The Second Rabbinic Bible 1524
We have provided here the second rabbinic Bible published in 1524. This Bible is also called the Mikraot Gedolot. This Hebrew Bible has four distinct parts:
1. The Biblical text according to the masorah in its letters, vocalization, and cantillation marks.
2. Masoretic notes on the Biblical text.
3. Aramaic Targum. “The targumim (singular: “targum”, Hebrew: תרגום), were spoken paraphrases, explanations, and expansions of the Jewish scriptures that a Rabbi would give in the common language of the listeners, which during the time of this practice was commonly, but not exclusively, Aramaic.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Targum)
4. Biblical commentaries (most common and prominent are medieval commentaries in the peshat tradition).
Please be advised, that with all ancient texts, one must be careful and view it together with other editions/reprints (in case some text is lost or unreadable due to age etcetera). However, this does not reduce the pleasure of reading the original and ancient texts!
Please also be advised, that to ensure speedy download and reading, the Bible/book has been embedded (as Adobe pdf) – whilst it is downloading you will see a progress bar.
