comment How do the traditions of the LXX and MT versions of Jeremiah relate?
@Mike Because they came to the prophet piecemeal. Look at the oracles - they have dates. Jeremiah wasn't written in one night. And likely Jeremiah didn't wait until he was finished with his career as a prophet before writing anything down (or having Baruch write anything down). His prophecies about the exile were timely and the people needed to hear them in his day. It would be the same thing with the Psalter. Who do you think organized that?

comment How do the traditions of the LXX and MT versions of Jeremiah relate?
Thanks for the information, Mike. I'm curious why you think that a better flow indicates that that text is older. Wouldn't it make sense for Jeremiah's prophecies to be first collected, and then later edited into a more coherent flow, with similar prophecies grouped together, etc... Don't editors generally improve a text?
