Hebrew Bible (Alter)

The Hebrew Bible: A Translation with Commentary is an English translation of the Hebrew Bible completed by the critic Robert Alter in 2018. It was written over the course of two decades. Alter's translation is considered unique in its being a one-man translation of the entire Hebrew Bible. Moreover, while most translations aimed to preserve theological accuracy, Alter's translation aims to convey the literary style of the original Hebrew text in English, recreating as much as possible its poetic rhythms and metaphors; the translation is accompanied by a short commentary to elucidate the text. It has been praised for its elegant prose style by scholars of comparative literature, such as Ilana Pardes, Bible scholars like Yair Zakovitch of the Hebrew University. Other scholars, such as Edward Greenstein of Bar-Ilan University’s Bible department, have criticized the work for its inaccuracies. Official website
