Dating from the 5th or 6th century CE, the Ethiopic translation of the Old Testament is one of the 'daughter versions' derived from the Greek text of the Septuagint. In this book, based on his 1995 Schweich Lectures, Knibb analyses details of the translation's syntax and the consistency and diversity of its translation-equivalents; and he assesses the evidence for later revisions made on the basis of versions in other languages.
