None of the above are available. However, there is a version of
LXX called LXXM which has new testament Greek Strongs
Numbers embedded in it, and morphological information too.
These can be used to cross-reference if the Strong's Greek, and
the Packard (morphological) dictionaries are installed.
There will eventually be a version of the Sword front end which is
being called Sword 2 at present. This will allow two or more
synchronised windows to display the same verse in different
texts. For this reason, it is not likely that anyone will bother to
make an interlinear version of any pair of texts. The interlinear
New Testament is different in that it has a word by word literal
equivalent inserted as footnotes. Obviously a word-for-word
equivalence is nothing like a translation, but can be useful. I don't
think anyone is working on anything similar for the LXX - although
with the Strongs and Morphological information already available
the process could be automated, I suppose.
If you know of any existing e-texts which meet your needs, tell us -
we are always on the lookout for new source materials.
