Septuagint



[Return to Index]


Description:
This fragment of Job 42:11-12 from the Septuagint (Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible) manuscript uses a middle Hebrew font for the Tetragrammaton (YHVH/Yahweh, the name of God - located in black box). All later copies of the Septuagint replaced this Hebrew name with the Greek word Kyrios meaning "lord". Hebrew copies of the Hebrew Bible written with the late Hebrew script often used the middle Hebrew script for the name of God in order to preserve the original appearance of the name. The use of the middle Hebrew script in this fragment suggests a strict Jewish origin of this Septuagint.
