The Scriptures Translation

The Scriptures by the Institute for Scripture Research: "The divine Name (the tetragrammaton), YHWH, appears in Hebrew characters throughout the translation in the Tanakh (Torah, Nevi'im, Kethuvim) and also in the Messianic Scriptures. The name by which the Messiah was known, Y'hoshua/Yeshua, is restored in Hebrew as well and appears in the text as such, The original Hebrew personal names of people and places are restored throughout the Scriptures, such as 'Yirmeyahu' for Jeremiah, 'Yeshayahu', for Isaiah and 'Mosheh' for Moses and in the Messianic Scriptures, 'Mattithyahu' for Matthew etc. Words and names, as far as possible, have been corrected in order to eliminate any names of idolatrous origin. The books in the Tanakh are arranged according to the original order of the Hebrew Scriptures, the Torah, the Prophets and the Writings. Difficult phrases in the Scriptures are explained in footnotes and the explanatory word list."

The translation may also be accessed online here.
