Die Schrift: A Non-Territorial Translation of “The Land”

Die Schrift: A Non-Territorial Translation of “The Land”

Martin Buber and Franz Rosenzweig's translation of the Bible strictly adheres to the text's wording and structure. The eminent thinkers sought to let German readers experience the resonance of the Bible's Hebrew and to capture its primordial meaning. Their rendition of Haazinu presents a provocative interpretation of the bond between God, Israel and its land as both universal and singular.

Are There Gods, Angels, and Demons in Deuteronomy?

Are There Gods, Angels, and Demons in Deuteronomy?

Haazinu: The Song's Enigmatic Climax

The final phrase of Haazinu (Deut 32:1-43) in the MT, וכפר אדמתו עמו, is grammatically problematic, but the textual variants may help clarify its meaning.

Who Wrote the Torah According to the Torah?

Who Wrote the Torah According to the Torah?

Jewish and Christian tradition ascribes authorship of the Pentateuch to Moses in the 13th century B.C.E. Is this what the Pentateuch itself implies about who wrote it and when?
