|The Scriptures (ISR)|
|Old Covenant||New Covenant|
There are four purposes for this translation:
The titles of the books are transliterations of the names of the books of the Old Covenant and, where appropriate, likewise, of those of the New covenant. The order of the Old Covenant is the traditional Hebraic order of the Tanakh.
The Old Covenant is based on the Massoretic Hebrew and Aramaic text, according to the 1937 edition of Kittel's Biblia Hebraica. The New Covenant is based on the Textus Receptus, being modified with the use of such other texts as the Nestle-Aland and Shem Tob, as seemed appropriate.
The Institute for Scriptural Research (ISR), located in the Republic of South Africa, uses the terms Pre-Messianic Scriptures for the Old Covenant and Messianic Scriptures for the New Covenant.

In the beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim,
and the Word was Elohim.
