I'd like to see these in Accordance, both the texts and Alter's notes. I used his Genesis translation when I taught that book in Sunday School a couple of years ago, and I'm using his Psalms for an upcoming series on that book. Both the translations and the notes are excellent. The translations retain the style and flavor of the Hebrew.

Was about to start a thread and found this one! What level of interest might there be in seeing Alter's work in Accordance? At least two of us!
