Parsed Greek NT and Septuagint online

I ran across these web links recently and want to spread the surprise around.

The Septuagint is a Greek translation of the Old Testament done by the Jewish people in the 2nd or 3rd century B.C. It is the "Bible" that the apostles and leaders of the early church used, and is quoted often in the New Testament, differing somewhat from a literal quote of the Old Testament in Hebrew.

Here is a link to the New English Translation of the Septuagint, still in progress.

Even better, the page at offers the Septuagint (Greek OT) and the Greek New Testament, with full parsing, live, online. If you can grok Greek, go there!!

At Hubert's page, hover the mouse over any Greek word in the text. Notice how the lexical form and complete parsing comes up. Click on the word, and you will switch to a "Word Details" page, showing word frequency and much more statistical data of how often that word (or forms of it) appear in the Scripture. Hit the back button when done reading. Then on the navigation bar to the left, select the "Greek" language and one of the Old Testament books, and you will see parsing in the Septuagint, also.

The only thing that's not "live" here is a parsed Hebrew Old Testament, but I'm sure that it's coming. What a great page for poor online Greek students!

Eric, you have a beautiful family and the song on your other web page really rocks, but unscripted is the best for me and I love this Greek NT and LXX with the hover feature. Thanks for providing fabulous resources for the body of Christ and others. Visit my page sometime Puddleglum's foot. Blessings.
