Abstract The Greek translator of Psalms knew the Greek version of the Pentateuch and exploited it in several ways. Rare Hebrew words are rendered with the same equivalents in the Psalms as in the Pentateuch. Passages in the Psalms are interpreted in the light of passages in the Torah. In a few cases the Psalms text is altered or supplemented on the basis of perceived parallels in the Pentateuch. The paper examines some examples of these phenomena and inquires what they teach us about the project of the translator.
