Publisher's Description

Read our customer guide

Regarded throughout the English-speaking world as the standard English translation of the Holy Scriptures, the JPS TANAKH has been acclaimed by scholars, rabbis, lay leaders, Jews, and Christians alike. The JPS TANAKH is an entirely original translation of the Holy Scriptures into contemporary English, based on the Masoretic (the traditional Hebrew) text. It is the culmination of three decades of collaboration by academic scholars and rabbis, representing the three largest branches of organized Judaism in the United States. Not since the third century b.c.e., when 72 elders of the tribes of Israel created the Greek translation of Scriptures known as the Septuagint has such a broad-based committee of Jewish scholars produced a major Bible translation.

In executing this monumental task, the translators made use of the entire range of biblical interpretation, ancient and modern, Jewish and non-Jewish. They drew upon the latest findings in linguistics and archaeology, as well as the work of early rabbinic and medieval commentators, grammarians, and philologians. The resulting text is a triumph of literary style and biblical scholarship, unsurpassed in accuracy and clarity.

    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.
