Brenton's English Septuagint Now Available

Brenton's English Septuagint Now Available

The Septuagint is an ancient Greek translation of the Hebrew Old Testament. It was a key factor in readability as Greek had become the common language by the time of Christ. At Blue Letter Bible, we have offered the Septuagint (LXX) for many years, which is regarded as the most credible Greek translation of the Hebrew Old Testament. Now, we are pleased to offer Brenton's English Septuagint (BES), an English translation of the Greek Septuagint.

Being able to offer an English rendering of the Septuagint is an amazing opportunity. In the preface of the BES, the writer makes a statement about the importance of the LXX:

"It is not only a translation of the Old Testament, but it is the Old Testament translated into the language of the New. Let it be remembered that the Gospel was in its aspect to the world a Hellenistic thing."

Why Provide Septuagint Resources?

At BLB, we recognize the usefulness of studying God's Word using the Greek Septuagint, especially in instances where a New Testament writer references the Greek Septuagint translation. Thus, the BES translation is just one more of the in-depth Septuagint tools that we offer. While checking out the BES, be sure to open up the Tools button, and take a look at the Septuagint tab with each Greek word and parsing.
