Takamitsu Muraoka has compiled a user-friendly Hebrew/Aramaic index to the Septuagint. He critically examines all of the Hebrew-Greek and Aramaic-Greek equivalences assigned by the Hatch-Redpath Concordance to the Septuagint, particularly focusing on lexicographical and text-critical advancements in the study of both the Septuagint and the Hebrew Bible in the last century. Whereas the Hatch-Redpath Hebrew Index is restricted to a list of page/column references, Muraoka’s Hebrew/Aramaic Index to the Septuagint offers a complete listing of the Greek equivalents for every Hebrew and Aramaic term in the Hebrew Bible, Sirach, and I Esdras. In each entry, Hebrew words are written first, then proceeded by the Greek words which are also keyed to the Hatch-Redpath Concordance.
