The ‘Septuagint’ is the primary Greek translation of the Old Testament, which according to tradition was commissioned by Ptolemy II for inclusion in the Library of Alexandria. Legend tells there were seventy-two translators, six from each of the twelve tribes of Israel, who worked independently to translate the original Hebrew text. The ‘Septuagint’ is a cornerstone of Western theology and remains an immensely popular choice of study for Christian scholars across the world.

Concerned about the Typos 🙏
I reviewed the page offered online, before purchase, in comparison of the Brenton transcript, IE original Brenton hardback copy 1851, printing May, 2011, which seemed accurate at the time. But since “just” reading a portion of the Psalms, I have found too MANY typos, such as “new” instead of “Knew,” amongst others, some not so obvious,leading to research and comparison to the written, which is disappointing.
I was looking for a ACCURATE digital copy of the original Brenton translation, which I use ALL the time...interested in “every word” that was “Said,” just as it was said!
Price is not the issue, accuracy is, I am still looking.
