Chapter Summary

This chapter analyses a particular feature of translating the Hebrew preposition ל in the LXX Genesis and Exodus, namely the renderings of the preposition ל in predicate expressions with the following meanings: 'transition into a new role or state', 'goal, result', 'becoming something' and the like. The focus here is the denotation of various kinds of 'purpose', that is, ל is employed. The chapter compares examples with the cases in Genesis and Exodus by first dividing the material into חח ל cases and cases with other verbs. It starts with renderings that take prepositions then subsequently nominative, accusative, and other renderings. ל of transition and purpose is not translated by only one equivalent in Greek in Septuagint Genesis or Exodus, and cases that are similar in Hebrew undergo various renderings in the LXX.

Keywords: Exodus; Hebrew preposition ל; LXX Genesis; Septuagint Genesis
