The Lexham Greek-English Interlinear Septuagint, Alternate Texts

Randall Tan, David A. deSilva

| Lexham Press | 2010

Details

The Septuagint (LXX), a translation of the Hebrew Bible into Greek, is a valuable complement to the study of the Hebrew Bible. Providing an early witness to the text of the Hebrew Bible, the LXX can also be particularly helpful with understanding difficult Hebrew texts, and is the basis of many of the Old Testament quotations found in the New Testament.

Standard interlinears typically provide a translation gloss of a particular word. The Lexham Greek-English Interlinear Septuagint, however, takes advantage of its digital environment to offer multiple layers of English glosses that reflect the complexity of the Greek language structure. The Logos version offers two levels of interlinear translation. The first is the lexical value, which is a gloss of the lexical or dictionary form of the word. The second is 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 does this word mean?" The second gloss answers the question, "What does this word mean here?"
