I bought this to ass sit reading the Greek LXX. it is a very simple book. Every Greek word form used in the LXX is listed with a simple link to the basic word form, and from there to the meaning. It has one unexpected use also, it can come in very useful when stuck in some of the more obscure words when reading the Greek New Testament. So, I keep it beside my Thayer as taylor's text covers the majority of difficult words.

Concise, accurate, readable - extremely useful! 24 May 2010
By L. Macklem - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Returning to reading the Septuagint after about 30 years, my Greek is really rusty. Liddell & Scott is hard to use, Bauer incomplete vis-a-vis LXX. This new Analytical Lexicon to the Septuagint is the perfect reference - concise, accurate and readable. I have found it extremely useful. And thanks to the Deutsche Bibelgesellschaft, what a bargain!

All you need is your Septuagint and this 11 July 2012
By Abram Kielsmeier-Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
How can one make her or his way through the Septuagint in Greek in a way that is not entirely frustrating, especially if one comes to the Septuagint with just New Testament Greek as a background? And what if someone wants to read through the Septuagint without having to have multiple resources at hand? One thing I value is not having to use four or five additional reference works to understand the first reference work.

Enter Bernard A. Taylor's Analytical Lexicon to the Septuagint: Expanded Edition.

Taylor lists every single word found in Rahlfs Septuagint, the standard LXX text, as it appears (inflected) in the text. Each word then has full parsing information and the basic word meaning taken from Lust, Eynikel, and Hauspie's Greek-English Lexicon of the Septuagint [GELS].

This means that the user of this expanded edition (ALS, hereafter) does not need an additional lexicon at hand to get basic word meanings. To be sure, Taylor notes: "The abridged GELS entries in this volume include only the basic word definitions, not the contextual meanings found in the subsequent paragraphs of many of that work's entries. The word definitions included are glosses, or translation equivalents, rather than [full] descriptions of each word's meaning."

If you're looking to read the Septuagint and do word studies, you'll need an additional resource. But if you need only the basic meaning (what most people want who are reading straight through), Taylor's lexicon covers all your needs. (And he certainly doesn't claim that the glosses in his ALS are anything more than that, glosses.) You get full parsing information, which then refers you to the lexical form of the word, which then has the basic word meaning from GELS. Especially helpful is the inclusion of proper nouns, so that there is really no word in the LXX that is left untouched by this lexicon.

ALS is intuitive, well-laid out, and easy to use. The Greek font is clear and big enough to read easily. The lexical forms of words (i.e., where the basic word definitions are) are in bold for easy reference. The book is not very heavy (two pounds), so it travels well. More than 20 pages of introductory material clearly and concisely explain the features of the lexicon, abbreviations, suggestions for use, and overview notes on various parts of speech, transliterations, and so on. The introductory materials are instructive and easy to read, yet ALS presents its information so well that its user can easily put it to work right away.

It's tempting to debate the merits of a work like this in print, when all that Taylor offers (and more) can be had in electronic Bible programs like BibleWorks. However, to do that would not be to review this lexicon in its own right. Of course an electronic database (that can parse and provide lexical meanings of words) is faster to use, but a print copy is easier on the eyes, you don't have to wait for it to boot up, etc. That's all beside the point, though. The important thing about Taylor's expanded edition is that it has morphological and lexical analysis, so it functions as an all-in-one supplement to guide the reader through the Greek of the Septuagint.

Analytical Lexicon to the Septuagint: Expanded Edition is now on my bookshelf right next to my Rahlfs Septuagint. It's hard to imagine a more useful Septuagint resource than Taylor's.

Desperately needed for Scholar and layman alike to be able to read the LXX 7 Dec. 2009
By Peter A. Papoutsis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
When I received the ANALYTICAL LEXICON TO THE SEPTUAGINT I was skeptical in its accuracy and utility. After I started to use it boy was I wrong! In every place I had a problem with the Greek word or words (And there were many), this Lexicon did the job of giving me a word's definition that readily helped me understand the verse or text I was reading from the LXX. For those of us that just want to stick with the original biblical languages (and for Orthodox Christians that the LXX), and don't want an English translations of the LXX, this lexicon does the job, and does it quite well. I was very impressed with it and highly recommend it to my fellow Septuagint lovers out there.

Easily Visually Scannable Text 22 Oct. 2011
By J. Morgan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am not an expert in Greek but I try to get more out of scripture than just looking at a translation. I own a few Greek and Hebrew lexicons but this is the first one I have seen like this. It is helpful to me to see it laid out to where you can easily look over all the various forms, and this is the only way I have seen it done like that. Something I was wishing existed but was not sure if it did. Now I know, since I got this in the mail.
I am still probably going to get another Septuagint lexicon, where it goes more into the definitions.

Septuagint Lex 23 Aug. 2012
By LEONARD HUNEKE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This Lexicon is very handy. Definitions are brief but good. For more detailed definitions, I use my N.T. Lex. or Logos 4 software. Book size is small, which makes it easy to handle and transport. Print size, while small, is large and sharp enough that I do not use reading glasses. I am at the age where I use glasses for small print and frequently to distinguish Gk accenting.
