This is my first experiment in making Biblical Hebrew-English graphics based on particular verses of the Bible (meaning both the original Hebrew Scriptures and the Hebrew New Testament version of Franz Delitzsch, translated from the Greek Received Text). The Hebrew texts are “fully pointed” – that is, they have the musical accents, the vowel-points, and the other signs required for a full understanding of the pronunciation and melodic rendition.
For that matter, if I wanted to I could do citations from the Greek Received Text, or perhaps even better, one of the critical editions of the Greek New Testament which seek to restore the original text (in its wording) as accurately as possible. It’s just that 1) I don’t know Greek all that well but do know Hebrew pretty well and 2) for me, Biblical Hebrew is a “personal cultural value”, in my Bible study at the very least. – (יוחנן רכב)
