Biblia Hebraica Quinta (Bundle of 7 Fascicles)

Retail: $337.30 / Accordance: $229.00

Read the article: Biblia Hebraica Quinta and the Making of Critical Editions of the Hebrew Bible by Richard D. Weis.

Seven fascicles of the Biblia Hebraica Quinta from the German Bible Society are now available in Accordance.

(Note: There is a free upgrade available to the combined 7-volume set that contains all 7 volumes in a single combined module. Users who own individual volumes who wish to upgrade to the combined 7-volume set should first upgrade to the BUNDLE of 7 Fascicles (this product) first and then process the free upgrade to the 7-volume set.)

This edition will succeed the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS) (1977). The aim is to provide an edition with a completely new critical apparatus to the Hebrew (Masoretic) text, accompanied by a commentary volume in which the most difficult cases are treated.

This edition is produced for serious students of the Hebrew Bible. It aims to provide them with a clear presentation of the surviving evidence of the text’s transmission that is relevant for translation and exegesis.

The current fascicles are edited by Adrian Schenker et al. This bundle contains these fascicles (each of which is also available for individual purchase):

In addition to a general BHQ Introduction, each volume contains the following associated modules:

  • Main text module
  • Parallel Apparatus and Masorah (magna and parva)
  • Commentary

Features include:

  • Diplomatic text of the Leningrad Codex, cited from new color photographs. As the oldest complete manuscript of the Hebrew Bible, it serves as the base text against which other witnesses are collated. This text is not morphologically tagged.
  • A single apparatus as well as Masorah magna and parva of the Leningrad Codex are included in parallel with the text.
  • Layout of poetic texts corresponds as closely as possible to Masoretic accentuation.
  • Indications of parallel texts are given.
  • Text critical cases are generated and noted in the apparatus when a pre-Tiberian witness arguably, but not necessarily, witnesses a Hebrew text that differs from the Tiberian text.
  • Two other Tiberian codices are collated for each book.
  • Qumran and Judean Desert fragments are collated.
  • All available pre-Tiberian witnesses for each textual case are noted.
  • A general introduction presents the edition, characterises the text and masorah of the base text, the particular use of resources, the relation of BHQ to BHS and previous editions etc.
  • Each book is also accompanied by a commentary.
