Tools for Adults Studying Torah
I highly recommend reading scripture each year from a different Hebraic translation. Below are the different versions I’ve read:
2013 – 2014 Torah Cycle: Schocken Bible. I have to tell you I DO NOT like the commentary part, but I love the language of the Scriptures. Just being honest in my evaluation of the translation. I like having a book to hold, but if you want to read it online, here is a pdf.
2012 – 2013 Torah Cycle: Onkelos. This is a GREAT set of 5 books. I refer back to these regularly. It is my favorite. Period.
2009 – 2012 Torah Cycle: Stone’s Chumash. My second favorite.
I have several different sets of commentary (Onkelos and Stone’s Chumash are my favorites for the Torah Portions). For the Tanakh (rest of the Old Testament), I use Keil and Delitzsch.
In my humble opinion, the absolute BEST translation of the Gospels is Delitzsch’s Hebrew Gospels.
Just about anything from Artscroll… I could go broke at this store! (Note, if you visit this store on Shabbat, they will be closed… they honor the Sabbath)!
eSword. It is a free Bible Study Software. I got mine from this church years ago and have never received one piece of junk mail due to it. This software has multiple version of scripture (and you know how I love to read different translations) including KJV, Scriptures, JPS, Peshitta, etc. And it has several different lexicons including Strongs, BDB and Thayers. I highly recommend you get this software and it is free.
Blue Letter Bible. Is a website that I take the Strong’s number from eSword and go search to see how the word has been used in other verses. It has the Gesenius’ definition of Hebrew words, which I just love!

I am always looking for my next year’s translation to read Torah from. If you have a great Hebraic perspective Bible that I did not list here, please leave me a comment below!
Until next week… Shalom Mishpocha!
