Chapter Summary

This chapter is a contribution to a Festschrift for Arie van der Kooij, whose 'lievelingsboek' is the book of Greek Isaiah, it would seem à propos to use Greek Isaiah as a bit of a launching pad to Greek Jeremiah, even though author interest is not in bisectioning per se but in Tov's variation thereon. Tov groups the fifty-one items intended to demonstrate that revision exists in Greek Jeremiah 29-52 and how it can manifest itself under the five headings: more precise renditions; corrections of erroneous renditions; stereotyped replacing non-stereotyped renditions; renditions reflecting the Heb in a more consistent way; and other changes. If the defining characteristic of Hebraizing revisions in the Septuagint is a relatively higher degree of translational consistency-i.e., the same Greek item for the same Hebrew-one may ask how that consistency can best be measured. The chapter suggests that consistency is viewed as either internal or external.

Keywords: erroneous renditions; Greek Isaiah; Greek Jeremiah; non-stereotyped renditions; translational consistency
