This is an updated public domain Old Testament module to conform to the LXX. This is
a work in progress by Nelson Mitrophan Chin. This Old Testament is being restored to
the LXX order according to H.B. Swete using the English translation
of Brenton (1851). All Hebrew Masoretic additions and variations are bracketted and noted as such. KJV chapter and verse numbering are preserved in parenthesis for easy referencing. |
All instances of the name Eliu is replaced with the more familiar Greek 'Elias' also known as Elijah. Suffer is replaced by give
in Ps 15(16):10 to preserve the Greek verb dwseiv. For the Greek term 'sitw',
corn is used instead of oil in Hosea 7:14.
The Song of the Three Holy Children and the Prayer of
Azariah has been restored back to the LXX order of Daniel 3:24-90,
inserted between verses 23 and 24 of the King James Version. Dn
3:24-30; 4:1-3 KJV are renumbered to 3:91-101. Daniel 4:4-37 KJV to Dn
4:1-33. The History of Susanna and the History of the Destruction of
Bel and the Dragon, cut off from the end of Daniel in the KJV, has
been restored back to the LXX order of Daniel as chapters 13 and
The Greek Additions to Esther is restored to the LXX order with
additions from Brenton's:
Es 11:2-:6 KJV (Add. A) is prepended to Es 1, as Es 1:1-17.
Es 1:1-22 KJV as Es 1:18-39.
Es 13:1-7 KJV (Add. B) is inserted between Es 3:13 and 3:14 KJV,
and renumbered as Es 3:14-20.
Es 3:14-15 KJV is renumbered as Es 3:21-22.
Es 13:8-14:19 KJV (Add. C, D) is appended to Es 4 as Es 4:18-47.
Es 15:1-16 KJV (Add. E) is prepended to Es 5 as Es 5:1-10 using
Brenton's text and verse division, and replaces Es 5:1-2 KJV.
Es 5:3-14 KJV is renumbered as Es 5:11-22.
Es 16:1-24 KJV (Add. E) is inserted between Es 8: and Es 8:13 KJV, as Es 8:13-36.
Es 8:13-17 KJV as Es 8:37-41.
Es 10:4-11:1 KJV (Add. F) is appended to Es 10 as Es 10:4-14.
rearranged according to the LXX. Any vesperal readings taken from
Jeremiah or Proverbs may be off-aligned in the Menologion, as it is hard-coded to
the KJV chapter and verse ordering.
