English: The relationships among the various ancient manuscripts of the Old Testament, according to the Encyclopaedia Biblica. Dotted pale blue lines indicate texts which were used to correct the main source.

The isolated letters are standard siglums designating particularly significant manuscripts:

  • א [aleph] = Codex Sinaiticus
  • A = Codex Alexandrinus
  • B = Codex Vaticanus
  • Q = Codex Marchalianus

In addition, the standard abbreviations:

  • MT = Masoretic Text
  • LXX = Septuagint - in this diagram, this refers to the original version of the Septuagint (as opposed to Lucian, Heysicius, Hexaplar, A, B, X [aleph], etc., the Old Testaments/Hebrew Bibles of which are commonly also called Septuagint)
