Now you can understand the exact meaning and intent of Old Testament words and phrases – thanks to the United Bible Societies (UBS) Handbook Series on the Old Testament. Unlike other commentaries which often contain confusing doctrinal interpretations, the Handbook Series focuses its attention on understanding, and precisely translating, the original Hebrew texts. This work explains, in simple English, what each word or phrase means in its original context. After all, that is the first and most important step in any careful study of God's Word. Used by Bible Translators Throughout the World This Handbook Series is being written by the United Bible Societies as an aid to those who faithfully labor to translate the Bible into the many different languages throughout the world. For instance, the Wycliffe Bible Translators use this Series in their work across the far reaches of the globe. However, because of the quality of its exegetical analysis, it was soon found that the Handbook Series was indispensable to every Bible student. Easy to read and use for everyone Many of the issues translators face when translating the Bible into another language are the same ones every Bible student must address in his or her own personal study. And when it comes to personal Bible study, the UBS Handbook Series is simply the easiest-to-understand, yet most comprehensive, original language Bible reference work available today. It is far easier to use, and offers a much more complete understanding of the meaning of a Bible passage to the average person, than most Hebrew word studies, lexicons, dictionaries and grammars combined. Understand the meaning and intent of Old Testament passages The Handbook Series examines every verse (of the books completed) in the Old Testament for its precise meaning and then suggests various ways to translate it into English. Each suggestion is true to the original text. As you read this analysis you will gain a deeper understanding of the contexts and nuances of meaning for each Old Testament passage, as well as gain insight into the translator's craft. You can't help but see new connections between Bible thoughts and themes and the passages you are reading. From this new insight, you will gain a more complete and accurate understanding of the message that the writers of the Old Testament were communicating. All of this will make your study of God's Word much more rewarding, enjoyable and exciting! Build your knowledge by comparing English translations The Handbook Series centers its discussions on a comparison between the Revised Standard Version (RSV) and Today's English Version (TEV) of the Bible. These discussions explain how well these popular Bible versions do in communicating the message of the original texts. The TEV serves as a primary model of how a translation takes shape; however, many other versions are cited as well, especially where they offer more satisfactory models than the TEV. And, even though the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) is considered more up to date than the RSV, the authors find the RSV easier to use for a basis to discuss the ancient text. The NRSV, while attempting to be more easily understood, deviates from the underlying forms of the Hebrew text more than the RSV, revealing “less correspondence with the form and shape of the ancient text.” Fortunately for the reader, if the text is over or under translated, you are told. If the text could have been translated better another way, you are informed of this as well. This kind of comparison provides a complete understanding of how a Bible passage should or should not be translated. These discussions help you better comprehend the original meaning and intent of a particular Bible passage. And by using the PC Study Bible edition of this work, you can also compare other popular Bible versions, such as the NIV, KJV, NKJV, or NASB. The result is that, as you use this work in your study of the Bible, you'll receive a more complete and accurate understanding of God's Word.
