"Also the sons of the foreigner who join themselves to YHWH, to serve Him, and to love the Name of YHWH, to be His servants, all who guard the Shabbath, and not profane it, and hold fast to My Covenant - them I shall bring to My qodesh mountain, and let them rejoice in My house of prayer." (Yeshayahu [Isa] 56:6-7)THE FATHER & SON'S NAMES ARE IN PALEO HEBREW The HalleluYah Scriptures uses the ancient — sometimes called paleo Hebrew letter forms for the Father's Name and is the only version that we know of that does this — the form which is most likely used by the Father when He wrote His Name on the Ten Commandments in stone. The use of Paleo Hebrew in this way distinguishes the Name above all Names and follows other historical texts in that even though the Dead Sea Scrolls are written in the modern Hebrew script, the Name of the Almighty - the Tetragrammaton - appears in paleo Hebrew... ...and the Septuagint written in Greek uses the paleo Hebrew for the Tetragrammaton in many texts. To maintain consistency and again, to distinguish the Name of Ha'Mashiach, the same form of paleo Hebrew is used in the written form of the Name of the Son.
PAGAN WORDS AND TITLES - A GLOSSARY IS INCLUDED IN THE BACK OF THE HALLELUYAH SCRIPTURES.HalleluYah Scriptures also takes very seriously the Torah Commands not to mention the names of false mighty ones especially when it pertains to the Father, His Son and His people... This has taken years of research as it is not always obvious that English words are derived from pagan deities. Much diligent research has been done into assuring that there are no pagan words used to describe our wonderful Father and His Son. All paganism and names of false gods that have traditionally been used in translation when pertaining to the the Father, His Son and His people have been avoided, and in many cases retain a Hebrew transliteration if the word is linked to paganism. This is something important to the Father as he does not want to share His Name with pagan false gods. The Command to avoid names of false gods is echoed 3 times in Scripture:
''And in all that I have said to you take heed. And make no mention of the name of other mighty ones, let it not be heard from your mouth.” (Shemoth [Exo] 23:13)
“...And make no mention of the name of their mighty ones, nor swear by, nor serve them nor bow down to them.” (Yahoshua [Jos] 23:7)
The sorrows of those who run after another one are increased; I would not pour out their drink offerings of blood, Nor take up their names on my lips.” (Tehillim [Psa] 16:4)Although the English language is replete with words derived from pagan deities, this translation has attempted to remove most, if not all of these words when attributed to the Almighty, His Son or His people. In a number of cases this requires the restoration of a number of Hebrew terms that have no comparison in English eg:
SET - according to wikipedia is "a god of the desert, storms, and foreigners in ancient Egyptian religion. In later mythology he is also the god of darkness and chaos." (wikipedia)
While the majority of translations use the term “Holy” to describe the Almighty etc. which is linked with the pagan Greek god Helios and halos (picture below.) Other restored Name versions and other translations use the term “set-apart.” This however, is possibly worse than “holy” in that it is the name of an Egyptian deity (picture above) recognized and somewhat honored even to this day! HalleluYah Scriptures chose to retain the Hebrew term “qodesh” (for we are qodesh and not Set apart from Him), and removed all occurrences of the word “set” in obedience to the Word (Exo 23:13, Jos 23:7, Psa 16:4). eg.
Most other restored Name Scriptures use the following: HalleluYah Scriptures words are on the left.
qodesh vs set-apart* Qadosh One vs Set-apart One* qodeshi vs set-apart one* qodeshim vs set-apart ones* qodeshah vs set apartness* put vs set* depart vs set* out lit vs set* (on fire)
To distinguish the Dwelling Places of Yah and and again to avoid paganism HalleluYah Scriptures rendered the following in Hebrew.
SUN - (picture below) Old English sunne, from Proto-Germanic *sunnon (cf. Old Norse, Old Saxon, Old High German sunna, Middle Dutch sonne, Dutch zon, German Sonne, Gothic sunno), from PIE *s(u)wen- (cf. Avestan xueng "sun," Old Irish fur-sunnud "lighting up"), alternative form of root *saewel- "to shine, sun" (see Sol). (etymonline.com)
The Sun has been worshipped as a god for millenia and because a phonetic parallel was recognized, "Son" was rendered in Hebrew as Beyn. The Scripture in Malachi was translated as “Brilliance.” (Heb. Shemesh)RUACH vs. SPIRIT 1.a. The vital principle or animating force within living beings. b. Incorporeal consciousness. 2. The soul, considered as departing from the body of a person at death. 3. Spirit The Holy Spirit. 4. A supernatural being, as: a. An angel or a demon. b. A being inhabiting or embodying a particular place, object, or natural phenomenon. c. A fairy or sprite. 5.a. The part of a human associated with the mind, will, and feelings: Though unable to join us today, they are with us in spirit. b. The essential nature of a person or group. 6. A person as characterized by a stated quality: He is a proud spirit. 7.a. An inclination or tendency of a specified kind: Her actions show a generous spirit. b. A causative, activating, or essential principle: The couple's engagement was announced in a joyous spirit. 8. spirits A mood or an emotional state: The guests were in high spirits. His sour spirits put a damper on the gathering. 9. A particular mood or an emotional state characterized by vigor and animation: sang with spirit. 10. Strong loyalty or dedication: team spirit. 11. The predominant mood of an occasion or a period: "The spirit of 1776 is not dead" (Thomas Jefferson). 12. The actual though unstated sense or significance of something: the spirit of the law. 13. An alcohol solution of an essential or volatile substance. Often used in the plural with a singular verb. 14. spirits An alcoholic beverage, especially distilled liquor. Due to the fact that the term “spirit” in English carries so many confusing possibilities from ghosts to alcohol, HalleluYah Scriptures renders the Spirit of Yah in it's Hebrew form Ruaḥ or Ruaḥ ha'Qodesh. HalleluYah Scriptures Uses The Words On The Left Ruaḥ ha'Qodesh vs Set-apart Spirit* Ruaḥ vs Spirit Ruaḥoth vs Spirits To maintain the Hebrew origin of many words borrowed from the Greek texts, HalleluYah Scriptures used the Hebrew words in the following. HalleluYah Scriptures Uses The Words On The Left Mashiaḥ vs Messiah Mashiaḥiyim vs Messianic talmidim vs taught ones Gĕy-Hinnom vs Gehenna Shabbath vs Sabbath Shabbathoth vs SabbatHalleluYah Scriptures Because the title Master is linked etymologically with the goddess Maia through the common root word "Meg" the original Hebrew form of Adonai used in the Hebrew scrolls is used as the title for the Almighty. Some people teach that Adon is a pagan word based on the greek false god Adonis. But the Hebrew is the original form where as Adonis is just a copy used for wicked means. It does not mean the word Adonai is pagan. Aḏon / Aḏonai vs Master*
MASTER - late Old English mזgester "one having control or authority," from Latin magister (n.) "chief, head, director, teacher" (source of Old French maistre, French maמtre, Spanish and Italian maestro, Portuguese mestre, Dutch meester, German Meister), contrastive adjective ("he who is greater") from magis (adv.) "more," from PIE *mag-yos-, comparative of root *meg- "great" (see mickle).
MAIA Roman goddess of fertility, Latin Maia, literally "she who brings increase," related to magnus "great" (see magnate). Maia, one of the Pleiades (picture above), is from Greek Maia daughter of Atlas, mother of Hermes, literally "mother, good mother, dame; foster-mother, nurse, midwife," said by Watkins to be from infant babbling (see mamma).
MAGNATE - mid-15c., "great man, noble, man of wealth," from Late Latin magnates, plural of magnas "great person, nobleman," from Latin magnus "great, large, big" (of size), "abundant" (of quantity), "great, considerable" (of value), "strong, powerful" (of force); of persons, "elder, aged," also, figuratively, "great, mighty, grand, important," from PIE *mag-no-, from root *meg- "great" (cf. Sanskrit maha-, mahat- "great;" Greek megas, fem. megale "great, large;" Gothic mikils, Old English micel "great, big, many;" see mickle). (etymonline.com)Again, to retain the Hebrew origin of the qodesh Moedim (Appointed Times/Festivals) HalleluYah Scriptures rendered these Festivals in Hebrew. HalleluYah Scriptures Uses The Words On The Left Pesaḥ vs Passover Matstsoth vs Unleavened Bread Shaḇuoth vs Weeks Yom Teruah vs Trumpets Yom Kippurim vs Atonement Sukkoth vs Booths Yoḇĕl vs Jubilee LIFE vs. HAI Because of the pagan connection to the Norse myth of Lif (picture above), when Life was used in connection with eternal Life rather than physical life, HalleluYah Scriptures selectively renders it in Hebrew. HalleluYah Scriptures Uses The Words On The Left Ḥai / ḥai vs Life* LIFE - In Norse mythology, Líf (identical with the Old Norse feminine noun meaning "life, the life of the body") and Lífþrasir (Old Norse masculine name from líf and þrasir. Lexicon Poëticum defines this name as "Livæ amator, vitæ amans, vitæ cupidus", "Líf's lover, lover of life, zest for life") - female and male respectively - are two humans who are foretold to survive the events of Ragnarök by hiding in a wood called Hoddmímis holt, and after the flames have abated, to repopulate the newly risen and fertile world. (wikipedia) SHAMAYIM vs. HEAVEN/S* Due to the pagan connection and misconception of heaven, HalleluYah Scriptures renders this in Hebrew. HEAVEN - O.E. heofon "home of God," earlier "sky, firmament," probably from P.Gmc. *hibin-, dissimilated from *himin- (cf. Low Ger. heben, O.N. himinn, Goth. himins, O.Fris. himul, Du. hemel, Ger. Himmel "heaven, sky"), perhaps from PIE base *kem-/*kam- "to cover" (cf. chemise). [Watkins derives it elaborately from PIE *ak- "sharp" via *akman- "stone, sharp stone," then "stony vault of heaven"]. Plural use in sense of "sky" is probably from Ptolemaic theory of space composed of many spheres, but it also formerly was used in the same sense as the singular in Biblical language, as a translation of Hebrew plural shamayim. Heaven-sent (adj.) attested from 1640s. (etymonline.com) PRIEST vs. KOHEN Because a “priest” is undefinable in one religion and carries so many connotations, it was also rendered in Hebrew. HalleluYah Scriptures Uses The Words On The Left kohen vs priest* kohenim vs priests* kehunnah vs priesthood* naḇi vs prophet* neḇi'im vs prophets* PRIEST - Old English preost probably shortened from the older Germanic form represented by Old Saxon and Old High German prestar, Old Frisian prestere, all from Vulgar Latin *prester "priest," from Late Latin presbyter "presbyter, elder," from Greek presbyteros. (etymonline.com) Priests and priestesses have existed since the earliest of times and in the simplest societies. They exist in all or some branches of Judaism, Christianity, Shintoism, Hinduism and many other religions. They are generally regarded as having positive contact with the deity or deities of the religion to which they subscribe, often interpreting the meaning of events and performing the rituals of the religion. Priests are leaders to whom other believers will often turn for advice on spiritual matters. (wikipedia.org) PROPHET vs. NABI A prophecy is also described in the dictionary as a message from the gods, therefore all forms in HalleluYah Scriptures are rendered in Hebrew. HalleluYah Scriptures Uses The Words On The Left neḇuah vs prophecy* neḇuoth vs prophecies* naḇa vs prophesy* / prophesying* naḇu vs prophesied* neḇiyah vs prophetess* PROPHECY - "function of a prophet," from Old French profecie (12c. Modern French prophétie) and directly from Late Latin prophetia (source also of Spanish profecia, Italian profezia), from Greek propheteia "gift of interpreting the will of the gods."(wikipedia.org) BLESS/BLESSED vs. BARAK The verb “bless” is based on the pagan sprinkling of blood and was therefore rendered in Hebrew. HalleluYah Scriptures Uses The Words On The Left baraḵ vs bless* baruḵ vs blessed* beraḵah vs blessing* bireḵoth vs blessings* BLESS - O.E. bletsian, bledsian, Northumbrian bloedsian "to consecrate, make holy, give thanks," from P.Gmc. *blothisojan "mark with blood," from *blotham "blood" (see blood). Originally a blood sprinkling on pagan altars. This word was chosen in O.E. bibles to translate L. benedicere and Gk. eulogein, both of which have a ground sense of "to speak well of, to praise," but were used in Scripture to translate Heb. brk "to bend (the knee), worship, praise, invoke blessings." (etymonline.com) Because the translation is called HalleluYah Scriptures it only makes sense to render all praise to Yah as HalleluYah! HalleluYah Scriptures Uses The Words On The Left Hallelu-Yah vs Praise Yah An explanation of these new terms is found in the glossary of HalleluYah Scriptures. All those involved in this project are in agreement that our Creator is so qodesh that it would be blasphemous to use words derived from pagan deities in an attempt to honor Him. We have received hundreds of emails from people who are either dislexic or have a reading disability yet they can pick up the HalleluYah Scriptures and read them with no problems. They have commented that the HalleluYah Scriptures are easy to read and they even understand the Hebrew words. This can only be the anointing from the Father on the HalleluYah Scriptures as all praise belongs to Him and His Son. NO ADDED FOOT NOTES OR MAN'S DOCTRINES. Many translations boast of their "study notes" and massive collection of footnotes etc. yet one of the distinguishing features of HalleluYah Scriptures is that they have absolutely no added footnotes, doctrinal explanatory notes, cross-references or supposed prophetic fulfillment markings within the translation. HalleluYah Scriptures aims to be simply the Word of Elohim alone with none of these so-called 'helps', and as mentioned in the introduction, all these things are left to the Ruaḥ of Yah to reveal to the reader: "But the anointing which you have received from Him stays in you, and you have no need that anyone should teach you. But as the same anointing teaches you concerning all, and is true, and is no falsehood, and even as it has taught you, you stay in Him." (1 Yoḥanan [1Jn] 2:27) "And we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Ruacḥ that is from Elohim, in order to know what Elohim has favourably given us, which we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Ruacḥ ha'Qodesh teaches, comparing spiritual with spiritual." (1 Corinthians 2:13) And again, adding footnotes etc. is in conflict with the Word: "Do not add to the Word which I command you, and do not take away from it" (Deuteronomy 4:2) The names of individuals and places throughout the HalleluYah Scriptures have been transliterated phonetically to match the Hebrew pronunciation rather than the traditional: i.e. Yeshayahu (Isaiah), Dawiḏ (David), Yahoshua (Joshua). Although Masoretic vowel pointing designates “Yeh” in many names for yod, hay (the Name of Yah) it was felt that this was removing the obvious reference to Yah in the meaning of many names, therefore restored to Yah. Yahuḏah / Yahuḏim vs Yehudah Yah... vs Yeh... (any names) While the other restored Name translations rendered a handful of places in Hebrew as opposed to the traditional Anglocized version, HalleluYah Scriptures restored most, if not all names to their Hebrew origin and in some cases reveals the trace back through the genealogies of individuals in Scripture. Iḇri/m vs Heḇrew/s Yawan / Yawanite vs Greece / Greek (The son of Yepheth Gen 10:2) Paras vs Persia Kasdim / Kasdites vs Chaldea / Chaldeans (Keseḏ, one of the nephews of Aḇraham) Pelesheth vs Philistia Greek names have also been transliterated rather than perpetuating the incorrect traditional names as do other restored Name versions. (eg: Hĕrodĕs vs Herod, Kaisar vs Caesar, Phĕlix vs Felix, Yason vs Jason, etc.) LARGE NUMBER OF ITALICIZED WORDS REMOVED. This aims to be a literal translation of the Scriptures in English but nearly all translations (including all Restored Name versions) add italicized words to the text in the attempt to 'clarify' certain portions causing much confusion and damage with the addition of these italicized words and in many cases goes against Deut 4:2 not to add to the Word. Although there are a few situations where the context or root word may be translated with an 'added' word, HalleluYah Scriptures chose to remove as many as physically possible while maintaining a coherent translation. Space does not permit the number of italicized words that were removed and/or reworded, but amounts to well over 80% from the total of added words. In many cases this required re-writing an entire verse to conform with the original language and this was not an easy job taking many months. The HalleluYah Scriptures translation team are working on the other 20% of added words and will make the changes in following print runs when completed.
HalleluYah Scriptures has never removed any words other than removing the Italicized words, which were added by man over many years.In light of evidence from the Dead Sea Scrolls HalleluYah Scriptures has corrected many other texts. The HalleluYah Scriptures translation team work full time on the project and are learning Aramaic to bring the Renewed Covenant even closer to the Hebrew for the Father's people. The translation team work near daily on the HalleluYah Scriptures translation to bring it purer and closer to the Hebrew in English than any other version for the Father's people to enjoy. The Greek text only uses one word Theos in reference to Yah yet not all of these ought to be simple translated as “Elohim” or “Ĕl” especially when they are quotations from the Tanakh. A number of times where the text clearly refers to YHWH, “Elohim” was rendered as “YHWH" We have not been given a spirit of fear - 2 Tim 1:7, Rom 8:15, 1Jn 4:18, etc. yet many translations translate the Hebrew term “yarĕ” as “fear.” HalleluYah Scriptures translates this as “reverence” in many places. "The reverence of YHWH is the beginning of knowledge." vs "The fear of YHWH is the beginning of knowledge" ORDER OF BOOKS The order of Books in the First Covenant has followed that of the traditional Hebraic TaNaḴ and the order of the Renewed Covenant has been arranged chronologically giving better insight to the letters of Sha’ul (Paul) in their historical context. Some confusion is caused by the letters of Sha'ul, yet much of this is clarified by simply reading them in the order they were written to the assemblies, therefore another distinguishing feature of HalleluYah Scriptures is that the Renewed Covenant is ordered chronologically. No other version has the Books in the order they were written. All other translations including Restored Name versions follow the Catholic order of the Renewed Covenant books that is, large to small. CAPITALIZED WORDS Many translations capitalize words that pertain to the Father and His Law to distinguish the difference between His Law and laws of the world, yet fail to distinguish all the different synonyms for Yah's Torah. All words referring to the Torah/Law in HalleluYah Scriptures (eg. Law, Right-Rulings, Commands, Words, Witnesses, Orders, Way, etc) have been capitalized. A number of capitals for the Father and His Son are left in lower case in many restored Name versions. MEASUREMENTS All measurements given in Scripture are only relevant in respect to the understanding of the original language and therefore rendered in HalleluYah Scriptures in their original language with the relevant modern equivalent in the Glossary. In particular, HalleluYah Scriptures found no basis for the use of the term “cubit” other than tradition and rendered it in Hebrew, ammah. No other version has these changes. Weights and Measures – qesitah, gĕrah, beqa, pim, sheqel, mina, kiḵar, talanton, litra. Length and Distances – etsba, tophaḥ, zereth, ammah, ammah, qanĕh, pĕḵus, fathom, stadion, miliyon. Dry Measures – qab, omer, se’ah, ĕphah, letheḵ, kor, homer. Liquid Measures – log, hin, bath, ḥomer, metrĕtĕs. TRANSLATION TEAM HalleluYah Scriptures translation team works constantly on the HalleluYah Scriptures especially reviewing the Greek and Aramaic texts to gain a better understanding of the Renewed Covenant. Many may not understand the work that goes into a translation or the time that goes into making it as accurate as possible. A vision was given by the Father through His Son for this very anointed book. The HalleluYah Scriptures is the superior version and there is none like it as it has been completed according to what the Father wanted and what His Law states. This is all praise to the Father and His Son. HalleluYah Scriptures would not dare say that the Father's Word belonged to any man or group. It is the Father's and the Father alone that owns His Word. Those that love His truth can see this clearly. Never support those that sell the Father's Word or put a price on the Fathers head (Word) and lay claim to ownership. This is in direct violation to His Law and James 3vs14-16.
"But if you have bitter jealousy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast against and lie against the truth. This is not the wisdom coming down from above, but it is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where jealousy and self-seeking are, there is confusion and every foul deed." (Ya'aqob [James] 3:16)Why is it that men attempt to take ownership of the Word of Yah? The One True Author of the Scriptures. Honestly, who do these people think they are by copyrighting and putting their name to a translation that was never theirs in the first place? There are many translators, organizations and Institutes that make a big deal about their copyright and plagiarism of what they deem as ‘their’ translation, when in fact they are the thieves who have stolen from the One who gave it freely and commanded it to be given freely.
“You have received without paying, give without being paid.” — Matt 10:8Every Word that was written by the Patriarchs, Prophets and Apostles was originally given to them by the Father Himself and not one of them would ever claim they were the owners of the Word let alone try and charge money and profit from it. It is our opinion, that to make money on the Word of YHWH, is by definition: profiteering.
“But if a man is righteous and shall do right-ruling and righteousness… if he does not lend on interest or take increase, turns back his hand from unrighteousness, executes right-ruling in truth between man and man, if he walks in My Laws, and he has guarded My Right-Rulings in truth – he is righteous, he shall certainly live!” declares the Master . - Ezekiel 18:5-9The word 'take increase' translated from the Hebrew 'tarbith' means: The Mashiach confirmed this when He said:
"You have received without paying, give without being paid." (Mattithyahu [Mat] 10:8)This is echoed from the Father's Word.
"And when your brother becomes poor, and his hand has failed with you, then you shall sustain him, and he shall live with you, like a stranger or a sojourner. Take no interest from him, or profit, but you shall fear your Elohim, and your brother shall live with you. Do not lend him your silver on interest, and do not lend him your food for profit." - Leviticus 25:35-37WHAT IS PLAGIARISM? Plagiarism - "closely imitating the language and thoughts of another author." Even all other versions state:
"All Scripture is breathed by Elohim and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for setting straight, for instruction in righteousness..." (2 Tim 3:16)The Ownership and Authorship of every Word, Verse, and Chapter in the Scriptures belongs to the Father and His Son" (Yahshua is the Word)
If we read John 12:49 carefully, even our own Messiah and Saviour YAHSHUA, who is the "Word" Himself, did NOT claim that the Words He has spoken/instructed while He was here on earth belonged to Him, but He said they are from His Father YHWH!!!Let he who is without plagiarism cast the first stone! All translations share the same characters, details, storyline, books, book names, sequence of events, place names, chapter breaks, verse numbers, theme, message and overall content. Some versions are more similar than others, whereas the HalleluYah Scriptures are significantly different in many cases to all other restored Name versions and there is no other version like it nor has there been, and this is all praise to the Father and His Son. Regardless, all versions use the same dictionaries of words to portray the same message originated by the Creator, Yah. ONE SOURCE All English Bibles are the same in essence, because they were all translated from one Source, the only differences being minor variations of word choice. It has been around since the late 14th century in English. It is about word choices. There are many changes in the HalleluYah Scriptures that we have dated and noted so when others copy these changes we are aware of them so that they cannot lay claim to these changes that belong to the Father and copyright and sell them. The HalleluYah Scriptures is the Father's works and no man’s. Any man that takes credit or uses their names to credit themselves for His Word is truly stealing honor, esteem and praise from the Father who does all good things. This is self seeking and is warned against in the Word.
"But if you have bitter jealousy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast against and lie against the truth. This is not the wisdom coming down from above, but it is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where jealousy and self-seeking are, there is confusion and every foul deed." (Ya'aqob [James] 3:16)This is why His Name appears boldly in its rightful place on the cover of the HalleluYah Scriptures and not only that but the title itself HalleluYah is the imperative call to praise Yah. Every time one holds this translation and reads the cover they are giving praise to the Almighty Yah for His Word, this is what is important. The name of the HalleluYah Scriptures was given by the Ruach and was what the Father wanted His pure Word called, so that when people see it and say, "HalleluYah Scriptures" they are praising Him. No other version has the true author on the front of the cover. We are commanded not to sell His Word, but to give freely to those in desperate need who do not have a copy of the Father's Word and have no means or options of affording. Those that sell the Word will continue to put out misinformation and try and discredit this urgent and important project which is the most anointed version of the Word. It is about money and profits and both Yahushua and Sha'ul gave warnings that wolves will come in and destroy and others for greedy gain.
"For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves shall come in among you, not sparing the flock." Acts 20:29Shame on those that falsely accuse the HalleluYah Scriptures. Dear brother and sisters, those that sell His Word and those that align themselves with those that sell the Father's Word will lie and attempt to deceive even the elect if possible. By their fruits you shall know them. HalleluYah Scriptures is His only pure Word and those serving will be hated and lied about, as were many who tried to get the Father's word out to believers in English. John Wycliffe, John Huss and many others were tortured and killed for bringing the Word to the world and we know the same may happen to us one day. We have counted the cost and put our hands to the plow and will not look back until the Father puts a stop to the HalleluYah Scriptures project. We are not surprised at all if hatred and false witnesses rise up against this project as it happened to our Savior, and we, like the tamidim (disciples), count it all joy and honor to serve the Father and will willing lay down our lives for His Word. The translators of the HalleluYah Scriptures, the founding members, who have been with the project over 10 years work full time on the HalleluYah Scriptures project as do a number of other volunteers, and live a basic life as directed by the Father, wanting nothing but to get the Father's Word out to those in desperate need and who cannot afford to pay for His Word. The Father's Ruach hand picked the team and gave them the vision for the project and some will try and lay claim to that vision by promoting their names. This is not of the Father or His Word as it is not about names, it is about His Name and His Son's Name and their Word.
"Baruḵ are those persecuted for righteousness' sake, because theirs is the reign of the shamayim. Baruḵ are you when they reproach and persecute you, and falsely say every wicked word against you, for My sake. Rejoice and be glad, because your reward in the shamayim is great. For in this way they persecuted the neḇi'im who were before you." (Matthew 5:10-12)Elsewhere you will pay $25 to $75 for a soft-covered restored Name version that is inferior, yet this kind of donation can help not only yourself but 2 to 8 others in desperate need when given to the HalleluYah Scriptures project. You not only help yourself but you help so many others to receive freely who cannot otherwise afford. It is sensible to donate in this way - to help others in need rather than to fill the pockets of the profiteers. You will be receiving a version that is the purest and closer to the Hebrew than any other version and helping others. There are no profits as all donations (unless specified) go to the HS project go to printing and shipping only. It is impossible for us to help everyone that asks and we do have to be giving to the poor as commanded. To those that cannot afford and have no means of affording and have no copy of the Father's Word. HalleluYah Scriptures does not have unlimited stock so has to be prayerful with each order.
"When there is a poor man with you, one of your brothers, within any of the gates in your land which YHWH your Elohim is giving you, do not harden your heart nor shut your hand from your poor brother." (Deut 15:7)
FREE TO THOSE IN NEED SUPPORTED BY THOSE WHO CAN AFFORD.One of the primary reasons for HalleluYah Scriptures is to be free to those who cannot afford nor have options to afford, supported by those who can afford, unlike all other restored Name versions which as a whole are sold for a profit in opposition to the Word which commands not to sell for profit. All extra funds that are donated to the HalleluYah Scriptures goes toward printing and shipping. The more donations we receive, the more we can print and ship.
"And when your brother becomes poor, and his hand has failed with you, then you shall sustain him, and he shall live with you, like a stranger or a sojourner. Take no interest from him, or profit, but you shall fear your Elohim, and your brother shall live with you." (Wayyiqra [Lev] 25:35)These are the people whom the HalleluYah Scriptures are for... For those who cannot afford His Word, those who have never seen nor owned a copy nor have any means to afford His qodesh Word.
"See, all beings are Mine, the being of the father as well as the being of the son is Mine. The being that is sinning shall die. But if a man is righteous and shall do right-ruling and righteousness... If he does not lend on interest or take increase, turns back his hand from unrighteousness, executes right-ruling in truth between man and man, if he walks in My laws, and he has guarded My right-rulings in truth – he is righteous, he shall certainly live!” declares the Adon YHWH. If he has lent on interest or taken increase – shall he live? He shall not live! If he has done any of these abominations, he shall certainly die, his blood is upon him." (Yehezqel [Eze] 18:4-13)Most of the soft-covered editions of the HalleluYah Scriptures go out freely and are going to those who have never seen nor owned a copy and cannot genuinely afford a copy - prisoners, homeless, those in 3rd world countries, new believers and those who are genuinely poor in the western world - All supported by those that can afford. We have a good amount of stock in many countries and a number of countries cover different areas so that the workload is spread out, this way we reach even more of those in need around the world. We have had a large number of emails from people who have taken the HalleluYah Scriptures to get them checked out without our knowledge. A brother took them to Jerusalem University to have them scrutinized and it was reported to him that the HalleluYah Scriptures was the purest and closer to the Hebrew than any other English version they have seen! A large number of people have taken them to Hebrew learned men of His Word and they have made similar comments.
The HalleluYah Scriptures is printed on wood free paper which is good for the environment so no trees were used to print the HalleluYah Scriptures.There is no greater works done in English (and soon to be Spanish) that this world has ever seen. There is nothing greater than His Word. The Spanish HalleluYah Scriptures team is working hard to complete the first purest Spanish restored Name Scriptures in history. This is a much harder job as every word has to be examined as the Spanish language has so much paganism. This is also another way of double checking that helps improve the English translation. The Scriptures talk about a famine of His Word and we believe this to be true. That is why it is important to us to reach every believer and every country with His Word - the HalleluYah Scriptures. We need your help to reach these believers and countries before it is too late. Please think about others when you order. If you are not poor and can afford to donate to help yourself and others, please pray about helping others receive a copy as there are many more worse off than ourselves. It will be the best gift you can give a brother or sister who have never seen nor owned a copy and genuinely cannot afford. For this they praise the Father and His Son and we thank you for helping. Your reward will be with the Father. HalleluYah. The joy of owning His love letter is priceless. You will be rewarded by the Father for your gift to the poor. Your gift is everlasting and it is used daily. We at HalleluYah Scriptures have no hidden agenda. Our sole desire is to only get His Word into the hands of those that are in desperate need and who have never seen nor owned a copy and have no access to the Word. CONCLUSION The HalleluYah Scriptures will always be hated and come under attack and the enemy will continue to try and use whoever is willing to be used to destroy His Word and stop the truly needy from receiving a copy freely. This is the first time a restored Name version has been given away freely. HalleluYah Scriptures will always stand by the public vow on the website which we made before man and the Almighty: that all donations to HalleluYah Scriptures goes to printing and shipping unless specified otherwise. The founding members and volunteers do not benefit financially at all in sending HalleluYah Scriptures out to those in need. No one is paid any wages nor is there any profit margin as with every other version on the market today. All extra funds donated over and above the base cost go to printing and shipping more copies for the poor, so there are no profits.
A good number on the HalleluYah Scriptures team work long hours daily on this project and have done for a number of years. Our reward is from above and we do this work to honor the Father counting it the greatest honor of our lives to do this.
We encourage you to take the time to read the HalleluYah Scriptures site so you come to understand the project and read the articles with many photographs of brothers and sisters receiving His Word freely around the world because of His people caring enough to help others.Thank you for taking the time to read this article.

The HalleluYah Scriptures translation team used the following references to base the HalleluYah Scriptures translation on. These are only some of the resourses used. They continue to research the Hebrew and Aramaic to bring the HalleluYah Scriptures closer to the Hebrew as possible in English.
A number of sources were used as research and references but not always used for the HalleluYah Scriptures.

We have been asked by a few about the Aleph Tau in His Word, so we have put this article together for you. There is always something new for people to sell on the market so be careful. Here is a small article on this subject.
THE ALEPH TAU
The aleph-tau is, in Hebrew, known as an 'object marker' which really has no counterpart in English. There are hundreds of thousands used in the Hebrew Scriptures; some hyphenated, some not. Some try to make a distinction between the את that is not joined by hyphenation (highlighted in red) and those that are (highlighted in blue), so we have taken the first ten appearances (apart from Gen 1:1) of a stand alone את so you can see how this Hebrew grammatical object marker works:
Gen 2:11שׁם האחד פישׁון הוא הסבב את כל־ארץ החוילה אשׁר־שׁם הזהב׃
The name of the first is Pishon, it is the one surrounding את the entire land of Ḥawilah, where there is gold.
Gen 2:13ושׁם־הנהר השׁני גיחון הוא הסובב את כל־ארץ כושׁ׃
And the name of the second river is Giḥon, it is the one surrounding את the entire land of Kush.
Gen 9:22וירא חם אבי כנען את ערות אביו ויגד לשׁני־אחיו בחוץ׃
And Ḥam, the father of Kena'an, saw את the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside.
Gen 9:23ויקח שׁם ויפת את־השׂמלה וישׂימו על־שׁכם שׁניהם וילכו אחרנית ויכסו את ערות אביהם ופניהם אחרנית וערות אביהם לא ראו׃
So Shĕm and Yepheth took את-a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and went backward and covered את the nakedness of their father, but their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father's nakedness.
Gen 9:24וייקץ נח מיינו וידע את אשׁר־עשׂה־לו בנו הקטן׃
And Noaḥ awoke from his wine, and he knew את what his younger son had done to him.
Gen 12:13אמרי־נא אחתי את למען ייטב־לי בעבורך וחיתה נפשׁי בגללך׃
''Please say you are my sister, את so that it shall be well with me for your sake, and my life be spared because of you.''
Gen 13:11ויבחר־לו לוט את כל־ככר הירדן ויסע לוט מקדם ויפרדו אישׁ מעל אחיו׃
So Lot chose for himself את all the plain of the Yardĕn, and Lot moved east. Thus they separated from each other.
Gen 14:9את כדרלעמר מלך עילם ותדעל מלך גוים ואמרפל מלך שׁנער ואריוך מלך אלסר ארבעה מלכים את־החמשׁה׃
את against Keḏorla'omer sovereign of Ĕylam, and Tiḏ'al sovereign of Goyim, and Amraphel sovereign of Shin'ar, and Aryoḵ sovereign of Ellasar - four sovereigns against את-five.
Gen 14:16וישׁב את כל־הרכשׁ וגם את־לוט אחיו ורכשׁו השׁיב וגם את־הנשׁים ואת־העם׃
So he brought back את all the goods, and also brought back his brother את-Lot and his goods, as well as the women and את-the people.
Gen 17:8ונתתי לך ולזרעך אחריך את ארץ מגריך את כל־ארץ כנען לאחזת עולם והייתי להם לאלהים׃
''And I shall give to you and your seed after you את the land of your sojournings, את all the land of Kena'an, as an everlasting possession. And I shall be their Elohim.''
As you can see, the aleph, tau appears hundreds of times in places that bear absolutely no meaning to whether or not Ha'Mashiaḥ is pre-existent... To put all these into a translation would be totally confusing.
A similar situation would occur if you were translating English to Hebrew:
“I am a prophet” would translate to Hebrew without the words 'am a' eg: “I prophet” (Anokhi navi)
Here's a scan from a Hebrew book purely from a grammatical perspective to aid understanding:
There are over 600 aleph tau's that are not linked by hyphenation, yet there are thousands that are linked. They all serve pretty much the same grammatical function and should not be distinguished separately just because they are linked or not. Early Hebrew scribes never even used the hyphenation (known as Maqqeph) which is a Masoretic addition.
We won't go so far as to say that there aren't many hidden treasures in the Hebrew writings, and maybe a few of the aleph tau's are indeed pin-points to Ha'Mashiach, but we believe that is up to the individual to be shown by the Ruaḥ ha'Qodesh rather than throw in 600 odd aleph tau's in seemingly random positions.
All we can recommend is that you start to learn Hebrew for yourself and you can pencil in your own personal copy, the ones that you feel point to Ha'Mashiach.
