The Mechanical method of translating the Bible is a new and unique style of translating that translates each Hebrew word, prefix and suffix exactly the same way every time it occurs and in the same order as they appear in the Hebrew text. This translation will allow a reader, who has no background in Hebrew, to see the text from a Hebraic perspective, without the interjection of a translator’s theological opinions and bias. As this style of translation also identifies the morphology of each Hebrew word using the English language, it is a useful tool for those who are learning to read Biblical Hebrew.

This translation includes:

  • An introductory text explaining the background and methodology of the mechanical translation.
  • An introductory text describing the mechanics of the Hebrew language and the history of the Torah.
  • Every Hebrew word of the Torah with its mechanical translation and transliteration.
  • A “revised” translation for each verse that rearranges the text so that it is understandable to English readers.
  • Over 1,000 footnotes on the Hebrew grammar, idioms and alternate translations and meanings.
  • A lexicon including every Hebrew word in the Torah arranged by their roots.
  • A concordance to aid the reader in locating specific words within the Torah.

Myrtle Lim: Readable and simple to understand

Eric John Nagel: This has been a wonderful tool that I have used ever since the first edition and even perhaps the rough draft, I think I even helped edit some. Now I am joyful that I can use it online and through the entire Torah. Blessings, eric

Wesley 'Ley' Rose: My friend Mr Brenner has added a new dimension of thought, understanding, and value to Biblical Hebrew study. His careful inspection and diligent adherence to the Hebrew structure and depth of the Hebrew language have prooved an excellent transliteration / translation of what some scholars considered a dead language. It comes alive with vibrant meaning and proves to be a treasure worth looking into. Do yourself a favor, take the time to examine this fresh look at ancient Hebrew and it's Biblical view reevaluated and redefined.
