I think that if you could get a copy of the big Liddell (Liddell-Scott-Jones
lexicon) and Smyth's <i>Greek Grammar</i> you would probably have what
you need to read the Septuagint.&nbsp; Possibly you could do it with the
Liddell-Scott <i>Intermediate Greek Lexicon </i>(the "middle Liddell")&nbsp;
although I'm not sure of this.&nbsp; I doubt that a beginning NT Greek
grammar would tell you everything you need to know about syntax to read
the LXX.
<p>When I was a senior in seminary, I read 2 Maccabees and Joseph &amp;
Aseneth and Lucius the Ass in Greek but it surely required the big Liddell
to do this.
<p>If you have the big Liddell and Smyth then that's as good as it gets
for classical Greek.
