Wasn't there about 2 years ago several volumes of the Mikraot Gedolot in Accordance?  The Pentateuch Volumes?  Does anyone know why these are no longer available?

 

Thanks, 

 

David

Four volumes of the acclaimed English edition of Miqra’ot Gedolot; translated and annotated by Michael Carasik. Now, for the first time, Miqra’ot Gedolot is available in an accessible English edition. This bundle includes volumes covering Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. First published 500 years ago as the “Rabbinic Bible,” the biblical commentaries known as Miqra’ot Gedolot have inspired and educated generations of Hebrew readers. With this edition, the voices of Rashi, Ibn Ezra, Nahmanides, Rashbam, and other medieval Bible commentators come alive once more, speaking in a contemporary English translation annotated and explicated for lay readers. Each section of this commentary series begins with a set of introductory questions provided by Isaac Abarbanel. Then each verse is expounded by the commentary of the rabbis (Rashi, Rashbam, Ibn Ezra, Hahmanides). Those rabbinic commentaries are then followed by explanatory notes and selected additional comments from the works of Bekhor Shor, Hizkuni, Abarbanel, Sforno, Gersonides, and others. Major Commentators: Rashi — Rabbi Solomon ben Isaac (1040–1105) Rashbam — Rabbi Samuel ben Meir (ca. 1085–ca. 1174) Ibn Ezra — Rabbi Abraham ibn Ezra (1089–1164) Nahmanides — Rabbi Moses ben Nahman (1195–ca. 1270) The Additional Commentators: The Masorah dating from the second half of the first millennium C.E. Bekhor Shor — Joseph ben Isaac Bekhor Shor (12th c.) Kimhi — Rabbi David Kimhi (1160?–1235?) Hizkuni — Rabbi Hezekiah ben Manoḥ (mid–13th c.) Gersonides — Rabbi Levi ben Gershom (1288–1344) Abarbanel — Don Isaac Abarbanel (1437–1508) Sforno — Obadiah ben Jacob Sforno (1470–1550) Note: While the printed version of this publication includes 1) the Hebrew text of the Bible, and 2) two Bible translations (the old Jewish Publication Society translation of 1917 and the new JPS translation of 1985), this module does not contain the actual Hebrew text or translations. It contains all the Notes, Commentary, Editorial Annotations, and Special Topics of the printed version.  The commentary of this module can be linked to run in parallel with any Accordance Bible translation. Endorsement:“Anyone who is unfamiliar with medieval commentary, or who is unable to study the commentators in the original Hebrew, will find The Commentators’ Bible a worthy addition to their book shelves. Carasik has done a real service making this material available.” – The Reporter You may also be interested in: Carasik's podcast site, The Bible Guy The Bible's Many Voices also by Carasik Carasik's podcast site, The Bible's Many Voices

Thanks!  I had forgotten what the name of the module was and only remembered the content.  Glad to see that it is still available after all!

 

Thanks,

Is there any chance of getting the original Hebrew version of Miqra'ot G'dolot in Accordance. That would be helpful for studies in Rabbinic literature when you want to trace the use of a specific term or phrase. Also, I have showed Accordance to several students here at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and while they all think it's pretty neat, they have all mentioned the same thing. It looks like it's mostly useful for English speakers. It would be nice to be able to add in some native Hebrew resources as well. 

 

Just a thought.

We have tried to get the Bar Ilan version but it is currently not available for licensing. If you know of another good etext, we will be happy to look into it.

Maybe Mossad HaRav Kook’s version.
Or I wonder if Sefaria would share some of their texts/licenses with you.
