Origen’s massive text critical tool known as the Hexapla, aligning the Hebrew text and various Greek versions, made its way into Syriac, thanks to Paull of Tella in 616-617, in the form of a Syriac version of the column of the revised Septuagint, complete with Origen’s critical signs to mark additions and omissions in comparison with the Hebrew text. In this work, two volumes in one, Middeldorpf presents an edition of a large part of the Old Testament (2 Kings, Isaiah, the Minor Prophets, Proverbs, Job, Song of Songs, Lamentations, and Ecclesiastes) together with over 250 pages of philological commentary. Readers who study the Syriac Bible, as well as Septuagint scholars, will find Middeldorpf’s text and commentary of great interest.
