First, I apologize for lack of posts this month. I have been sick for about six weeks. Thankfully, I am beginning to feel better.

Today's new find is courtesy of a good friend - Bill Chamberlin. He sent me this link for Cepher. That link is a good place to buy it (cheaper than the publisher's website). A coupon code for WND's website can be found here.

The publisher of this translation is Cepher Publishing Group, LLC. The following information is from their website:

As such, the Cepher:
  • Sets forth a translation, rather than a substitution, of the names of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • Includes the Aleph Tav over 1400 times, which have previously been omitted in every other English translation.
  • Includes all of the 74 books previously canonized as the Bible.
  • Includes the books of Chanok (Enoch) & Yovheliym (Jubilees) from the Dead Sea Scrolls, as well as Yashar (Jasher), 4 Ezra (Esdras), 2 Baruch, and 3 & 4 Makkabiym (Maccabees); all integrated with the translated Sacred Names.
  • Transliterates over 3100 Hebrew names without substitution.
  • Corrects the errors (for the first time) in the Song of Solomon, in Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 14, in Zakaryahu (Zechariah) 5, in Matthew 23, and corrects other notorious errors found in virtually all previous English translations.
  • Includes the 29th chapter of the Acts of the Apostles.
  • Restores an accurate order to the Sacred Scriptures and is well-marked with recognizable names to help you find your way.

I expected that the Aleph-Tav would be translated, but in the sample it is simply included in the original Hebrew. Genesis 2:7 has "YAHUAH ELOHIYM" for God's name. A full list of the names used for God can be found on page 18 of the sample. The sample can be viewed by clicking "look inside" on the product information page. That page shows that "YAHUSHA HAMASHIACH" is used for Jesus Christ's name and title.


  1. The 2nd Edition of this book will be available in December 2014 and includes all 9,837 Aleph Tavs along with both the Hebrew letters and the English translation (eth).

  2. There are a lot of interesting additions to the "traditional" 66 books of the Bible, but one seems to be missing as well. My KJV includes the Book of Ruth immediately following Judges. What happened to Ruth?

  3. Ruth is in the Megillot section

  4. Where and how can one buy the Cepher Bible at a discount? The $95 quoted by most is pretty pricey.

  5. I'm sorry, I don't see any good prices for this work anymore.

  6. The Cepher was on sale for Chanukkah and will likely go on sale again for Pesach in the Spring. In the meantime, email and ask for a discount.

  7. The Cepher (Say-fer) was made into an App thru the Google Play Store, its cost is abit less than the hard copy.

  8. That app can only be downloaded on a phone or a tablet, I wanted it for my computer also, any suggestions.
