LXX versions

Postby John L » Mon Jun 14, 2004 5:56 pm

I know this may be a little off topic, somewhat. But I have just ordered Brentons LXX. I do know of Rahlfs, which is supposed to be really good. But does anyone know if there is much differents in the texts? I know Rahlfs has more variants then Brentons, and Brenton also has an English translation beside the Greek. But is the texts pretty much exact as far as the Greek text goes. The Brenton uses the Vaticanus in all but those places except where the Vaticanus is lacking, and uses ther Alexandrinus to fill in.

Anybody here who has any experience with these versions?
