Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author shows how the five principles of The Society of Biblical Literature Commentary on the Septuagint (SBLCS) are put into practice, with Psalm 8 as a sample case. The main principle, to which the other four are subordinate, is that the commentary makes a distinction between the text as produced and the text as received, i.e., the meaning of the original translation and the understanding of the later Greek reader. The four principles, each from a slight different perspective, can be seen to feed into the central notion expressed here, namely, that the commentary makes a distinction between the text as produced, on the one hand, and the text as received, on the other, and that the commentary aims to focus on the former in distinction from the latter, even though the latter is not precluded from playing a role in the explication of the former.
