    1. I need to find the 3 manuscripts primarily used by early scholars in their translation of Hebrew Scriptures...does anyone know?

    The 3 manuscripts primarily used by early scholars in their translation of Hebrew Scriptures are:

    1. Septuagint
    2. The Samaritan Pentateuch
    3. Massoretic Text (see attachment for various versions)

    Note: The Septuagint version of the Scriptures is believed to be more accurate than the Massoretic and the Samaritan text. In fact, it appears that the Massoretic text is based somewhat upon the Samaritan text. The Septuagint version is not based upon the Massoretic or the Samaritan text. This means the Septuagint text is superior ...
