St. Athanasius Academy Septuagint

According to the introduction, "the contributors used the Alfred Rahls edition of the Greek text as the basis for the English translation. To this base they brought two additional major sources. The first is the Brenton text, a British translation of the Greek Old Testament, published in 1851. The availability of this work, and the respect accorded it, made it an obvious choice as a source document. Secondly, Thomas Nelson Publishers granted use of the Old Testament text of the New King James Version in the places where the English translation of the LXX would match that of the Masoretic (Hebrew) text. The development of the St. Athanasius Academy carefully studied these sources, along with other sources, to produce an English Old Testament text suitable for the project."

The New Testament is from the New King James Version.
