Customer Reviews

All in all, this is a highly recommended book, and a must-have for any Bible reference set.
Daniel Rivera
The Septuagint (LXX) translation by Lancelot C. Brenton is an excellent translation, especially given its original translation date (mid-1800s).
Michael James
Its think (and good looking) binding will stand the test of time, but it does make it hard to open as freely as you might want.

Format: Hardcover
This is a great Greek resource for scholars and laypeople alike! Basically this is the whole Septuagint (the Greek Old Testament), in both Greek and English. There are also helpful textual and translational footnotes included when Brenton felt they were necessary. Also represented are the often ignored Apocryphal books, including 1st-4th Maccabees. The book of 2nd Esdras is not included because at the time this was published (and now as well I believe) there was no Greek copy available.
The only drawback would be that this edition was originally published in 1851. Since then new and better manuscripts have been discovered, and we have better knowledge of certain Greek words now as well. But for the price, and all things considered, anyone wishing to own the Old Testament text most of the early Christians used- in both Greek and English- should definitely check this out.

Format: Hardcover
Javan was the forefather of the Greeks, just as Shem is the ancestor of the Semitic peoples, among these the Jews. This work, begun in 275 B.C. by a group of seventy rabbis, represents the union of two cultures that forever changed history. The Work of the Seventy, or THE SEPTUAGINT, is a watershed in Jewish history and critical in the formation of the Christian Church.
The Septuagint allowed those with little or no knowledge of the Hebrew language or Judaic culture to read the prophecies and history that form the foundation of the Christian message, allowing its spread throughout the empire. In addition, much study has shown that the authors of the New Testament either allude to or quote directly from the Septuagint -a survey look at St. Paul's epistles will confirm this. Furthermore, Christian apologists since the Apostolic Fathers have used the Septuagint in defense of the Christian faith, such as Isaiah 7:14 on the Virgin Birth, where the Hebrew word "almah" -which means "maiden" or "virgin"- is translated into greek as "parthenon" which means "virgin" almost exclusively. (In fact, the Old Testament uses both "maiden" and "virgin" interchangeably, not always referring to a woman who has not had relations; this is a subject of continuing debate). As such, the Septuagint has played a critical part in the history and development of the Church and its theology (it is the Bible used by the Orthodox Church to this day).
This edition of the Septuagint is among the best currently available, providing the Greek text alongside the 1851 English translation. This is NOT an interlinear; there is no English under the Greek sentences. The binding is beautiful and strong, capable of withstanding one's constant use (hopefully you'll use it avidly!).

42 of 42 people found the following review helpful By Rev. VMI on July 26, 2006
Format: Hardcover
I originally got this volume as a way to practice my Greek a little bit more. What I found, obviously, was that LXX Greek is very different than GNT Greek. But the other find that I came to was that it was a marvelous translation of the Greek text. I was interested in just how much the Greek LXX different from the Hebrew scriptures. I like the volume a lot for it's translation and for the original text which parallels the English. I use it frequently in a library with the GNT and the Hebrew Scriptures as a handy 3 volume set for desk reference. I would say that you have to be a fairly serious scholar to warrant something like this but if you are then it is well worth the money and looks to be made to last. Definitely a must have for pastors and theologians!

Format: Hardcover
I have been learning Koine Greek for about two years and this is one of the most valuable editions to my study. I haven't read the whole thing yet (has anybody?) but have already gained valuable insight into the Greek language and the (possible) use of the LXX in the New Testament. I believe pretty strongly that they best way to learn Greek is to read read read Greek. Read as much as possible. This book provides not only thousand upon thousand of stories in Greek, but stories from the actual inspired Bible at that. It shows grammar and syntax that is slightly different then the NT, and that you only read about in books. It also is a great way to do word studies (as many commentators do), giving many examples of how words that are sparse in the NT where used in the Koine Greek language.
As a physical book, it is also of nice quality. Its think (and good looking) binding will stand the test of time, but it does make it hard to open as freely as you might want. The pages are of good quality (while not perfectly smooth). The printing is a little small and you will find various printing errors were words were blurred out. All and all it is good quality. The translation on the side is from 1851 and is slightly archaic. This is hardly consequential though since the purpose is to read the Greek, not the English. I am happy to say that this is not an interlinear, which would defeat the purpose of learning Greek in the first place and just provide you with yet another translation.
Just as a note, I intend on learning Hebrew soon, and hope to first check my Hebrew understanding of passages with the Greek and then the English. Hopefully, in this way I will strengthen my Greek understanding while learning Hebrew. Of course, I also could just be confusing my understanding two degrees instead of one, but hey . . . let's have a little fun.
