  They first separated the apocryphal from the canonical books, and divided the latter into twenty-two books, being the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet. Then they divided each book into sections and verses. There is a great difference of opinion as to when the Masoretic Text was written, but it was probably completed in the 10th century AD. The Masoretic Text of the Hebrew Bible as known today is largely based on the Leningrad Codex, a complete Hebrew Bible located in Leningrad, Russia dated to the eleventh century. However, examples of the Masoretic Text style can also be found in the Aleppo Codex, a mostly complete copy of the Hebrew Bible from the s, and can be found in. The Masoretic Text of the Old Testament By V. S. Herrell. The Masoretic Text, other than the Dead Sea Scrolls, is the only existing representation of the Old Testament in Hebrew.

That the Septuagint is the most authoritative text in the Orthodox Church is something that is confirmed in just about any Orthodox catechetical text you could consult. The Septuagint text is the text that the Church has preserved. The Masoretic text is a text that has not been preserved by the Church, and so while it is worthy of study and comparison, it is not equally trustworthy. Other books, such as Daniel and Proverbs, have a stronger Greek influence. The Septuagint may also clarify pronunciation of pre-Masoretic Hebrew; many proper nouns are spelled with Greek vowels in the translation, but contemporary Hebrew texts lacked vowel pointing. However, it is unlikely that all biblical-Hebrew sounds had precise Greek.

Each of these possesses a different degree of holiness or authority. In the Prophets and the Writings the order of the books varies in manuscripts or among Jewish authorities; but there is absolute agreement as to the compass of these two divisions, and no book is transposed from the one into the other. The genealogies of Genesis provide the framework around which the Book of Genesis is structured. Beginning with Adam, genealogical material in Genesis 4, 5, 10, 11, 22, 25, , , and 46 move the narrative forward from the creation to the beginnings of Israel's existence as a people.   Until a third of it was burned in a anti-Jewish uprising in Syria, the Aleppo Codex was considered to be the oldest, most complete, and most accurate of the Masoretes’ manuscripts.
