Num 16:36-50 and Rahlfs

Post by Mitch Tulloch » December 29th, 2018, 3:46 pm

I'm curious, does anyone know why Num 16:36-50 is missing from Rahlfs Septuagint? The verses are clearly present in the Numbers volume of the Gottingen critical edition as attested by NETS. Unfortunately I don't have access to the Gottingen series, so could someone who has the Gottingen e-volume for Numbers (if there is one) possibly provide me with the Greek of the missing verses via copy/paste here? Unless of course that would violate copyright :-)

Thanks!

Num 16:36-50 is 17:1-15 in the Hebrew Bible.
Wevers wrote:16:36 Καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν 37 κιὰ πρὸς Ἐλεαζὰρ τὸν υἱὸν Ἀαρὼν τὸν ἱερέα Ἀνέλεσθε τὰ πυρεῖα τὰ χαλκᾶ ἐκ μέσου τῶν κατακεκαυμένων καὶ τὸ πῦρ τὸ ἀλλότριον τοῦτο σπεῖρον ἐκεῖ, ὅτι ἡγίασαν (3) τὰ πυρεῖα τῶν ἁμαρτωλῶν τούτων ἐν ταῖς ψυχαῖς αὐτῶν. 38 καὶ ποίησον αὐτὰ λεπίδας ἐλατάς, περίθεμα τῷ θυσιαστηρίῳ, ὅτι προσηνέχθησαν ἔναντι κυρίου καὶ ἡγιάσθησαν, καὶ ἐγένοντο εἰς σημεῖον τοῖς υἱοῖς Ἰσραήλ. 39 καὶ ἔλαβεν Ἐλεαζὰρ υἱὸς Ἀαρὼν τοῦ ἱερέως τὰ πυρεῖα τὰ χαλκᾶ, ὅσα προσήνεγκαν οἱ κατακεκαυμένοι, καὶ προσέθηκαν αὐτὰ περίθεμα τῷ θυσιαστηρίῳ, 40 μνημόσυνον τοῖς υἱοῖς Ἰσραήλ, ὅπως ἂν μὴ προσέλθῃ μηθεὶς ἀλλογενής, ὃς οὐκ ἔστιν ἐκ τοῦ σπέρματος Ἀαρών, ἐπιθεῖναι θυμίαμα ἔναντι κυρίου, καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ὥσπερ Κόρε καὶ ἡ ἐπισύστασις αὐτοῦ, καθὰ ἐλάλησεν κύριος ἐν χειρὶ Μωυσῆ.
41 Καὶ ἐγόγγυσαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ἰσραήλ τῇ ἐπαύριον ἐπὶ Μωυσῆν καὶ Ἀαρὼν λέγοντες Ὑμεῖς ἀπεκτάνκατε τὸν λαὸν κυρίου. 42 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ ἐπισυστρέφεσθαι τὴν συναγωγὴν ἐπὶ Μωυσῆν καὶ Ἀαρών, καὶ ὥρμησαν ἐπὶ τὴν σκηνὴν τοῦ μαρτυρίου, καὶ τήνδε ἐκάλυψεν αὐτὴν ἡ νεφέλη, καὶ ὤφθη ἡ δόξα κυρίου. 43 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν Μωυσῆς καὶ Ἀαρὼν κατὰ πρόσωπον τῆς σκηνῆς τοῦ μαρτυρίου, 44 καὶ ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν καὶ Ἀαρὼν λέγων 45 Ἐκχωρήσατε ἐκ μέσου τῆς συναγωγῆς ταύτης, καὶ ἐξαναλώσω αὐτοὺς εἰς ἅπαξ. καὶ ἕπεσον ἐπὶ πρόσωπον αὐτῶν. 46 καὶ εἶπεν Μωυσῆς πρὸς Ἀαρών Λάβε τὸ πυρεῖον, καὶ ἐπίθες ἐπʼ αὐτὸ πῦρ ἀπὸ τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου, καὶ ἐπίβαλε ἐπʼ αὐτὸ θυμίαμα, καὶ ἀπένεγκε τὸ τάχος εἰς τὴν παρεμβολήν, καὶ ἐξίλασαι περὶ αὐτῶν· ἐξῆλθεν γὰρ ὀργὴ ἀπὸ προσώπου κυρίου, ἦρκται θραύειν τὸν λαόν. 47 καὶ ἔλαβεν Ἀαρών, καθάπερ ἐλάλησεν αὐτῷ Μωυσῆς, καὶ ἔδραμεν εἰς τὴν συναγωγήν· καὶ ἤδη ἐνῆρκτο ἡ θραῦσις ἐν τῷ λαῷ· καὶ ἐπέβαλεν τὸ θυμίαμα καὶ ἐξιλάσατο περὶ τοῦ λαοῦ· 48 καὶ ἔστη ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν τεθνηκότων καὶ τῶν ζώντων, καὶ ἐκόπασεν ἡ θραῦσις. 49 καὶ ἐγένοντο οἱ τεθνηκότες ἐν τῇ θραύσει τέσσαρες καὶ δέκα χιλιάδες καὶ ἑπτακόσιοι χωρὶς τῶν τεθνηκότων ἕνεκεν Κόρε. 50 καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν Ἀαρὼν πρὸς Μωυσῆν ἐπὶ τὴν θύραν τῆς σκηνῆς τοῦ μαρτυρίου, καὶ ἐκόπασεν ἡ θραῦσις.

Rahlfs follows the Hebrew Bible chapter and verse divisions here.

I always say, "We're not born knowing this stuff!" The only dumb questions are the ones that don't get asked.
