Since most protestant-oriented bibles used the Masoretic text as the basis for their OT translation, are there any bibles that leveraged the Septuagint instead?

Thanks,

Mike

My print library has The Orthodox Study Bible (ISBN-13: 9780718003593)

Digital resources to consider => Lexham English Septuagint & Eastern Orthodox Bible Collection

Pre-order to consider => The Holy Orthodox Bible (9 vols.) that does not yet have a ship date.

Not sure what you're seeking.

1. Lexham English Septuagint (LES) translates the LXX. It also connects to the Lexham LXX Interlinear, and an analytical lexicon.

2. New English Translation of the Septuagint (NETS) is more widely referenced academically.

3. Older translations are offered also eg Brenton.

4. Or translations that combine use of the MT, LXX and DSS ... eg the International Standard Version (ISV).
