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:  Shocken Bible.  I like having a book to hold, but if you want to read it online, here is a pdf.

2012 – 2013: Onkelos.  This is a GREAT set of 5 books.  I refer back to these regularly.

2009 – 2012: Stone’s Chumash.

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. You can get this MUCH cheaper than this price at Amazon, but wanted you to see what it is and you can search for a better price.

In my humble opinion, the absolute BEST translation of the Gospels is Delitzsch’s Hebrew Gospels.

Again, I use many different translations, but this is one I use regularly Complete Jewish Bible as well as The Scriptures.

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!
