Old Testament



4:1(3:19) כי הנה היום בא בער כתנור והיו כל זדים וכל עשׂה רשׁעה קשׁ ולהט אתם היום הבא אמר יהוה צבאות אשׁר לא יעזב להם שׁרשׁ וענף׃
4:2(3:20) וזרחה לכם יראי שׁמי שׁמשׁ צדקה ומרפא בכנפיה ויצאתם ופשׁתם כעגלי מרבק׃
4:3(3:21) ועסותם רשׁעים כי יהיו אפר תחת כפות רגליכם ביום אשׁר אני עשׂה אמר יהוה צבאות׃
4:4(3:22) זכרו תורת משׁה עבדי אשׁר צויתי אותו בחרב על כל ישׂראל חקים ומשׁפטים׃
4:5(3:23) הנה אנכי שׁלח לכם את אליה הנביא לפני בוא יום יהוה הגדול והנורא׃
4:6(3:24) והשׁיב לב אבות על בנים ולב בנים על אבותם פן אבוא והכיתי את הארץ חרם׃
Masoretic Text 1524

Masoretic Text 1524

The Hebrew text of the Old Testament is called the Masoretic Text because in its present form it is based upon the Masora—the Hebrew, textual tradition of the Jewish scholars known as the Masoretes (or Masorites). The Masoretes were rabbis who made it their special work to correct the faults that had crept into the text of the Old Testament during the Babylonian captivity, and to prevent, for the future, its being corrupted by any alteration. They first separated the apocryphal from the canonical books, and divided the latter into twenty-two books, being the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet. Then they divided each book into sections and verses.

There is a great difference of opinion as to when the Masoretic Text was written, but it was probably accomplished in the 10th -11th century. Several editions existed, varying considerably, but the received and authoritative text is that of Jacob ben-chayim ibn Adonijah, who carefully sifted and arranged the previous works on the subject. It was published in 1524.
