Jewish Publication Society Tanakh: The Holy Scriptures, Cloth Edition

This modern English translation of the Hebrew Bible is unrivaled for its precise and elegant rendering of the 10th-century Masoretic text. Structured on the traditional Jewish divisions of Scripture, (Torah, Prophets, and Sacred Writings), it reflects the best of contemporary Jewish biblical and semitic studies. Savor it to better understand the richness and nuances of the original Hebrew! 1,624 pages, beautiful blue hardcover with gold stamping and dust jacket, 6'' x 9'', from the Jewish Publication Society.

This book is wonderful for comparing scriptures from other translations. Certain words in Hebrew have just a slight difference of translation and can make the world of difference when studying the Scriptures in depth. I use it all the time!

This is a wonderful masterpiece of Biblical interpretation and translation!It draws so much Truth to the surface that has long been hidden by our Common Version and others!Splendidly translated and well written, a masterpiece!I recommend this Bible to all SERIOUS BIBLE STUDENTS, and to none other.If you want the Old Testament Truths that have been hidden in our Common Version, the KJV, then turn here for a fresh vision of God's wonders hidden deep in the Old Testament and mistranslated by the translators of most of our modern Bibles, but correctly and magnificently rendered in this one!To the Truth and To the True God, and our Lord Jesus Christ, Whom this book magnifies, be all the praise and honor and glory!Amen.
