The presented below example text of the Book of Exodus 4,18–23 from the Hebrew Bible shows the manner of recording of the God’s Revelation, the manner used by the inspired writers about six centures before the birth of Christ. In the text there are also visible Arabic numerals and Latin letters, introduced by contemporary publisher.
It is worth noting that this Hebrew text is a basic source for exegetical studies, whose aim is the most faithful reading of the divine revelation. The importance of this task cannot be overestimated because translator–exegete has to transmit the words of God himself!
Is it necessary today to read a Hebrew text since we have good, widely accepted translations of the Bible in the native languages?
