Translated from Hebrew (and Aramaic) originals in the two centuries before Jesus, the Septuagint provides important information about the history of the text of the Bible. For centuries, scholars have looked to the Septuagint for information about the nature of the text and how passages and specific words were understood.
For students of the Bible, the New Testament in particular, the study of the Septuagints influence is a vital part of the history of interpretation. But until now, the Septuagint has not been available to English readers in a modern and accurate translation.
Here is a faithful rendering of the Greek text that student and scholars alike will value. Careful introductions an detailed notes explain the principles of translation and the nature of the textual basis of individual books. All of the tools for understanding the Septuagint are here.
