Chapter Summary

This study is an exercise in method involving the writing of a commentary on three different chapters in the LXX. In Proverbs 1, most of the differences between the LXX and MT reflect the translator's exegesis. The author uses three chapters, Proverbs 1, Jeremiah 27, and 1 Samuel 1, to compare the different types of information derived from the LXX. He not only comments on inner-Septuagintal issues but also compares the LXX text with other textual traditions (MT, Qumran and Josephus). The chapters chosen from the Hebrew Bible testify to a complicated textual history. The author shows the relevance of Septuagint research for the study of the Hebrew Scriptures, not only for textual criticism but also for literary criticism. Differences between the LXX and the MT reflect either differences in the Vorlage or in the translator's exegesis.

Keywords: Hebrew Bible; Josephus tradition; LXX; MT; Qumran texts; Septuagint research; Vorlage
