Poor translation of the Holy Scriptures
This is a very poor translation of the Holy Scriptures. To its credit it does restore the name of the Holy one, Blessed be He, and it does use beautiful language. However it is far from a literal translation, and many meanings have been changed from their understood Hebrew meanings. I would not recommend this version to any one. It is filled with replacement theology and poor translations of common Hebrew idioms. If you are looking for a reference version I would recommend the New American Standard Version as a one Bible source. If you are looking for a literal reference version I would recommend the Artscroll edition Tanach for the Holy Scriptures and the Literal and Consistent Translation of the New Testament for the New Testament. They are both easy to read in modern language, but retain the literal meaning without the translators 'helps' for an understood meaning.
