... Allen b. 1932, Newark, New Jersey, USA. A name synonymous with ‘notorious’, Allen Klein has a reputation as one of the most litigious, and thus feared, entrepreneurs in the music business. He spent his formative years at a Hebrew orphanage, then studied accountancy, paying for his own tuition along the way. During the early 60s, he took over the affairs of singer Buddy Knox and claimed to discover irregularities in the royalties he was due from his record company. The technique was habitual. Again and again, Klein would accost record companies, insist on...

.... The translator made use of the Greek version of Kings , possibly in a nonrevised form (Shenkel). The text of the supplements in 2 Paraleipomena 35–36 is taken from the old, nonrevised Greek of Kings , or at least from an old pre-Lucianic recension (Klein). G. Gerleman and L. C. Allen argue, rather, in favor of a secondary assimilation of both Greek versions. A “Prayer of Manasseh, king of Judah, when the king of Assyria put him in prison” is among the Noncanonical Psalms found at Qumran (4Q381, frg. 33.8; cf. 2 Chr. 33 ). The Second Book...
