A groundbreaking translation by Everett Fox with Introductions, Commentary, and Notes, published in 1995. "This translation is guided by the principle that the Hebrew Bible, like much of the literature of antiquity, was meant to be read aloud, and that consequently it must be translated with careful attention to rhythm and sound. The translation therefore tries to echo the Hebrew, and to lead the reader back to the sound structure and form of the original."

Reading Leviticus was tedious always. With this version finally it is more clear some distinctive ideas in offering for peace (shalom), redeem, forgiveness, and so.
I am sorry we dont have more schocken-version of Bible books

I really like this Bible, though it has its limitations. It's wonderful for hearing the sounds and structure of the underlying Hebrew (none of the names sound like the versions in a typical English translation!), which does bring out some meaning that would otherwise be lost, but consequently it's not the easiest to read. It also covers only Genesis-Deuteronomy, which is unfortunate since I would enjoy having this kind of work for the entire OT.

Love this, very litteral and helps reveal the underling Hebrew text. Helps reveal some of the plays on words and poetic nature the authors intended that more dynamic translations lose on account of their readability. I highly recommend this text.
