The first volume 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.

First published 500 years ago as the "Rabbinic Bible," the biblical commentaries known as the 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 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.

Endorsements:
“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

“The importance of this volume cannot be overestimated -- for the first time, we have a responsible translation of the miqra'ot gedolot...that is accessible to those without great facility in Hebrew.” – jbooks.com
