“The Heart” in the Septuagint (part I)

“The Heart” in the Septuagint

In the previous series an investigation was made into the semantic fields covered by lev/levav of the Old Testament.  This was done by examining all occurrences of these words. In this series, the Old Testament section of the Greek Septuagint is examined at those locations corresponding to the occurrences of lev/levav in the Hebrew text.  The purpose is to determine what Greek words are used to serve purposes similar to the Hebrew words, where in the first place, the same locations, with a similar sense being conveyed, can be found.  This might provide clues to those words in the Greek New Testament that correspond to some degree or another to the Hebrew lev/levav.
