Tanach: Corrected JPS 1917 Translation

In trying to track down other versions, I ran across this version on a website called the Karaite Korner. Along with a couple Hebrew texts, the download page offers a revised Jewish Publication Society 1917 Old Testament. It appears it is mostly a change to use "YHWH" instead of "Lord." This may be the same as the "Tanach Corrected" by Nehemiah Gordon available at Look Higher!.

As you can see, I am trying to sort through the plethora of sacred name type versions.

    Thanks for pointing this out.

    I'm really underwhelmed by Gordon's 'Correction'. He whould've done much better to canvass the entire text and produce a text bearing a far greater fidelity to the hebrew original.
