I`d like to read the Septuagint and I am curious to know which books of
Septuagint are good translations. I've heard that there were many (~70)
translators some were good translators and some were beginning students.
I've heard that the translators who did the Torah did a great job but
ones who did Isaiah were inept.

I'm not interested in which books may have more scribal errors but the
quality of the original translations. I'd like get your impressions for
each of the Old Covenant books - or perhaps a web site for further

In Messiah,
David Wilens
