Septuagint.Bible is a joint initiative between the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America and the Hellenic Bible Society. The aim of Septuagint.Bible is to:

  • Make available the living Septuagint text as it is used in the sacred services of the Orthodox Christian Church as well as for private devotion in the life of Orthodox Christians worldwide.
  • Promote easy accessibility to the Septuagint.
  • Publish a properly edited edition of the Septuagint for use in the Divine Services of the Orthodox Christian Church.

The Septuagint (LXX), also called the Translation of the Seventy, is the Greek translation of the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament).

The Septuagint has been a living part of the faith and worship of the Orthodox Christian Church since the time of the Apostles. It still serves as the source for the Old Testament readings in the various liturgical services of the Orthodox Church.
