{{OldTestament}}
The '''Septuagint''' (a name derived from the Latin word for "seventy", also referred to as the '''LXX''') is originally referred to a 3rd century B.C. translation of the [[Old Testament|Hebrew ScripturesPentateuch]] into [[Koine Greek]]. By the time of [[Justin Martyr]] (+ c. 160), the term has come to refer to the other scriptural and related texts translated from Hebrew and Aramaic into Greek in the next century. It is the canonical [[Old Testament]] of the [[Orthodox Church]].
