5.0 out of 5 stars Exodus Revealed, July 15, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've wanted to get closer to the text for devotional purposes but not yet mustered a serious attempt to learn Hebrew. This approach significantly leapfrogs the benefits of beginners Hebrew.
Reading this alongside the NIV made me see things in the NIV I'd never noticed before. Somehow if it reads in natural English I miss just how significant some of the things being said are. One or two things have hit me that are just different to the NIV. Moses does not say "Here I am" to the burning bush - but rather "look me". Might seem like a small thing but it does give a different slant on what is going on.
I love the meaning of every person and place name being immediately accessible as I read the text - it adds alot to the meaning. So the Eygptians were squeezing the sons of Israel and Eygypt was Two Straits whereas the promised land is wide. I also love being able to read out loud the transliterated Hebrew to hear what the original sounds like.
I've really got alot from the Mechanical translations - a plea to the author: could you do Psalms next?
