Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the differences between MT and variants reconstructed from the LXX. These reconstructed variants are as important as Hebrew variants, as long as they are based on reliable reconstructions. The chapter also focuses on interchanges of single letters or combinations of two letters, mainly because of their similar shape. The most fertile ground for the study of interchangeable letters both in Hebrew sources and between the Hebrew and Greek sources is the realm of proper nouns, since in this area very few content considerations are involved. Information on interchanges of letters between the MT and LXX, involving proper and common nouns is provided below, based on subjective reconstruction. The statistics indicate differences in the frequency of interchanges of consonants.

Keywords: consonants; Hebrew variants; letter interchanges; masoretic Text; MT; proper nouns; septuagint
