      Jerome used Origen's Hexapla, which consisted of a Hebrew Text, translitered version of the Hebrew into Greek, a Greek translation from Aquila, Symmachus, Septuagint, and Theodotion.  There are actually different stages in his life that he translated from Greek into Latin and Hebrew into Latin.  If you ever have the chance to study any of St. Jerome's writings do it, it is very enlightening.  He refers to these version alot in his works. 
      I hope one day that Origen's Hexapla will be discovered in some way.  There is a Syriac Version of it.

      In the Fischer/Weber et al. volume (Biblia Sacra iuxta vulgatam versionem) they are printed on facing pages, the LXX on the left, and the Hebrew on the right.

      Jerome made two translations of the Psalms - one from the Septuagint,
      and one from the Hebrew. I'm not sure which one is usually published. I
      presume the Hebrew, but I seem to remember that the Septuagint version
      also became very popular.
