I am looking for resources that go over the history of the Masoretic vs. Septuagint debate.
Comparisons. Language resources. Hebrew idioms in the Septuagint.
Thanks

I think you should consult the work of Emanuel Tov, J. L. Magnes Professor of Bible at Hebrew University, Jerusalem. Dr. Tov has done extensive work comparing the Greek and Hebrew Bibles. You might also be interested in Page Kelly's book introducing the Masora in his book: "The Masorah of Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia." I hope that helps you get started! - john
