Dead Sea Scrolls-Septuagint Alignments Against the Masoretic Text

The following table shows Septuagint readings which differ from the Masoretic text, but which are supported by the Dead Sea Scrolls.  Underlining is used to highlight the differences so supported.  The "Septuagint" column largely reflects Brenton's translation, and the "Masoretic Text" is based on the American Standard Version.  The table is limited to the first five books of the Bible, but similar variations prevail elsewhere.
  • I have made clarifications where those translations do not sufficiently delineate differences in the source texts.  For instance, Brenton translated the Greek word sunagwghn in Gen 1.9 with "place," which I have replaced with the more exact "gathering." 
  • Note also that for extended passages such as Gen 1.9 and Ex 22.5, the Dead Sea Scroll evidence in favor of the Septuagint reading is often fragmentary.  That is, if the entire scroll were still extant, it would definitely contain additional material not present in the Masoretic text, and the material that has been recovered agrees with the Septuagint.
Although the Dead Sea Scrolls often support Septuagint readings, they also frequently oppose them.  Thus, the alignments listed below are evidence for the antiquity of Hebrew source text of the Septuagint and for the diversity of the Hebrew Old Testament in ancient times.  But they do not, in themselves, argue that the Hebrew source the Septuagint is based upon is preferable to the Masoretic text. 

The list of passages given below was generated using the footnotes in The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible, Abegg, Flint, and Ullrich, HarperCollins, 1999.
