek text along with a parallel English translation by Sir Lancelot Charles Lee Brenton (1807-1862), was first published in London in 1851.
The Septuagint (from the Latin septuaginta, meaning "seventy", and frequently referred to by the roman numerals LXX) is the Greek translation of the Old Testament. The name derives from the tradition that it was made by seventy (or seventy-two) Jewish scholars at Alexandria, Egypt during the reign of Ptolemy Philadelphus (285-247 B.C.). It has been preserved in a large number of manuscript copies of the original, and the Greek text in Brenton's edition is based on Vaticanus, an early fourth-century manuscript, with some reliance on other texts, particularly Alexandrinus, a fifth-century manuscript.
Although it is not completely understood either when or why the translation was originally done, it is clear that it in large measure reflects the common language of the period and became the "Bible" of Greek-speaking Jews and then later of the Christians. It is worth noting that the Septuagint differs from the Hebrew Old Testament in certain ways: 1) the Greek text varies at many points from the corresponding Hebrew text; 2) the order of the Biblical Books is not the samethe threefold division of the Hebrew canon into the Law, Prophets, and Writings is not followed in the LXX; and 3) several books not found in the Hebrew are included in the LXX these books are known as the Apocrypha in the English Bible.
While the majority of the Old Testament quotations rendered by the New Testament authors are borrowed directly from the Septuagint, a number of times they provide their own translation which follows the Hebrew text against the Septuagint. In general, the vocabulary and style of the Septuagint is reflected in the theological terms and phraseology chosen by the New Testament writers, and therefore, takes on particular significance for a better overall understanding of the Scriptures. It is not surprisingdue to its early widespread use and enduring influence in the Churchthat the order of the Biblical Books in the Septuagint, rather than that of the Hebrew O.T., became the accepted order.
Although rejected by Protestants as non-canonical, the Apocryphal writings have enduring value as a literary and historical record of the intertestamental period. They often provide important background and illustrative material for a better understanding of the New Testament "world" and thus the New Testament itself.

It was out of print for a while. I thought I would search again and you had it. Yeh!!!

His words: It is just a wonderful book. I wrote in the first page:(Not exact) The bible has been a light in your life and pathway and when you have finished your course may it be the light and way for L.M. to follow in your footsteps. For him to pass it down to my grandson that is age 6 right now. And I hope he gets as much knowledge and understanding out of it as he has.

The Greek is on one side and English on the other with no way to link them. I think you'd need to know Greek to get any value from this. I don't and will look for another Septuagint more user friendly. I do want to say this is a beautifully bound volume with quality paper and well printed. A nice addition to any library.

Love to StudyAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5August 26, 2011Love to StudyAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I read some other reviews prior to purchasing this. They said it was difficult to read due to a fax quality about the print. So when I received it, I found it better than I expected. I only gave it four stars (quality) for that reason. It's actually very nice. My eyes are not the greatest, but I find that once I begin, they adjust. Great information for anyone who would like to dive deeper into the bible and our history! I think the "Old English" is lovely. It gives a more descriptive view. I would truly recommend it!
