Abstract Before translating the Greek text of Jeremiah, several questions have to be answered, for example, which Greek text should be translated? Into what language or variety of language should the text be translated? From what viewpoint should the text be translated? The present paper will focus on the last question. The Greek text of Jeremiah can be translated from several viewpoints, two of which are the viewpoint of the original translator and the viewpoint of the subsequent reader.
