Re: [lxx] SAD NEWS: John W. Wevers
- I have 4 different LXX Bibles.
Three are printed versions:
1. The Apostolic Bible Polyglott
2. The Complete Apostles' Bible
3. The Sir Lancelot Brenton edition
The other is a pdf file stored on my computer:
4. The NETS (New English Translation of the Septuagint)
All of them except for the Apostolic Bible Polyglott have the following as part
of verse 17 in chapter 42 of the book of Job:
"And Job died, an old man and full of days; and it is written that he will rise
again with those whom the Lord raises up."
I thought of that portion of verse 17 when I read what Peter Papoutsis said
about John W. Wevers, an elderly scholar who died at the age of 9, after
spending so much of his life in the Word of God.
That verse is not in my King James Version which I usually use but I have used
that verse when preaching a funeral some years ago.

May his memory truly be eternal. May he rest in the peace of Christ and rise
again in the hope of Christ's resurrection.
