Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book on The Septuagint's Translation of the Hebrew Verbal System in Chronicles contains the Table of Contents, which includes the List of Tables, the Foreword and the Acknowledgements. The book begins by investigating the cultural context of the Septuagint translators in terms of their background, task, and achievement, including a rationale for the translation's close following of the Hebrew. It continues by looking at the Hebrew and Greek verbal systems, and considers the historical linguistic context, particularly of the Hebrew language in terms of two registers, a written register that contains archaic verbal forms, such as the consecutive forms, and a spoken register that corresponds to the Hebrew that the translator would have spoken at the time of translation. The book also mentions the text-linguistic features of both languages and their effect on verb choice.

Keywords: Chronicles; Greek verb system; Hebrew verbal system; Septuagint translators
