Out of all the books in the Old Testament, the New Testament writers cited Psalms and Isaiah most often. Of notable importance in Isaiah are verses 7:14, 40:3-5, and 52:13-53:12—important in that the New Testament authors believed these verses were prophetic of the coming Messiah. In the first volume of The Book of Isaiah according to the Septuagint, Richard R. Ottley provides the English translations of Isaiah from the Greek and Hebrew side-by-side for easy comparison:
In the second volume of The Book of Isaiah according to the Septuagint, Ottley provides the entire Greek text of the Book of Isaiah from the Codex Alexandrinus, one of the earliest and most complete manuscripts of the Greek Bible. Following the Greek text are over 300 pages of notes on the text of Isaiah.
The third volume in the Works of Richard R. Ottley (3 vols.) is the Handbook to the Septuagint, Ottley's thorough history of the Septuagint. Chapters cover the different versions and their manuscripts, survey the contents and organization of the books, discuss their relationship to the Hebrew Bible, and demonstrate the importance of the LXX in later writings.
