    Thank you for explaining what is contained in the printed edition of LXXRH. Do you also know what is meant by the letter A when Judges 11:39 is opened?

    There are two readings of Judges 11:39 in LXXRH:

    Hello Vlad,

    The A is for Alexandrinus. The Rahlfs edition has two separate texts for Joshua and Judges. In the print edition they are superposed, as in BW. Alexandrinus offers a text that is fairly divergent from other witnesses. One of the two is further from the Massoretic text than the other. I believe the A text follows the MT more literally, but it's been a while since I've worked on that, and I'm not a specialist on OT, so you would want to verify that.
