Publisher Comments:

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.

KIER8, July 3, 2008 (view all comments by KIER8)
The new JPS edition of the Tanakh {Bible] should be found in evey American church and synagogue and in the homes of every American Jew and Christian. It is a pleasure to read an accurate, literate, contemporary English language edition of the Bible according to the traditional Hebrew text. A team of scholars and rabbis from the three major divisions of American Judaism reviewed the insights of ancient, medieval, and modern Bible scholars and experts in Near Eastern languages, culture, and archaeology for three decades to produce this volume.
