Item Description...
Overview
The Emphasized Bible is a literal, word-by-word translation with added emphasis to further explain the hidden riches of the original languages. This gives the English reader of the Bible the same advantage as the student of Hebrew and Greek - a knowledge of the exact meaning, proper terminology, and linguistic style of the original languages - all readily accessible on each page.

This is a unique tool for biblical study that includes features not found in any other English translation. Rotherman's analysis of the text utilizes numbered divisions to indicate sentence and paragraph structure and indentations to indicate narrative, biblical speech and poetry. The emphasis on particular words or phrases within the text is marked by a unique system of symbols and indentations which indicate the emphasis in the original languages as well as mark transitions from narrative to speech, speech within speech and poetic parallelism.

Comments on alternate readings in the original text are included in brief footnotes. Where various readings exists, the author indicates where the readings differ among themselves thereby affording valuable insights into the transmission of the text.

Publishers Description
A literal translation of the original text with symbols that allow the non-reader of Greek and Hebrew to discover the force and intent of the original. Double-column pages with 9 point font size.

VERY GOOD, BUT IT'S BEEN SURPASSED!  Dec 14, 2006

Rotherham did a very good job, a three star job, of translating the Bible. It's helpful, informative, and a marvelous translation for its day and age. One can learn a great deal from this version, and many people have done exactly that over the many decades it's has been available. I know a score of serious students of Holy Writ that swear by The Emphasized Bible, so one would definitely be in good company by purchasing and using this version. The Emphasized bible is quite superior to ANY modern translation (such as the NASB, NIV, RSV, ESV, TEV, JB, etc) with a sole exception:

The Concordant Literal New Testament with Keyword Concordance.

The startling, singular nature of the CLNT must be seen to be believed! The textual base is superior to that of the Emphasized Bible, as are the principles of translation by which it was produced. No other Bible is as precisely exact, meticulously consistent, and piercingly literal as the Concordant Literal New Testament. I am competent in reading and writing Koine Greek, and I am quite amazed at how breathtakingly close this translation is to actually being Koine Greek! All of the various grammatical elements of Koine Greek are carried over into English quite successfully, and the English vocabulary consists of spot-on equivalents for every Greek word! The Keyword Concordance is also a Lexicon, giving the reader a transliteration and definition of all Greek words.

The CLNT is a one-of-a-kind unsurpassed (and unequaled) English translation of the Bible. The Concordant Version of the Old Testament will soon be released, and when that occurs the single most accurate and valuable English Bible will be complete.

By all means purchase The Emphasized Bible, but also purchase the much superior Concordant Literal New Testament with Keyword Concordance.

 
Rotherham  Jul 17, 2006
Great and accurate translation of the Bible. The two major flaws that I found were his mis-translation of God hardening Pharoah's heart, and using an ancient, extremely shortened version of Westcott-Hort.
 
Very Good, But It's Been Surpassed!  Apr 6, 2006

Read I WAS A TEENAGE JEHOVAH'S WITNESS and JEHOVAH UNMASKED for two of the wildest rides ever!

No thanks!  Jul 11, 2005
Sent this Bible back to this site ASAP--- gives you a headache trying to decipher all the additions to the text. Stick with a "standard" KJV Study Bible-- you will be much happier!
 
A good resource for private studies in the Holy Scriptures  Jun 22, 2005
This is an excellent resource for the serious student in biblical word studies. Check out http://www.innvista.com/culture/religion/bible/versions/ebr.htm

Excellent book binding - it is actually stitched! Not glued like most present day manufacturing which plagues even "leather bound" varieties which allows a higher markup while delivering a lackluster binding.

One of the previous reviews mention the pros and cons - I agree, good quality opaque paper (liken to a good grade laser printer paper - which is very white, much thicker than typical paper used in most bibles and smooth!) Its physical quality even puts high priced heavy hardcover collegiate textbooks to shame! The print quality however is spotty (faint but still legible) as noted in the other review.

Enough whitespace to make you smile though the print is small.

Enjoy it!
