The Oxford Bible Commentary Line-by-line commentary for the New Revised Standard Version Bible.

Procedure in the Commentary.

1.

This commentary will focus on LXX Esther, which is the basis of the NRSV translation. The attempt will be made to see it in its own terms, as a text which is coherent in and of itself. Some comparative comments will be made throughout, however, both with respect to the AT and, more frequently, with respect to the MT. Relatively greater attention will be paid to the Additions, but the material which parallels the MT will also receive comment. In keeping with the judgement that LXX Esther is a novel, the primary emphases in the commentary will be upon the development of plot and character. The Additions will be referred to by letter (Additions A to F), but the chapter and verse designations of the NRSV, which are based on Jerome's placement of the Additions at the end of his translation, are also included.
