Product Description

The JPS Hebrew-English TANAKH features the oldest-known complete Hebrew version of the Holy Scriptures, side by side with JPS's renowned English translation. Its well-designed format allows for ease of reading and features clear type, an engaging and efficient two-column format that enables readers to move quickly from one language to another, and an organization that contemporary readers will find familiar.

The Hebrew text of this TANAKH is based on the famed Leningrad Codex, the Masoretic text traceable to Aaron Ben Moses ben-Asher, c.930 c.e. Ben-Asher researched all available texts to compile an authoritative Bible manuscript. In 1010 c.e. his work was revised by Samuel ben Jacob, a scribe in Egypt. Lost for centuries, the manuscript was eventually discovered in the mid-nineteenth century and became known as the Leningrad Codex. This edition adapts the latest BHS edition of the Leningrad text by correcting errors and providing modern paragraphing.

The English text in this TANAKH is a slightly updated version of the acclaimed 1985 JPS translation. Wherever possible, the results of modern study of the languages and culture of the ancient Near East have been brought to bear on the biblical text, which allows for an English style reflective of the biblical spirit and language rather than of the era of the translation.

This edition also includes an informative preface that discusses the history of Bible translation, focusing on the latest JPS English translation of the Holy Scriptures. It is the result of a 30-year interdenominational collaboration of eminent Jewish Bible scholars.

    Was very surprised at first to see you read this bible back to frontt. After thinking about it it is how they read. Took a little time to get use to but I feel at times I am back in Biblical times and will day dream of being in the temple. Will share it and tell others. When it arrived it was oackage very carefully and was in great shape. Thank oyu

    This was my first Hebrew/English Bible, which I purchased soon after publication, and I continue to use it for its excellent quality, scholarly (if brief) footnotes, and expansive introductory notes. The softcover and binding have held up exceptionally well over the years. Canonical order of books and easily identified Torah portions make this appropriate for religious and synagogue use while the footnotes provide an excellent springboard for further and deeper study. Highly recommended.
