By David A. Booth on August 20, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This is the Psalter that I leave on my night stand for daily use.

The exceptional quality of the large clear print makes this work a delight to read. Artscroll has also developed a unique method of printing an interlinear text so that the English never seems to intrude into reading the Hebrew - and yet it is there in case you cannot remember the meaning of a particular word.

One extremely minor criticism is that the interlinear often uses a relatively dynamic-equivalence approach. It might have been more helpful if the interlinear was a bit more woodenly literal.

If you love the psalms - you must have this edition!

Tehillim in Hebrew is difficult to render into any language. the Hebrew is a complex poetic style that can only be captured in its original. Yet every chance I get, I find this interlinear to be thought-provoking, inspiring and a treasure. I can pray in the words of David, and with a decent knowledge of Hebrew, the words in English add a whole new layer of meaning. The commentary lends itself to really making the whole text come alive. I have no doubts that this Tehillim will become one of the hallmarks of artscroll, just as the complete artscroll siddur has become a household name. Even english-speakers with little or no background in understanding Hebrew will enjoy this version. However, it would be useful to know at least how to pronounce the Hebrew words.

At the the book includes a list of special occassions in which certain psalms are relevant. Unfortunately the interlinear does not have the benching (birchas hamazon) at the back, which would be useful, but is not necessary nor does it make this book any less of a masterpiece.

I however do have one small quibble. The trop, although not in use today, and yes, does have little meaning, should nonetheless be included. It however was not. Maybe to make the text more readable, but I would have liked to have seen it included.

I use the softcover and its binding has lasted. The hardcover is however more sturdy, but both are durable and do not need re-inforcement.

This is the product of your dreams! Honestly. I don't understand hebrew, and going back and forth between English and Hebrew makes me feel less than smart. Reading this book is like understanding Hebrew... like putting on a pair of glasses when you were previously blind and didn't even know it. The interlinear approach actually makes you smarter. The more you read it, you will actually recognize words more quickly with frequency and actually learn hebrew WHILE you are davening. This is a way to make your prayers heartfelt and meaningful. I actually know people who understand hebrew who still use this book simply because the size of the type (in the pocket size book ) is SO user friendly. I used to go to shul and struggle to follow along. This book of tehillim and other interlilnear books have helped me to find the place where I belong spiritually. i can't recommend this book highly enough. Try it and buy it.

The Interlineary Hebrew and English Psalter (Hardcover)

_The Interlineary Hebrew and English Psalter: in which The Construction of Every Word Is Indicated, and the Root of Each Distinguished by the Use of Hollow and Other Types_. London: Samuel Bagster & Sons, [1845], 24th impression [1970]; and Grand Rapids: Zondervan Publishing House, 1970. .[viii] + [240] pp.

_Sefer Tehillim--The Book of Psalms--with an Interlinear Translation: The Schottenstein Edition; Artscroll Series_. Rabbi Nosson Scherman and Rabbi Meir Zlotowitz, general eds. Brooklyn, New York: Mesorah Publications, 2001. [xviii] + [430] pp.

Each of these is an interlinear Hebrew-English Psalter, that is, the Hebrew Book of Psalms with an English translation of each word in smaller type above the word in Hebrew. So we may ask how they differ from one another.

The Bagster Psalter is intended for the use of Christian students of the Old Testament. While the Hebrew text and the interlinear translation proceed from right to left, the sequence of Psalms and hence the overall organization of the book is from left to right. The long subtitle indicates that it is intended to be used along with a (Biblical)-Hebrew-English dictionary. Nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs in Hebrew are usually based on a three-letter root; other letters are often prefixed to the root in grammatical inflection, but the word must still be looked for in a dictionary under its root, rather than under the first letter of the form in which it appears in any given instance. Hollow type for non-radical letters tells the reader not to look it up using these letters. But if the root has any of four 'weak' consonants, they may disappear in inflection, so the root is still not obvious.

Chabad piqued my interest in saying Tehillim. But I'm not able to translate all of its content as I read. The English translation doesn't provide that extra level of comprehension you get when you're able to translate as you go. When I checked to see if an interlinear translation was available, I learned that this volume provides it.
I already have and enjoy Mesorah's Pirkei Avos with an interlinear translation. What this type of translation does is to provide a more precise translation on a line directly beneath each line of Hebrew. The "<" symbol is used to indicate the end of an English phrase (ex. <The Father< which is directly beneath the Hebrew word "Ahvee."

Double << Indicate a logical break in phrases, and double << in bold signify the end of a sentence.

This may sound complicated, but it is amazingly simple. The use of < in the English keeps your eye reading the Hebrew right to left when you return to it.

Within five minutes with this interlinear translation, you'll be saying Tehillim with comprehension.

The Rebbe's psalm is 111.

In its praise of Hashem is the sentence " The works of His hands are truth and justice."

With the interlinear translation, you immediately see that MAHSAY means "The works..." YAHDOV means "of His hands..." EHMES means "are truth..." OOMEESHPAT means "and justice."

Imagine being able to say that sentence concentrating appropriately upon each Hebrew word.

I highly recommend this beautiful volume of Tehillim.

(Caveat: The volume's Hebrew is, in fact Hebrew. I'm using the English alphabet because I don't have a Hebrew keyboard on my smartphone.)
