For the Open Siddur Project, the Hierophant welcomes new contributors and explains our mission: The files are in djvu and pdf I added the two in pdf today.

The link is here: At the category page I put a notice that a project to type, proofread, and revise this translation is going on here. It would be appropriate to put a description of this current project at the proper page at English Wikisource where the project began. Thanks Dovi. I added something to the Wikisource discussion page: I also made an edit over at the Wikimedia Commons page.

The folks at Wikisource working on this should know about this because right now, we have pretty much as close to an authoritative source of the JPS as possible available in Unicode plaintext with a Public Domain dedication. Folk can proofread the text if they like, but attention needs to be given to other important work with the JPS If that can be proven, we can expect to see some consequences to how it is being used elsewhere on the web right now.

I am teaching a class on Bereshit in the fall and wanted to distribute the audio and some commentary and do not want to deal with permissions and verse counting, etc.

I searched for a public domain translation that had a Jewish basis and came up empty handed. So, I have started creating my own modernized version of the text based on the JPS.

The main goal is to produce a readable, reasonably accurate translation, to use in class. It is important that it does not make me feel like I am at the renaissance fair whilst reading it. I am using the TXT file on this page as my starting point.

My plan is to release the whole book of Bereshit under the creative commons or similar license. I should have Bereshit completed by the end of August if not sooner.

My questions:. Is there interest in this? I do an entire class on the Genesis through Kings Narrative, so it would be quite an undertaking — but working through every line of the text is giving me quite an intimate experience with it, so I think the work may be worth it. What you are working on is quite important but you may benefit from collaborating with others. We recommend your working together with the Sefaria Project , which uses the JPS as their base for translation. Not sure if anyone is still monitoring these comments but I had an observation about the text file available from this page: Song of Songs ends, there is a gap, and then it picks up in the middle of Ruth chapter Songs 8: Good catch.

While the covenant is an inviolable legal agreement with responsibilities and provisions between two parties the oath is inviolable by the individual who makes it. Hahn is the oath in near- eastern covenants usually took the form of a self-curse by the god and insinuated punishment on the initiator of the covenant should he violate his commitment.

However, shavuah is grammatically in the passive form of the word sheva — seven. Therefore, what makes the oath different from a vow is that an oath is unconditional and a vow is conditional. Furthermore, the legal status of the oath-sworn covenant makes the participants brothers of one bone and one flesh.

Religion: The Tanakh [Full Text]

God swearing by himself would indicate that the promises he made to Abraham would be unconditional and dependent on his sovereignty and eternal existence even after Abraham would die. Theological and Philosophical Premises of Judaism. Academic Studies Press. Brighton, MA. Verse 19 concludes the narrative of the Akeidah as Abraham and company return to Beer Sheva where Abraham settles. Examining all the passages that reference the oath and blessing passage would be exhaustive yet there are some that are vital to understanding how this cord is woven throughout.

The selected passages under analysis include Genesis , ibid. However, there is a progression of the oath that is found throughout these texts. When God makes the covenant with Isaac in Gen. God specifically addresses that he would fulfill the oath he swore to Abraham.

This moment between God and Isaac is one in which the covenant and the oath had been made and this could be considered a stipulation and test to Isaac just as God had put Abraham through tests of faith as well.

The focal point of the covenant with Jacob is the descendants and the blessing through them which the nations will receive. The moment of revelation takes place on the road to Padan Aram and invokes the imagery of the dust of the earth from Genesis This by no means indicates that the oath-covenant is different as it is the one that God made to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob but rather that different aspects of it are stressed in the contexts of these passages.

At the same time there is a stress on the descendants and the families of the earth being blessed in them. This dynamic of the prophetic imagery is illustrated in the passages where the oath- covenant is referred to explicitly. Genesis refers to the stars of the sky in reference to the descendant portion of the covenant.

The difference may seem small when compared to the language used in relation to Isaac but the ground is always a part of the earth and never the whole earth itself. This detail is parallel with the terms family and nation. A family is a smaller unit than a nation just as a man is generally the progenitor of a family. This is seen first in Genesis 10 wherein two passages family and nation in this idea of one that is a part of a greater whole is found. What is also noticeable is that the families of the earth are named after or in relation to their patriarchs.

The context is that of the division of the seventy nations of Noah. From these the coastlands of the nations spread out in their lands, each one according to his language, according to their families, in their nations.

These distinctions are used when comparing and contrasting the language to understand how the nations and families of the earth will bless themselves by the fathers, the descendants, and which aspects were emphasized. Since Abraham is the father of three monotheistic faiths this whole aspect is mirrored in that these faiths span throughout the whole world and yet Jacob alone is the father of one ethnic family alone…Israel.

This progression of the oath and subsequent affirmations of the Abrahamic covenant were constituted with Isaac and Jacob and form a framework for how Israel should view themselves in relation to the covenant as well as the rest of the world around them.

This example set forth by Abraham is found consistently in reference back to his merit in many writings and prayers within Judaism. A Rabbinic Anthology. Abraham, therefore, is the model throughout the Tanakh and his life the ideal example to the children of Israel.

The national heritage recalled is done so for a remembrance of who Israel is called to be and to do righteousness and justice. The individual Abraham had an inheritance in the future the descendants indicated by the promise of God and the community Israel has an inheritance in their father and his faith.

However, it is guarded by covenant and command. The Biblical World.

The University of Chicago Press. Accessed October 1, Exodus is considered to be a continuation of Genesis and this is noted by the reference by Joseph in Genesis about the oath and the fathers.

The reference in Jeremiah takes place towards the end of the southern kingdom and encapsulates the thrust of the covenant from the beginning of the Exodus when Israel was brought forth to be a nation.

At this moment, Jeremiah cries out and reminds unfaithful Israel, towards their end, of their beginning and history in the oath sworn to the fathers and the Exodus. Even though Abraham wavered in issues such as his sending away of Ishmael and Hagar and the doubt expressed in Genesis and v.

He did not receive as many commands as Israel but the archetype of all demands is found in the Akeidah. Covenant love and faithfulness are thus threaded through the Tanakh. Fulfillment of The Oath While many components of the Genesis passage have been analyzed it is the aspect of the actual fulfillment of the oath that is also under consideration here. The fulfillment of the oath is covered in Genesis in all that the LORD swore He would do to fulfill the promises he made to Abraham.

Throughout the many promise passages where the LORD speaks to Abraham there are a variety of ways God communicates how he will do what he has promised. There are three other times the verbal root of fulfill is used in the Torah and they are found in Deuteronomy , , and Deuteronomy and reference the fulfillment of the oath in reference to the fathers. Where and in what way was or is the oath to Abraham fulfilled?

Acts 13 has another narrative where Paul speaks to the men and elders in the synagogue in Antioch. It is from this brief history that the trajectory of Yeshua is set as Paul presents Yeshua as the heir to the Davidic throne and by being raised from the dead is the 54 Acts. Such a focus on the oath-covenant-promise to the fathers indicates that this runs just as much thematically and carries a narrative flow through the Apostolic Writings just as it does throughout the Tanakh.

There is a new dynamic carried throughout the Apostolic Writings in that the fulfillment of the oath-covenant-promise is found in Yeshua the Messiah as a servant of the circumcision- Jewish people.

What God promised to Abraham was not negated by what happened at Sinai. Yet the Sinai legislation did serve a pedagogical function, as a divine accommodation to Israelite transgressors, that is the backsliding descendants and heirs of the Abrahamic promise v. After Israel had sworn a covenant with God at Sinai Exod - which they promptly transgressed Exod - the covenant curse-of-death was triggered Exod Still, the Mosaic Law stipulated many covenant curses Deut , all of which were borne collectively by Israel as a nation, with the notable exception of one singular curse bearing provision that was applied only to individuals Deut Therefore, covenant obedience is a form of grace and mercy for the nations not a legalistic characteristic by for which Israel is to be despised by.

Moriah and Messiah The covenant-command relationship is also found in the role between the Sinaitic covenant and the promise made at Mt.

Moriah…the place of the Akeidah. It could also be 60 Hahn, Scott W. This could also be understood from the way God declared that in every place his Name would be mentioned in relation to the altar of earth on which Israel would bring her sacrifices that from there he would bless. Shalom Spiegel suggests that Mt. There the LORD commanded the blessing, even life forever there they that seek the LORD are not in want of any good thing; there all the righteous are delivered out of trouble.

If a person was rash and made a vow or took and oath, or got himself inextricably entangled in sin, there the LORD will see to his relief and deliverance, by providing him with some substitute or ransom, to atone for his error or folly. This is why it became proverbial that whatever the want and whatever the need of every living being in the Mount of the LORD, it will be seen to.

There will be found the balm for everyone heartsick and the joy for every grief. All the fountains of salvation are there. The Last Trial: The Akeidah. This is not farfetched since within certain Jewish traditions the Akeidah is viewed as a sort of atonement for the subsequent transgressions of Israel.

Therefore, Yeshua is the servant for Israel by whom the nations can bless themselves through Israel, the seed of Abraham. A Revised Canonical Narrative Based on the analysis of the oath-covenant-promise to the fathers throughout the Tanakh and the fulfillment of it by Yeshua in the Apostolic Writings what would a revised Christian or Messianic-Jewish canonical narrative framework contain?


What has been seen throughout the Tanakh and the Apostolic Writings is that the oath to the fathers and the election of Israel is foundational even when it is not in the center of textual passages. It is foundational when Israel sins greatly and is disciplined by God.

By examining the oath-covenant-promise throughout the theological context of the Tanakh and the Apostolic Writings what surfaces in the usage of the oath is what should be considered to be as major a part of the Christian canonical narrative as much as the fall and 76 Neusner, Jacob.
