Studies in the Hebrew Bible, Qumran, and the Septuagint, Presented to Eugene Ulrich (edd. Peter W. Flint, Emanuel Tov and James C. VanderKam.) VTSup 101, Brill 2006 403-413.

My focus in this paper will be on this "notable discontinuity," which at times, I believe, points up a dimension of the translation that would seem to stand in direct contradiction to its frequent indulgence in senseless transcription of its source text and its slavish insistence on isomorphic representation of the Hebrew. I have in mind here Greek Jeremiah's exegetical dimension.1 I shall deal in depth with only one item. I have decided to restrict myself the more since, in my view, identifying meaningful exegesis and exposition in a formal correspondence type of translation is a delicate and hazardous undertaking.2 Given the noted complexity of Greek Jeremiah, every item of significance tends to have ramifications for the entire book. What I have chosen is no exception. (Albert Pietersma)
