It is the first such Bible available to students of Scriptures who speak English. With it, one can utilize lexicons, word books, and other recent aids.

The Hebrew text in the Old Testament is the Masoretic text. The Greek text in the New Testament is the Received Text (differing slightly from other printed editions).

There are two English translations: one located directly under each Hebrew or Greek word and "The Literal Translation of the Bible" in a narrow column to the left. The latter straight-forward translation makes it easy to see proper word order in English and to assimilate the message of the text. Both translations are word-for-word, but are not absolute, literal representations of the Hebrew and Greek words.

The personal name of God is rendered either Jehovah or Jah. The translators preferred JHWH to YHWH because of the established English usage for Bible names beginning with this letter (e.g., Jacob and Joseph). Greek names for Old Testament persons in the New Testament are spelled as in the Old Testament. "Mary" is rendered Miriam in consistency with the Greek form when translated under the Greek word.

Above each Hebrew or Greek word is a number as it appears in Strong's Concordance and lexicons. This opens Bible study possibilities for those who wish to understand the Scriptures better. The Hebrew and the Greek alphabets appear before the preface.

Genesis 1: 1, 2

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth; and the earth being without form and empty, and darkness on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God moving gently on the face of the waters,


John 1: 1 - 3

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and without Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being.
