New Version - Targum on the Song of Songs

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

BibleWorks user Jay Palmer continues his work in the Targums with yet another addition. This time he brings us the Targum of Song of Songs. Here are his words describing the version:

The following English Language translation of the Song of Songs Targum was compiled by the scholar Adam Clarke and is found within his six-volume commentary on the entire bible. Notably, this work provides the Aramaic expansions and interpolations that the Song of Songs Targum made upon the canonical Song of Solomon.  This text can be compared with the TAR/ Comprehensive Aramaic Lexicon database within BibleWorks and is helpful for those who desire to study the Song of Songs Targum.  Clarke’s footnotes, which often prove to be very informative, are available for viewing within the BW Analysis Window.

In addition- Adam Clarke was a Christian scholar who, while providing helpful commentary, demonstrates an antagonism towards Judaism within some portions of his work.

Clarke’s six-volume commentary is found at various websites and is public domain.

Compiled for the BibleWorks community by Jay Palmer.

And when the King Messiah shall be revealed unto the congregation of Israel, the children of Israel shall say unto him, Be thou with us for a brother, and let us go up to Jerusalem…  (SOL 8:1 TSS)

New Version - Targum Isaiah English Translation

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

Jay Palmer has been gracious enough to provide to the BibleWorks community a number of great resources from the Targumim and other Hebrew cognate literature. Here is a brief description of his work on this version.

The Chaldee Paraphrase on the Prophet Isaiah

Translated by Rev. C. W. H. Pauli,
Presbyter

London: London Society’s House, 16, Lincoln’s Inn Fields.
1871

The following English Language translation of the Isaiah Targum of Jonathan was compiled by Rev. C. W. H. Pauli for the London Society for Promoting Christianity among the Jews in 1871. Notably, this work, at times, displays a Christian tone. However, while the text can be compared with the TAR/ Comprehensive Aramaic Lexicon database within BibleWorks, Pauli’s edition is helpful for those who desire to study the Isaiah Targum.

Pauli’s footnotes, which at times are helpful, are available for viewing within the BW Analysis Window.*

This edition of the Isaiah Targum of Jonathan is found at various websites and is public domain.

Thanks for the work Jay!

Algers F. Johns Aramaic Vocab File

Monday, February 25th, 2008

Jackson Atkins of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary has submitted an Aramaic vocabulary file that is keyed to A Short Grammar of Biblical Aramaic by Alger F. Johns. Jackson describes the file:

Johns lists some verbs in several chapters but due to technical limitations I have only included them in the first chapter where they appear. I have retained BibleWorks verbal vowel pointing where a qamets appears under the first consonant instead of shewah. I have placed Johns’ noun categories in the usage column following the information provided by BibleWorks and enclosed in parentheses. When you load the file, go to the tools drop down menu and select “filter” then check the “Include Aramaic” box. I made this file for a class so speed was imperative. Thus, if you find any mistakes please let me know on the BibleWorks official message board.

PS: I am sorry for my delinquency in catching up with the BW blog files lately. I hope to get on it soon!
