Examines Greek versions of the biblical Book of Esther, focusing on the relationship of the Alpha-text to its parent text and that of the parent text to the Masoretic text, to discover whether the Alpha-text was originally a translation of a Semitic source. Discusses the similarities and differences among the versions, and compares the Alpha-text to the Old Greek of Daniel. Appendices offer the three versions of Esther printed in parallel columns, the manuscripts of the Alpha-text, and tables of data from syntax criticism.
