LXX Footnotes
Some portions of the Old Testament have small, consistent differences in verse numbering between the Hebrew and Greek Septuagint texts. For example, most of the Psalms are numbered by a difference of one. That is, Psalm 119 in the Hebrew/English is Psalm 118 in the Greek. In these cases, we display the Psalm 118 Greek with the Psalm 119 Hebrew/English so as to aid the user in his or her study. In Jeremiah, these differences are greater because of a variant Hebrew source text that may have been used by the original LXX translators.

We are indebted to the University of Pennsylvania Center for Computer Analysis of Texts (CCAT) and their Septuagint Greek Old Testament data files. These files have been of great assistance in the preparation of the Blue Letter Bible Septuagint text. They have been used, with permission, for non-commercial use only.
