Comparing the Septuagint and King James Bibles

The chapter by chapter and verse by verse format uses the Brenton English portion of the Septuagint text and the King James Masoretic text.

Proverbs 16, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31 and Jeremias (Jeremiah) chapter 26 are in a different order in Brenton’s translation. These are switched around for comparison to the KJV. The order of the Brenton text can be seen at the main LXX section of this web site.

The Apocrypha is not included in this comparison as it is not in the modern day printing of the King James and deemed uninspired by Protestant leaders. Although, you will find that all English Protestant (including the King James) Bibles included the so called Apocryphal books before the early 1820's. For some reason these books were removed in all the later printing.
