929 Project: Abbreviations and Acronyms

July 15, 2018

This is a placeholder page to list abbreviations and acronyms that I use my 929 series of posts.  This list of abbreviations and acronyms will expand as I go through the series.

929 English The English 929 website
929 Hebrew The Hebrew 929 website

BR Martin Buber and Franz Rosenzweig’s German translation of the Hebrew Bible.

EB-NCE The Norton Critical Edition of the English Bible
Fox See Shoc
HB-A Robert Alter’s translation and commentary on the Hebrew Bible, scheduled to be published in December 2018.  Until publication, references will be to Alter’s current versions, including his Five Books of Moses.

KJV The King James translation of the Hebrew Bible.  Widely available (for example, here).  For printed versions, I recommend the EB-NCE.
LXX Septuagint translations.  This refers to a corpus of ancient Greek translations of the Hebrew Bible.  Note that multiple translations exist, so it is an error to refer to the Septuagint.  I recommend the Göttingen Septuaginta.  For English translation, I recommend NETS.
