Notes on the Greek Text of Deuteronomy
John William Wevers
Out of Print
Wevers has spent most of his adult life studying the Septuagint, the last thirty years being devoted to the Pentateuch. The author considers the Greek text to be the first commentary on the Pentateuch ever written (in the third century B.C.E.) and not merely a collection for emendations of the Hebrew text.
