comment Why doesn’t the Septuagint include the characterization of Isaac as Abraham’s “only son”?
Also noteworthy are Aquinas' and Symmachus' translations, found here (p. 37).

comment Does the past tense in the suffering servant song (Isaiah 53) refer to Jesus?
@BruceJames: It's a general statement. After all, Sefer Mikhlol is a grammar, as you know, not a commentary on any particular book of the Tanakh.

comment Why does the Greek Septuagint of Genesis 34:3 refer to Dinah as a virgin?
@AdithiaKusno: No, not really, as an equivalent phenomenon as vav-consecutives does not exist in Koine Greek, or any other language that I know of, for that matter.

comment Why is “bloods,” translated as “blood,” in Genesis 4:10?
As Susan noted. Such Semiticisms were common, even being carried over into Greek (cp. αἱμάτων in John 1:13).

comment Does Romans 9:5 assert the deity of Christ?
This is an inaccurate assessment of the LXX. The LXX has: (68:18 KJV) ἀνέβης εἰς ὕψος ᾐχμαλώτευσας αἰχμαλωσίαν ἔλαβες δόματα ἐν ἀνθρώπῳ καὶ γὰρ ἀπειθοῦντες τοῦ κατασκηνῶσαι κύριος ὁ θεὸς εὐλογητός (68:19 KJV) εὐλογητὸς κύριος ἡμέραν καθ᾽ ἡμέραν κατευοδώσει ἡμῖν ὁ θεὸς τῶν σωτηρίων ἡμῶν διάψαλμα. Not only is the LXX not an exact translation of the Hebrew (because the Greek word εὐλογητὸς occurs twice, while the Hebrew word בָּרוּךְ only occurs once), but εὐλογητὸς actually occurs before κύριος like it does everywhere else in the LXX, contra its position in Rom. 9:5 (after θεὸς).

comment Colossians 2:16 speaks of holy days, festivals or weekly sabbaths?
Pagan new moons? You do realize that the Jews observed Rosh Chodesh, i.e., the beginning of the month marked by the new moon, right?
