Abstract Scholars have noted the various strategies used in Greek Exodus to ensure conformity in the narrative with Yahweh’s warning (Exod 33:20) “No one shall see me and live.” Close examination of five “theophanies,” the rendering of the Hebrew verb יעד when Yahweh is subject, and the rendering of the Hebrew expression “see the face of Yahweh” indicates that the translator carefully communicated in the target text compliance of Moses and others with the principle expressed in Exod 33:20. In some cases the translator may be following a different Hebrew Vorlage, but in most cases the text suggests the translator shapes the Greek text to conform with the Exod 33:20 axiom. That this tendency occurs in at least three different types of situations within Greek Exodus indicates that the translator is both interpres and expositor.
