Chapter Summary

The comparison of the various textual witnesses to the 'Plagues Narrative' of Exod. 7:14-11:10 gave rise to a large number of variants of differing character. The goal of this chapter is to submit the said variants to a text-critical evaluation. It presents a study of the translation technique of the Septuagint of Exodus, bearing in mind the relevance of insight into translation character for the text-critical evaluation of the variants. The chapter then constitutes the actual evaluation of the most important, 'text-relevant' variants from Exod. 7:14-11:10. It concludes with a text-critical evaluation of the so-called major expansions or larger pluses in the 'Plagues Narrative'.

Keywords: Plagues Narrative; Septuagint; text-critical evaluation; text-relevant variants
