Hi,

newbie here, so plz take it easy on me.... Smiley

I am looking for a book that has the LXX in greek and an english translation in a side by side format. I've found

The Septuagint with Apocrypha: Greek and English
http://www.amazon.com/Septuagint-Apocrypha-Greek-English/dp/0913573442/ref=pd_bxgy_b_img_a

and was curious what you guys would recommend. Is there anything better out there?

Also, would anyone know of a online (pdf preferrably) version of this or similar book?

Thanks.

This is an online version using Breton's LXX vs Masoretic
http://ecmarsh.com/lxx-kjv/

And this one will lead you to a program that does the same thing (opens files in PDF and includes the PDF to look at if you don't want to use the program)... free BTW, about fourth one down.

Wow the LXX is very different from the Oxford RSV I have, I really enjoy reading the Septuagint alot more.

Father, Bless.
Are you aware of how soon a complete OT translation will be made by the EOB team? I'm not sure how updated that list they have regarding what contributors are doing to each book.

I am wary of it now, since they are translating Epicopate as overseers in the E/GOB. :-(

WT*!

I understand the reason for translating presbyteros as 'presbyter,' but there is no reason to use overseer.  It's misleading in the extreme.

The argument Fr. Laurent makes is that episkopos and presbyteros were interchangeable then. Doesn't seem like a good explanation to me though. Weren't the NT "overseers" much more like modern bishops than presbyters?

They were exactly like modern bishops, the episcopate being one.  The presbyters were Chorbishops.

I have it on good authority that Mr Papoutsis does not take kindly to criticism of his work.

The EOB is  Fr. Laurent Cleenewerck's project though I believe there are other collaborators.

But yeah, I know exactly what you're talking about.

He definitely did not at first, but in his return to Monachos, he appears to have taken a much more humble approach, accepting criticism.
