Summary of LXX Isaiah

Date: 1st Century B.C.E.

Description: The Septuatint translation of Isaiah is very distinctive. The translator renders a text closely resembling the Hebrew Masoretic text, but with considerable freedom. There seems to be some historical updating in places, presumably to show the translator's own generation that the prophecies apply to them. Like LXX Psalms, LXX Isaiah had a great impact on the New Testament.
