  1. I have what’s usually referred to as a tri-linear, or inter-linear Bible. It has three bound lines of text within it’s pages: Hebrew; a word-for-word translation of the Hebrew into English; and a transliteration of the Hebrew into English. For the New Testment, it’s of course Greek and English.

    This allows you to make your own judgements based on language. You would be suprised how a twenty line passage in this Bible is shaved down to maybe ten lines in the King James version.
