The Septuagint (LXX) is the Greek translation of the Hebrew Scriptures, which according to tradition was done by seventy Jewish scholars (hence the name) sometime in the 3rd century BC. It is the Bible which the Greek-speaking world read during the time of the apostles, to which Paul would have referred in his dealings with his churches. The Rahlfs edition is the most modern critical edition of this text. The morphology gives the user the ability to draw parsing and glossary information directly from the text, which is especially important because the Greek of the LXX is significantly different from that of the NT.

Alfred Rahlfs (1865–1935) followed in the footsteps of his teacher, Paul de Lagarde, making the Septuagint his central academic focus throughout his career. He was responsible for initiating the Göttingen Septuagint (67 vols.) and produced the volume on the Psalms and Odes for that edition.
