Sample text

1. Such points of view might well appear in how the translator deals with divine names. As is well known, Kupios ('Lord') is used as a substitute for the tetragrammaton throughout the LXX. But it can also serve to render a human master. 17 where God is referred to as pNi"! T ('Yahweh the lord') he substitutes the Lord your God—Kup'iou TOU GEOU aou. In fact, only where there seems to be some good reason for distinguishing between the names miT and DTT^K is he careful in his choice. In other words, one usually cannot use these renderings for text-critical purposes at all.

The name Shiphra occurs only here in the Old Testament and the accent distinction, though admittedly arbitrary is useful. In v. 16 Pharaoh gives his brutish instructions to the two midwives. Precisely what the origin is of the figurative Hebrew phrase 'you shall see them on the double stones' is not clear, but the translator certainly understood what it meant by his 'and they should be at the point of giving birth'. Note that the preposition irpos is here used classically with the dative in the sense of 'near to'.

V. 7) the LXX puts God at the center; the Hebrew has the neutral promise 'and the frogs shall turn away from you', but the Greek interprets the verb by a future passive 'shall be removed'. This presupposes a divine agent, and emphasizes the 'sign' character of the plagues' being brought to an end. 19 Jethro gives Moses good advice which he ends with a precative: 'May God be with you'. But the Greek makes this a positive promise: 'God will be with you'. 5. Reference has already been made to God's angel.
