      I found the source for the assertion of the translator of an
      Orthodox New Testament that the MT is a translation of the LXX into
      Hebrew: it's from TRANSMISSION OF THE TEXT OF THE HOLY BIBLE by Dr
      Constantine Siamakis, Institute For Byzantine and Modern Greek
      Studies, Belmont, MA, 1997: "The Hebrew version in circulation today,
      the so-alled Massoretic Text, is chiefly a retranslation of the
      Septuagint into medieval Hebrew that was produced in stages between
      the 2nd and 9th century A.D. As a result, it contains many Greek
      words, such as Ur=Chor=Chora, i.e., Land (GENESIS 11:31);
      phoirion=phoreion-palanquin (SONG OF SONGS 3:9); and paradeisos (SONG
      OF SONGS 4:13)...and many others" (pg. 42).
      Is he wrong?
