COOK, Johann. The relevance of exegetical commentaries on the Septuagint - LXX Proverbs 1:1-7 as an example. Old testam. essays [online]. 2010, vol.23, n.1, pp.28-43. ISSN 2312-3621.

This article demonstrates the significance of construing exegetical commentaries of the Septuagint. It takes LXX Proverbs 1:1-7 as a pilot study and employs a contextual method of interpretation. The translator in broad terms followed the structure of the Hebrew of this chapter. Variation was clearly his aim and thus he made significant adjustments on a syntactical level, as well as on a stylistic one. Rhyme and alliteration are applied and some passages are harmonised. He used word combinations and contrasts. The theological or exegetical intention of the translator is evident. The first seven verses act as an introduction to the book as a whole and more specifically to chapter 2. In the final analysis these verses are aimed at indicating what true biblical wisdom is.
