Abstract In this article, the author compares the synoptic portions of Samuel/Kings and Chronicles within the Vulgate (i.e. examining Jerome's treatment of Hebrew temporal clauses, conjunctions, particles, word order, along with his omissions and additions) and considers those results in light of the remaining books of the Vulgate Old Testament. It is argued that Jerome became demonstrably less dependent upon the ancient versions and introduced innovations of translation theretofore unseen. This increasing sensitivity to Hebrew syntax reflected in the Vulgate of Chronicles and elsewhere would likewise suggest an increase in Jerome's knowledge and proficiency with regard to the Hebrew language.
