The Septuagint (the ancient Greek translation of Jewish sacred writings) is of great importance in the history of both Judaism and Christianity. The first translation of the books of the Hebrew Bible (plus additions) into the common language of the ancient Mediterranean world made the Jewish scriptures accessible to many outside Judaism. Not only did the Septuagint become Holy Writ to Greek speaking Jews but it was also the Bible of the early Christian communities: the scripture they cited and the textual foundation of the early Christian movement. Translated from Hebrew (and Aramaic) originals in the two centuries before Jesus, the Septuagint provides important information about the history of the text of the Bible. For centuries, scholars have looked to the Septuagint for information about the nature of the text and of how passages and specific words were understood. For students of the Bible, the New Testament in particular, the study of the Septuagint's influence is a vital part of the history of interpretation. But until now, the Septuagint has not been available to English readers in a modern and accurate translation. The New English Translation of the Septuagint fills this gap.

English summary: At least since the humanist period Christian exegetes have always returned to the Greek version of the Septuagint Bible whenever the Hebrew version proved itself to be either challenging or even cryptic. Over the past 30 years, text-critical research of the bible has increasingly avoided this practice. Instead the text of the Septuagint is now viewed in its broad diversity and evolution as a witness to the textual history of the Old Testament deserving of separate examination. The articles by Eberhard Bons collected in this volume address this issue. Using selected examples, especially from the Psalms and the books of the prophets, it is shown that translators on the one hand tried to preserve the meaning of the Hebrew original, while on the other setting new priorities. German description: Spatestens seit der Zeit des Humanismus griffen christliche Bibelausleger immer wieder auf den griechischen Bibeltext der Septuaginta zuruck, wenn der hebraische sich als schwierig oder gar ratselhaft erwies. In den letzten 30 Jahren ist die textkritische Forschung am Bibeltext mehr und mehr von diesem Verfahren abgeruckt. Der Text der Septuaginta wird vielmehr in seiner ganzen Vielfalt und Entwicklung als ein Zeuge der Textgeschichte des Alten Testaments angesehen, der eine eigene Betrachtung verdient. Die im vorliegenden Band gesammelten Artikel von Eberhard Bons greifen diese Fragestellung auf. Anhand ausgewahlter Beispiele vor allem aus den Psalmen sowie den Prophetenbuchern wird herausgearbeitet, dass die Ubersetzer den Sinn ihrer hebraischen Ausgangstexte einerseits zu bewahren versuchten, andererseits aber auch neue inhaltliche Akzente setzten.

In this rendering, the Psalms become once again what they were for Christian believers from the very beginning: the hymnal of the Church. They remain, certainly, the songs of Israel: from its cries of lamentation to its shouts of exultation. But for the Christian reader, they become as well hymns of petition and praise that express both the joy and the longing of those who live 'in Christ' . . . At the same time their very language can convey to us the assurance that, as he has throughout the millennia, God hears our prayer and responds to it with boundless mercy, love, and compassion. --from the Preface by Fr. John Breck Professor Sheehan's brief introductory exposition of the Davidic roots of Psalms and the poetics of chiasmus guides us in understanding how the ruining oppositions of actual experience are held in Psalms within the musical disciplines of lyric art: held, until God Himself can be seen in the ruins: seen, and felt, and overwhelmingly and gratefully loved. The psalmist's world doesn't change as he turns his experience toward God. What changes is he himself. How he changes is toward acquiring the very mind of Christ, to which each of us is called.
