Summary

Here for the first time in English, Benyamim Tsedaka presents the Samaritan version of the Pentateuch the first five books of the Hebrew Bible. Tsedakas expert English translation is presented in parallel columns alongside the more familiar Masoretic Text, the basis of most modern translations. This format highlights the more than six thousand differences between the Samaritan and Masoretic versions; Tsedakas extensive margin notes provide further help and explanation. Detailed indices tie the Samaritan Torah to the Septuagint versions and the Dead Sea Scroll texts.
