Chapter Summary

Arie van der Kooij has made a decisive contribution towards the study of the Septuagint. This applies especially to the Book of Isaiah, although he has dealt with other translated units from this corpus as well. In order to determine what the Septuagint of Isaiah has in store in the oracle of Tyre, he firstly approaches the Hebrew (Masoretic) text of this chapter as an individual text an sich. The chapter compares some aspects of the Septuagint of Isaiah and Proverbs only. In order to make an appropriate comparison the chapter addresses correspondences as well as differences. The method author follow is a comparative one and he takes seriously the concepts of text and context. Whereas the Old Greek text of Isaiah has been determined by Ziegler, the Handausgabe of Rahlfs are used as textual basis as far as the Septuagint version of Proverbs is concerned.
