Chapter Summary

This chapter lists the sequences between two types of texts in the Greek books of Samuel and Kings: the Alexandrian text, represented by the Codex Vaticanus, and the Antiochene text, also called the Lucianic. The texts disagree on translation equivalencies and on the order of chapters and verses. Their discrepancies with the Masoretic text are not discussed here. The original text of the Septuagint lies far from the manuscripts that have survived. The Hebrew text, before having been fixed by the Masoretes, had suffered several revisions. The Greek text bears significant witness to the pluralism of the pre-Masoretic Hebrew text. It is quite a frequent practice of the Antiochene text to develop the text at the end of the verses. The chapter also points out some particular examples that are representative of the diverse types of contact between texts or manuscripts.

Keywords: Alexandrian text; Antiochene Texts; Codex Vaticanus; Lucianic text; Masoretic text; Septuagint text
