LITERARY PERSPECTIVES IN THE SEPTUAGINT OF PROVERBS
AbstractThis 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.
