The Septuagint (LXX), the Greek translation of the Old Testament, is an invaluable resource for study of the Hebrew Bible and early Christian literature. Providing an early witness to the text of the Old Testament, the LXX can be particularly helpful in understanding difficult Hebrew texts. And as the Bible of the early Church, it is the basis of many Old Testament quotations found in the New Testament. In addition to the Greek translations of the Hebrew canon, the LXX also includes important deutero-canonical writings such as the Maccabees, Sirach and additions to Esther and Daniel, among others.

The Lexham Greek-English Interlinear Septuagint: H. B. Swete Edition takes advantage of its digital environment to offer multiple layers of linguistic information that reflect the complexity of Greek. Along with the morphology and lemma levels, this new edition offers two levels of interlinear translation: the lexical value, which is a concise definition as it would be found in a lexicon; and the English literal translation, a contextually sensitive gloss of the inflected form of the word. The difference in these glosses is subtle, but powerful. The first gloss answers the question, “What is the typical meaning of this word?” The second gloss answers the question, “What does the Greek mean in this context?”

Unlike other Greek Septuagints, this special H. B. Swete version contains some of the oldest available manuscripts, including Codexes Vaticanus, Sinaiticus, Alexandrinus, and includes portions of the Odes, Psalms of Solomon, and Enoch.

    Nothing wrong with this product. I understand a lot of hard work goes into this stuff and I respect the work that was put into it. With that said, I am however a little confused. Unlike the Hebrew interlinear tool that comes with the Starter package and includes the Strong's Hebrew numbers (as well as the morphology), the Lexham Greek-English Interlinear Septuagint has a completely different set up. For instance, the Strong's Greek numbers are not included or applied to this product and the organization of the interlinear interface is different (includint the "inline interlinear" option, but not the regular "interlinear" tool which appears at the bottom like the "interlinear" tool for the other Bibles i.e. NASB, ESV, NIV etc.). I learned this the hard way. There is another product called: "The Old Testament in Greek according to the Septuagint | LXX Swete." However even this product leaves out the Strong's Greek numbers, instead the Strong's Hebrew numbers are applied to the Septuagint's Greek words (the product also does not include a literal english translation, which makes it harder to follow the Strong's Hebrew numbers attached). This was extremely confusing to me and although I now have the upgraded Bronze package which includes both programs, I still do not have immediate access to the Strong's Greek numbers which was the original reason I upgraded my package. Most of the people I talked to over the phone were sweet but did not understand what I was asking for. Make sure you read carefully what is included before you purchase the product, even then it can be a little misleading.
