The Scriptures is a literal translation of the Bible. There are many stylistic features that set it apart from other Bible translations. For the Old Covenant Scriptures, this translation maintains the original book order of the Tanakh: Torah (Law), Nebi’im (Prophets), and Kethubim (Writings). The table of contents clearly outlines the order of the books for those unfamiliar with the Tanakh. Original Hebrew is used for the name of the Father and Son and other Hebrew names and places are transliterated. The footnotes and explanatory notes bring further clarity to the text.

  • Old Covenant Scriptures follow the Tanakh order
  • Includes a pronunciation table, footnotes, and explanatory notes
  • Improvements to the text—seeking a yet closer equivalent to the literal meaning of the original language
  • Removal of doctrinal comments from footnotes, explanatory notes etc., (including deletion of prophecy hairlines) in favour of more useful notes—thus clearing away obstacles to your unbiased study of Scripture
  • Maps, timelines, and illustrations have been added
  • Quotations / allusions from the Tanakh (O.T.) are in bold type in the Second Writings (N.T.), and are accompanied by the text references—aiding your understanding of the original contexts, and how they influence the writers drawing upon them

    I am disappointed to see people still take ISR seriously after decades of promoting this thing. It’s not an original translation, it’s an amended KJV. The original editor had no training in Biblical languages or Bible translation, and promoted numerous unbiblical ideas and conspiracy theories. The translation is riddled with bias and awkward readings, such as “slaughter place of incense” instead of “altar of incense” (because the original editor believed “altar” to be a pagan word). Other words excluded are “holy” and “church” for no reason other than the editor’s witch-hunt against this alleged “pagan influence.” I own three physical copies of the ISR 2009 and have spent quite a bit of time reviewing it (as well as the 1998 revision). It is awful and should not be trusted as a faithful English translation. If you really want a Messianic Bible, go with the TLV.

    I ordered this back in 2018. Nice to see that it’s now in production.

    I have been waiting since 02/2020. I have a hard copy and I use a free version online to do quick studies and research but it would be great to have it within the software. Now, according to Logos until there is enough interest this edition will not go into production. They also told me that it is up to "us", the customer, to get people interested in the translation. So it may be a while yet before we can download it.

    Which Greektext is used in this translation?

    I would like to add this translation to my Logos library.

    This is a good alternative translation. Let's get it done already. Pretty Please ;-)

    How many people are required to pre-order before we can receive our order? I need it for my studies alongside the CJB and KJV.

    So close! I ordered a hard copy of this, but I can't wait to add this to my Logos collection! Get the word out so that can finally get this out!!!!
