It is an excellent version of YHWH's WORD. I love it and the shipping was extremely fast. I ordered the book on March 12th and it arrived in the mail on March 16th. It was scheduled to come on or after the 19th. The seller had good communication, letting me know when it was shipped and when to expect arrival. Very happy about that.

Altough it was my fault, I wish the Nazarite site had described what the book cover was made out of. That is the only downfall this book has. Last year my friend ordered one and she has a nice cover on hers. I'm not sure if this is how all of the new 2009's are, but they should have specified in the desription of it on the page. I should have contacted the seller and asked them what the cover was made out of. I didn't realize that it was more of a "cardboard" type paper. I wish I had known, I would have ordered a leather-type cover instead if it was available.

Also, for other potential people interested in purchasing the book, it would help if they gave atleast a couple sample pages. I knew what the content was like ahead of time, but I have recommended this book to some and they don't want to blindly buy it without seeing some of the content. I don't think a couple of sample pages would be a bad idea.

Format: Hardcover
Some people will note that the 2009 edition has a few changes from the 1998 edition. More particularly in the Hebraic use of terms relating to the biblical festivals and other terms where there is no accurate English alternative. Not to worry, these Hebrew words are well explained. The new edition also added a few useful timelines, illustrations and maps, making Torah study so much more interesting. This was (and probably still is) the very first independent LITERAL translation from the original text (that is available), using the Hebrew Names of the Almighty and His Son. There has followed a few other translations or rather corrections (from existing translations, such as the KJV), but The Scriptures is probably still by far the best translation.

Didn't get it yet but I have heard from a lot of people this is worth your money and its the second translation that comes close to the original and king James. If you want a little taste before buying I'd suggest people to check out the PDF on the website thescriptures.com but I guarantee you if you are looking for a bible that uses original names, places, the name of God instead of lord, Elohim instead of God with the richness of the original meaning this is for you. But, there is another bible produced by these same people who are saling another bible similar to this but gives you more to work with and is a little more costly.

I actually bought two of these books, one for my grandaughter and one for my husband. I have had my own copy for a few years.

I am thoroughly enjoy it as the translation is as close to the Hebrew as you can possibly get and I find that the original is a lot more accurate and makes a lot more sense than the modern versions. It seems to me that the translators of the modern versions have taken the liberty to change the meaning of the original intent in some cases.

It also helps if you have an understanding of the Hebrew alphabet and some understanding of the culture and the times that the original text was written. Before I started reading this version along with other helps there were many things that made no sense or very little sense. Thankfully that confusion is now gone.

Format: Leather Bound Verified Purchase
This is our second copy of our favorite Scripture translation. After comparing 25-30 different iterations, from a Hebraic-roots perspective this is clearly the most accurate and useful translation. Next to it, from a more 'traditional' Christian perspective, both my wife and I favor the NKJV or KJV. The bible is beautifully bound in high quality leather and the type-face is clear and sharp. The only negative of worth mentioning is the size of the typeface which can be difficult for eyes over 40. Should that be the case, both my wife and I recommend the 'paperback' edition which is much larger is size, type, and thickness and is fairly resilient even if handled numerous times daily. She uses hers numerous times daily at home, worshipping, or while waiting. Her paperback version shows wear but that a credible result of constant use after 6-7 years!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love the ESV Bible. But this book "The Scriptures" is fiercely competing with my ESV Study Book. Why?

Because:

1) the Holy names are restored, and all the rest of the names are restored. It is actually very pleasant to see Jesus / Yeshua's name in its Hebrew form... it breaks away from all the poor use of Yeshua's holy name that our culture and fake Christians have destroyed with the term "Jesus." I hope they won't do the same with Yeshua's closer-pronunciation name. It restores the picture of our amazing Savior and God as He speaks in the Scriptures.

2) they don't use sub-titles... I noticed that an untrained eye can miss important continuation of a conversation between Yeshua and people that a subtitle can break (which can reveal important insights). Though I know subtitles are useful in finding something quickly, but an electronic search tool might break away this dependency.

3) they FINALLY started the new standard bible for which all other bible versions must follow regarding the restored names

4) they don't translate "Red Sea" back in Exodus 10:19, for which is a problem for my dad (always griping about it), and I bet for other people. I appreciate the "Red Sea" translation, but I believe it's best to just stick to what it originally said.

I just wish it were hard cover... but I'll have to take care of it.

Ok, back to reading the Scriptures! :)
