Translation notes included the LXX

I'm beginning my journey into the LXX.

Is there a resource for the LXX which is provides translation notes. Not so much the textual criticism (like Metzgers notes), but more translational issues?

Re: How to progress to patristics?

I don't know why I didn't think of that, but on a practical level, it's been true for me that if I know all the vocabulary the grammar starts to seem not difficult at all! I'll start with some Anki word lists preceding each chapter.

Thanks for the feedback and encouragement!

Re: They disciplined _us_ ?? (Heb 12:10)

Just to be perfectly pedantic, not elision (which is the omission of a final letter or syllable), but elipsis is the correct term. Does this mean an "us" is considered to be ellided? NASB doesn't indicate so with its special method of capitalising to indicate "added" text: Thanks Barry, my lecturer...

Re: They disciplined _us_ ?? (Heb 12:10)

Thanks, that is what I suspected, but I wasn't entirely sure I wasn't simply missing something.

I guess this means NASB doesn't use its uppercase convention when they consider the word the evidence for that word is strong enough in the context that it doesn't need the uppercase.

Re: Consider _him_ (Heb 12:3)

τὸν... ὑπομεμενηκότα (that is, ὁ ὑπομεμενηκώς) is functioning substantively. It means "the one who had endured" or "he who had endured." Thus, the personal pronoun is contained in the substantive use of the participle. "Consider the one who...." Oh, of course, thanks! While being aware of this usag...

Consider _him_ (Heb 12:3)

I have a feeling this might be a stupid question, but I am stuck none the less, so I am going to ask. :D I am working through trying to untangle the greek of Hebrews. With regards to this phrase: ἀναλογίσασθε γὰρ °τὸν τοιαύτην ὑπομεμενηκότα ὑπὸ τῶν ἁμαρτωλῶν εἰς ⸀ἑαυτὸν ἀντιλογίαν, Most translations...

Re: Τίνι γὰρ εἶπέν ποτε τῶν ἀγγέλων (Heb 1:5)

Thanks guys! Your replies are really useful. I understand genitive is not simply a matter of inserting "of". I just did not understand in this case _why_ . Without the benefit of the English I would have had no idea why the genitive clause connected to a different part of the sentence. It seems that...

Τίνι γὰρ εἶπέν ποτε τῶν ἀγγέλων (Heb 1:5)

When I read this: Τίνι γὰρ εἶπέν ποτε τῶν ἀγγέλων To me, it reads as: For to whom has he ever said, (speaking) of angels: It seems like every major new testament translation reads it like this: Τίνι γὰρ εἶπέν ποτε ↳ τῶν ἀγγέλων To which of the angels, did he ever say: It seems I have a problem disti...
