The Scriptures 2009 edition is a literal translation of the Scriptures in English. This translation has restored the original book order of the Hebrew Scriptures, the Tanak, and restored the Name of the Most High, YHWH, which appears in Hebrew characters throughout as: יהוה

The Names of all the books in the Tanak are restored to the original Hebrew. The traditional rendering of the word “Law” has been restored with “Torah” throughout the translation, retaining the richness and full meaning of this word in the Hebrew language. The name by which the Messiah was known, Yahushua, is restored in Hebrew as well and appears in the text as such, יהושע. 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 Tanak are arranged according to the original order of the Hebrew Scriptures, the Torah, the Prophets and the Writings.

During the Feast of Tabernacles in 1999, we read through the entire book of Deuteronomy as a group. Others in the group were reading from this translation and I was following along on a laptop computer, with the King James Version. As they were reading, I would notice various words that were translated differently in The Scriptures as compared to the King James Version. When I examined the original Hebrew words in various lexicons and compared how the Hebrew words were translated in other verses I was struck as to the accuracy of this version. I soon wrote the Institute for Scripture Research, asking for permission to publish an online version of this translation.
