Testament, THE OLD. I. NAME. The word “testament”, Hebrew berith, Greek diath?k?, primarily signifies the covenant which God entered into first with Abraham, then with the people of Prophets had knowledge of a new covenant to which the one concluded on Mount Sinai should give way. Accordingly Christ at the Last Supper speaks of the blood of the new testament. The Greek Old Testament was not like the New Testament the work of a single generation, nor are its books as homogeneous in their general character. The Septuagint is a collection of translations interspersed with original Greek works, the translations belonging partly to the third century B.C., partly to the second and first, and the original.
