Restored English Translation of Esther: Chapter 14

At LONG last, here is my Restored English Translation (RET) of Ester (Esther) chapter 14.  (So sorry at how sporadic my RET posts have become!)  As usual, it contains the Hebrew names, with a glossary of them afterward.  At the end is a list of where the Aleph Tavs occur, as they are no longer included … Continue reading Restored English Translation of Esther: Chapter 14

Restored English Translation of Esther: Chapter 12

Today I present my Restored English Translation (RET) of Ester (Esther) chapter 12.  As usual, it contains the Hebrew names, with a glossary of them at the end.  I have also chosen to include the Aleph/Tavs in the text itself, despite my skepticism of them (mainly because it's after 10:30 at night, and I just … Continue reading Restored English Translation of Esther: Chapter 12

Restored English Translation of Esther: Chapter 6
