Is it possible the LXX translators read memshelet as memshalot and took that as a plural form?
That is correct.

Re: Koine NT in UNCIAL script ONLINE

Like Jonathan, I'm not entirely sure if this what you're asking, but you might try Alan Bunning's Center for New Testament Restoration at https://greekcntr.org/collation/index.htm

Re: Declension of foreign names --- Judith 2:24

Judith 2:24 mentions a brook called Abrona: "ἐπὶ τοῦ χειμάρρου Αβρωνα". As I understand it Abrona is here in the genitive, but not inflected (asa foreign name). Most translators and commentators nevertheless calls the brook Abron, and sometimes one sees Abronas. Neither of these, as far as I could ...

Re: 2 Esdras 4

That part is translated from Latin; it didn't survive in Greek or Hebrew.

Re: Christian 'corruption' of Psalms 14/53 to match Romans 3:10-18

Right. That's the scholarly consensus. Harmonization happened in Psalm 13[14]... Apparently I'm a little behind the times regarding "the scholarly consensus" on this issue. This article reflects more recent research: Karrer, Martin, and Ulrich Schmid. “Old Testament Quotations in the New Testament ...

Re: Christian 'corruption' of Psalms 14/53 to match Romans 3:10-18

I think one of the points in the video was that Paul was doing precisely this; and that this patchwork quote was then interpolated into the Psalms in codices S and B. So ultimately, you agree with this thesis vis-àvis Psalm 13[14}, but you don't think this is evidence that such harmonization happen...

Re: Christian 'corruption' of Psalms 14/53 to match Romans 3:10-18

Also, Ἰσραήλ seems to be represented by 2 distinct nominem sacra - ΙΣΛ (4 lines from the end) and ΙΗΛ (at the end). Is that correct? Or am I misreading? Right. The nomen sacrum for Israel is not entirely consistent. It seems easy to explain why they would be omitted in A - either in deference to th...

Re: Christian 'corruption' of Psalms 14/53 to match Romans 3:10-18

I guess my remaining question, which I'm still researching, is why the Rahlfs-Hanhard Septuagint encloses the section in question (matching Romans 3) in square brackets and why the NETS felt the need to omit it completely, considering its wide textual support in the key LXX mss. Is this done simply...

Re: Christian 'corruption' of Psalms 14/53 to match Romans 3:10-18

Note that, despite having the standard reading of "οὐκ ἔστιν ἕως ἑνός" in Psalm 14, Sinaiticus has the variant reading - "οὐκ ἔστιν ἕως αἰνός " for some reason (presumably just a 'typo'). We consider αι for ε to be not a variant but an alternate (phonetic) spelling. The two sounded the same. The sa...

Re: Christian 'corruption' of Psalms 14/53 to match Romans 3:10-18

I can't for the life of me seem to find these Psalms in this translation. 11QP^c is listed under "CAVE 11 Biblical manuscripts" (pg. 517) under the bullet listing 11Q7, with reference to some other books. It seems like Martinez may have included them in a separate volume 'Texts from Cave 11'. So I ...
