About the Septuagint
© 2010, Robert E. Gentet

The Greek translation of the Old Testament Scriptures (the Septuagint or LXX) varied from the later Hebrew Masoretic text in certain ways. One significant difference involved the length of years since Creation given in the biblical genealogies, the Septuagint giving a longer and more accurate chronology. However, most of our English translations of the Old Testament rely upon the Hebrew Masoretic text that gives a shorter 6,000 year minimum figure for the years since Creation. For one explanation why this Greek version of the Old Testament is more reliable than the Masoretic in genealogy, see http://www.setterfield.org/Septuagint_History.html.
