I'm not sure this is the right place to post this, but it seems more than just a typo.

The reference links in note 14 for Deut 32:8 (NET) take you to the wrong Psalms. Probably has to do with the LXX being referred to prior to the scripture reference. (LXX is hyperlinked) See below.

Heb "the sons of Israel." The idea, perhaps, is that Israel was central to Yahweh’s purposes and all other nations were arranged and distributed according to how they related to Israel. See S. R. Driver, Deuteronomy (ICC), 355–56. For the MT יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּנֵי (béney yisra’el, "sons of Israel") a Qumran fragment has "sons of God," while the LXX reads ἀγγέλων θεοῦ (angelōn theou, "angels of God"), presupposing בְּנֵי אֵל (béney ’el) or בְּנֵי אֵלִים (beney ’elim). "Sons of God" is undoubtedly the original reading; the MT and LXX have each interpreted it differently. MT assumes that the expression "sons of God" refers to Israel (cf. Hos. 1:10), while LXX has assumed that the phrase refers to the angelic heavenly assembly (Pss 29:1; 89:6; cf. as well Ps 82). The phrase is also attested in Ugaritic, where it refers to the high god El’s divine assembly. According to the latter view, which is reflected in the translation, the Lord delegated jurisdiction over the nations to his angelic host (cf. Dan. 10:13–21), while reserving for himself Israel, over whom he rules directly. For a defense of the view taken here, see M. S. Heiser, "Deuteronomy 32:8 and the Sons of God," BSac 158 (2001): 52–74.

The links (copied and pasted) in the previous post works correctly from that post, but within Logos NET notes the Psalm 29:1 link takes you to Psalm 30 in the NET, ESV or KJV (depending on prioritization of course). If you prioritize LXX it takes you to Psalm 29 but the reference should be Psalm 28 in LXX because of the numbering difference. The same holds true with the other links in that particular sentence. The other links seem to be correct.

Thanks for looking into this!

Yes, you correctly identified the cause of the error. Reproting it as a typo is normally done through the right-click Context Menu as that insures that it is entered into the Logos typo tracking system.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
