Bible translations into Greek begin with the Septuagint (LXX), the ancient translation of the Hebrew Bible into Koine Greek (3rd1st centuries BC), was the very first Bible translation in any language. It was widely disseminated among ancient Hellenistic Jews, and later became the received text of the Old Testament in the church and the basis of its canon.

The first translation was the original Septuagint, 200BCE. Modern translations of Old and New Testament date from the 19th Century.
