The 2001 Translation AboutGreek Septuagint vs Hebrew Masoretic

There are many differences between the Hebrew Masoretic source texts and the Greek Septuagint source texts. Our Bible translation project is based on the belief that the Hebrew was deliberately corrupted sometime around the late 1st and early 2nd centuries. This page will list all of the differences between the two main texts.

We do not believe that the Greek Septuagint is perfect. Indeed, we’ve found many obvious errors. However, overall we consider the Greek to be more reliable. By comparing the two main families of Greek and Hebrew (with the occasional look at the Samaritan Pentateuch, Aramaic Targums, and ancient writers who quote the Bible), we can arrive at what is probably the original text.

This page is currently being prepared. It will eventually list all differences between the two source text families. Last updated June 2021.
