Greek OT (Septuagint), Psalms 128

1   ωδη των αναβαθμων πλεονακις επολεμησαν με εκ νεοτητος μου ειπατω δη ισραηλ

2   πλεονακις επολεμησαν με εκ νεοτητος μου και γαρ ουκ ηδυνηθησαν μοι

3   επι του νωτου μου ετεκταινον οι αμαρτωλοι εμακρυναν την ανομιαν αυτων

4   κυριος δικαιος συνεκοψεν αυχενας αμαρτωλων

5   αισχυνθητωσαν και αποστραφητωσαν εις τα οπισω παντες οι μισουντες σιων

6   γενηθητωσαν ως χορτος δωματων ος προ του εκσπασθηναι εξηρανθη

7   ου ουκ επληρωσεν την χειρα αυτου ο θεριζων και τον κολπον αυτου ο τα δραγματα συλλεγων

8   και ουκ ειπαν οι παραγοντες ευλογια κυριου εφ' υμας ευλογηκαμεν υμας εν ονοματι κυριου

Septuagint (often abbreviated LXX) is the name given to the Greek translation of the Jewish Scriptures. The Septuagint has its origin in Alexandria, Egypt and was translated between 300-200 BC. Widely used among Hellenistic Jews, this Greek translation was produced because many Jews spread throughout the empire were beginning to lose their Hebrew language. According to an ancient document called the Letter of Aristeas, it is believed that 70 to 72 Jewish scholars were commissioned during the reign of Ptolemy Philadelphus to carry out the task of translation. The term "Septuagint" means seventy in Latin, and the text is so named to the credit of these 70 scholars.
