Chapter Summary

The LXX of Jeremiah probably reflects an early edition of the Hebrew book, to be called ed. I, differing recensionally from the later edition of MT, to be called ed. II. This chapter is based upon the assumption that the short LXX text of Jeremiah reflects a short Hebrew text. It presents a reconstruction of the Hebrew Vorlage of chapter 27, annotated with notes relating to the character and origin of the additions of ed. II. The reconstruction of the Hebrew Vorlage of Jeremiah 27 is as problematic as any other reconstruction, but it enables a reasonable presentation of the quantitative differences between the two editions of Jeremiah. The reconstructed Vorlage of the LXX of Jeremiah 27 (34) is presented on the first lines, and the expanded edition of MT on the second lines.
