Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the relation between the two Greek texts of Daniel and the Greek translation of Baruch. It shows that some agreements exist between Baruch and Daniel-Th (differing from Daniel-LXX), but most of them have no bearing upon the nature of the relationship between Baruch and Th-Daniel and are, in a way, coincidental. In order to clarify the relationship between the translations of Baruch, Daniel-LXX and Daniel-Th, their renderings of the same Hebrew word are classified in an analysis. Daniel-LXX presents a very free translation and therefore it causes no surprise that its renderings are very rare or unparalleled elsewhere in Greek Scripture. The renderings indicate no relationship of dependence between Baruch and either Daniel-Th or Daniel-LXX. Literal renderings probably constitute the key for the understanding of the relatively numerous agreements between Baruch and Daniel-Th.

Keywords: Baruch's Greek translation; Daniel's Greek texts; Greek versions; Hebrew word; literal renderings
