These links point to my readings of the Hebrew Bible. They are generally in both Hebrew and English, side by side. There may also be some tables of recurring words, or snippets of the music derived from the accents(te'amim) and comment on the text. I put each reading through a computer-aided process including a strict set of concordance rules that evolve as I read more of the Hebrew Bible. You can see the essence of the process in a poster here.

Once a chapter has gone 'through the process', it continues to be tested against all past and future chapters. If there is no link below, then the chapter has not been processed yet. If the book title is still in caps then there is no chapter processed for that book yet. If the book title is in Bold then there is a post or information in printed form for every chapter and all the music in XML is in the shared location here. Current work (August 2015) is on Job, Qohelet, Proverbs and 1 Samuel (and whatever else turns up).

Psalms

Most of the Psalms posts (2010-2012) and their companion comments have been reverted to draft. 

My work here from 2006 to 2013 is in the book, Seeing the Psalter (2013). The posts were too out of date to update though there are a few links still active below. The book is a joy to enable study of the ancient poetry in Hebrew with a close English translation and with over 300 tables to show word relationships within and between psalms. The book includes a full index of themes, names, and scripture cited and English-Hebrew and Hebrew-English glossaries for every word root that occurs in the Psalms. My current work uses, extends and refines this complete two-way glossary.
