Abstract This article argues that in LXX-Jer 29, the rendering ἐν µέσῳ αὐτῆς “in her midst” suggests that the Greek translator had before him a true variant which read בצדה rather than בצרה, which the MT reads. The variant בצדה is supported by several other Greek versions. Furthermore, dalet-resh interchange is a common phenomenon exhibited by LXX-Jer 29 and the parallel Hebrew texts.
