LITERARY PERSPECTIVES IN THE SEPTUAGINT OF PROVERBS

Johann Cook

Abstract


This contribution demonstrates that the person(s) responsible for the Septuagint of
Proverbs employed literary perspectives on different levels. He took the broader
picture of the whole of the book into consideration in his rendering of it. Hence the
statement in Proverbs 1 verse 1 concerning the Proverbs of Solomon is taken seriously
by him. He thus removes any references to other Proverbs. He moreover
rewrites some sayings based upon a different understanding of these passages.
Finally, literary perspectives are incorporated on various levels. The story with its
literary nuances and not the individual lexeme was important to this translator.
