If you would like to see a copy of the Septuagint (LXX) in both Greek and English, it can be found on the net at http://www.ccel.org/php/disp.php?authorID=brenton&bookID=lxx&page=i&view=png According to most Biblical Scholars, the Septuagint is the Greek version of the Bible which was written a few hundred years before Christ and was in WIDE circulation even in Judea during the time of Jesus. Greek was used as an international language by the Roman Empire and therefore it was either a high order second language or primary language even in Palestine during this time. (This is the primary reason the N.T. was written mostly in Greek with the exception of Matthew and possibly an Epistle or two written in Aramaic--not Arabic.) Because of the comparisons between many New Testament writers, and some of the quotations from Jesus, it is clear that this book was obviously the standard Bible of the time and era. By the way, many other old documents -- not necessarily Biblical, but most related in one way or another to religion and Christianity are posted at www.ccel.org. If you are a researcher, this is an invaluable site for ancient materials. God Bless!
