The Septuagint Online

One of the more fascinating collection of texts that exist is the Septuagint. This is the Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible created at some point in the 3rd century BCE. Among many thing it informs us how the ancients interpreted biblical passages. My favorite is Genesis 6:

HB: Gen 6:4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days…

LXX: Gen 6:5 Now the giants were upon the earth in those days…

In an event, you can now have access to the New English Translation online (NETS)
