Chapter Summary

In the Masoretic Text (MT) of Ezekiel close to thirty hapax legomena occur. This chapter compares the treatment of these words in the LXX and the Peshitta. One must first of all take the Vorlagen of the versions in consideration, as in some instances the base text may differ. In 1:14, for example, the original LXX does not have the verse, while the later recensions give a transcription of the Hebrew word in question as a place name. All the examples discussed in the chapter, classified in terms of similarities in the treatment of the examples. In his study Greenspahn has a chapter on the treatment of the hapax legomena in the versions.

Keywords: hapax legomena; Masoretic Text (MT); Peshitta; Septuagint (LXX)
