The Hebrew of the Pentateuch exhibits a hierarchy of discourse markers that indicate different organization levels in the legal texts. This organization elucidates the relationship (whether coordination or subordination) of legal stipulations with each other. The markers studied include X+yk+Pred and X+r#)+Pred constructions, yk and M) clauses, as well as a specialized use of the particle hnh. The Greek translators may have been sensitive to the use of these markers and even modified them in order to express their particular interpretation of the text.
