Missing verses in LXX
Posted 08 September 2007 - 12:56 PM
Is it the Ralf's edition or is there something wrong with my text module?
From the NET Notes (cited below) I gather that there are LXX verses for this portion of Lamentation.
tc The MT reads tDmVnw… (tamnu) “indeed we are [not] cut off,” Qal perfect 1st person common plural from t;DmAM (tamam, “be finished”): “[Because of] the kindnesses of the LORD, we are not cut off.” However, the ancient versions (LXX, Syriac Peshitta, Aramaic Targum) and many medieval Hebrew MSS preserve the alternate reading t;Dm;w… (tammu), Qal perfect 3rd person common plural from t;DmAM (tamam, “to be finished”): “The kindnesses of the LORD never cease.”
Sorry for the scrambled characters. I don't know how to put the Hebrew font into this posting.

On the strength of the old codices, Rahlf's ed. omitted them. On the strength of Origen and C and the MT, evidently Swete included them. In support of their antiquity is their inclusion in the Targums and the Syriac versions. It is also interesting that Jerome included them in the Vulgate so they must have been in his Hebrew mss.
I do not have an explanation for their absence in some old Greek mss. I do not have my sources here to check if they have shown up in the Dead Sea Scrolls.
