Item description for A Critical Edition of the Coptic (Bohairic) Pentateuch (Septuagint and Cognate Studies Series) (English and Greek Edition) by Melvin K. Peters...
[From the Editor's Acknowledgments] Because a Greek critical edition for Exodus is not yet available, the preparation of its Coptic text was potentially more difficult than that of Genesis or Deuteronomy. Happily, this procedural problem was solved and many other textual decisions simplified by the kindness of my former mentor Prof. J. W. Wevers of Toronto who made available a prepublication copy of his critical text of Exodus for the Gttingen Septuagint series. It helped resolve, among other things, the long standing confusion in the numbering of the later chapters of the book. Chapter and verse numbers of the present Coptic edition are thus aligned fully* with those of that Greek critical edition most likely to remain standard in the coming years. (*On rare occasions the Coptic and Greek are not aligned. The Coptic numbering is always consecutive; the corresponding Greek [Wevers] numbering appears in parentheses within the text.)
