My ignorance is going to show through here because I'm learning. So I am hoping someone with some education in this regard might be willing to educate me a little bit on citing Targums from Accordance.

 

The modules available include, for instance, Targums Onkelos, Jonathan, and the Writings in a single module (TARG-T). How can I know which of the three to cite for someone who will go to the actual original language Targum? Unless I'm misunderstanding something, I currently must cite all three (Tg. Onq., Neb., Ket.) because there is nothing in the module to indicate which one to reference specifically.

 

Blessings,

Jeff

That is a great question- It mainly depends on which book of the Bible you are in. I am no expert on the Targumim but I would refer you to Safari for deeper research:

https://www.sefaria.org

 

Here is the direct link to the texts they carry: https://www.sefaria.org/texts

Wow! Great website. I will bookmark and use it. Unfortunately, though, it seems it has everything except Targums.

Targums are here: https://www.sefaria....s/Tanakh/Targum


Note the break downs too of which Targum covers what selections- That should point you in the right direction with the Accordance module on individual texts

Perfect! Thanks! I'm still hoping someone with Accordance will jump in with how this can be done within the platform.
