    What Bible has a close Hebrew/Greek Translation

    I like the KJV of the bible ... but I want to know what Bible out there has a very close Hebrew/Greek/English interpretation out there?

    I want to read something very close to the ORIGINAL writtings.
    Where it might have the hebrew word with the english word right next to it ...

    Is there anything out there like this?

    If so can you post the link to a website or book .. like at amazon.com or something of that nature ..

    Thanks !!!

    For instance ... I know in
    Psalms 8: It says he made us a little lower than the Angels ..

    but when you read the hebrew word for angels in this context .. it should have said Elohim ... "he made us a little lower than the Elohim" .. not angels ...

    but I don't want to read my KJV and then run and read my Hebrew Concordance..... I want some combined together in one book ... but it translate the Original Hebrew and Greek ... but also gives me the REAL ENGLISH WORD.

    The NASB is about the closest you will get to that kind of translation...that and the original manuscripts themselves.

    Will this have the Hebrew writing inside too? With the correct Word?

    Young's Literal Translation is a very good resource for that purpose.

    It is available on www.biblegateway.com as one of the translations you can choose from.

    You need an interlinear bible. Here's a link to one on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Interlinear-Bi...1670803&sr=8-1

    Youngs Literal translation is the best for this. This is what I read every day, you can find it online at barnes and nobles.

    Trust me, you're much better off sticking with the King James and going to the concordance (try this free computer software, e-Sword, where you can just move your mouse over a word and get the full concordance definition).

    Modern translations of the Bible that seek formal equivalence include the New American Standard Bible, the English Standard Version (the King James Version also seeks formal equivalence, albeit to 17th-century English) and Green's Literal Translation.

    Unfortunately there are really no good translations of the Bible into the English language.

    In English, no attempt has ever really been made to convey the styles of the originals, so everything ends up in a uniform liturgical tone which makes all the books sound more or less the same (which they absolutely are not stylistically).

    The English-language Bibles have all the style and passion of smug and comfortable English aristocrat.

    If you know German on the other hand, then you could try Buber's translation of the OT. This is a very surprising translation as the OT becomes exciting with heights of passion and depths of suffering, that one would never suspect lurked there from the boring English translations.

    Luther's OT is quite good stylistically as well (German again).

    Stylistically, the KJV turned the Bible into a uniform mess of liturgical renaissance poetry, and things have gotten worse from there.

    At the top RH side of every page of the MB is a Bible Search you can read all the different translations from here, I personally enjoy the WEB World English Bible

    Hope is a seed
    God plants in our hearts
    to remind us
    there are better things ahead.

    New Jerusalem Bible-Readers Edition is a great translation

    it keeps the Hebrew words like Yahweh, Sheol, El Shaddai....

    it's the Catholic canon (contains the Apocrypha), but do not worry, there is no Catholic doctrine really in it

    basically just the text and it has hundreds of bold headings which tell you what you are about to read and these are very specific and great!

    Yeah, except that that's not a Hebrew word...

    I know this is your opinion but why would you say KJV?
