Book Overview

A fresh translation of the Septuagint.

The Lexham English Septuagint (LES) is a new translation of the Septuagint, the Greek version of the Old Testament writings used during New Testament times and in the early church. Beautifully typeset in a comfortable, single-column format, the LES provides a literal, readable, and transparent English edition of the Septuagint for modern readers. Retaining the familiar forms of personal names and places, the LES gives readers the ability to read it alongside their favored English Bible. Translated directly from Swete's edition of the Septuagint, the LES maintains the meaning of the original text, making the Septuagint accessible to readers today.

   A little disappointed
You can come and relax, for there are still days to go before the completion, and you can rise to your share. There are some errors in the text. There are some books that are missing fragments in this version, which is literally translated from an ancient Septuagint. The example shows that Enoch skips from chapter 32 to chapter 89. It would have been nice to know before the purchase that there were fragments missing. So buyer, pay attention. The language is easy to read. I will be researching more to find a more robust Septuagint, one that can supplement missing passages. If you' re interested in the authenticity of the ancient Septuagint, then this version is for you.
   Awesome must have.
It was Awesome! I got this item from Sparkle Books. The price was very favorable. It was brand new and undamaged. The highlight didn't bleed, and the fonts is ok for me. There are enough pages to write notes on. If the Septuagint was good enough for Jesus, then it's good enough for me.
   This is a great translation
I am very happy to recommend this book. The binding is SEWN and it has an excellent CLOTH cover. The translation is great! I thought the translation was good. I found the NETS version to be boring, wooden, useless, and lifeless. Hated it, that's what I did. I read a little of the Septuagint in the Orthodox Study Bible, but I didn't like the translation. I was almost ready to say that the modern English version was not worth reading. I can only say that it is amazing. It's a pleasure to read. I don't have enough of it. It's worth every single penny. I can't help but praise it.
   Good translation
The translation of the septuagint is better than I thought. It's nice to have a comparison, but the Lexham reads well. It would have been nice to have a more complete Enoch, but it would have needed a different source. Overall, this is a good read and would be nice to have more notes. Refer to the introduction for the translation philosophy. The cover and quality binding are beautiful. The paper is thin, so it's a nice usable size, and the print size is large for easy reading.
   The Most Complete Orthodox Old testament!
I can finally read the most complete canon from this LXX. The way the words are written on the page makes it so pleasant to read. There are 58 books, and 54 of them are not included. You will have 81 books with the new testament.
