Emmanuel Tov stresses throughout his book that the Bible is not derived from one complete manuscript. All of the textual witnesses including the Masoretic Text, Septuagint, Samaritan Pentateuch, Qumran Scrolls, and Vulgate provide valuable contextual information for producing the most clear understanding of the Old Testament. The Masoretic Text is most widely accepted as the standard by which the other texts are compared. This is not because the Masoretic Text is more accurate or complete but Emmanuel Tov stresses throughout his book that the Bible is not derived from one complete manuscript. Here are expanded discussions of the contribution of textual criticism to biblical exegesis and of the role of scribes in the transmission of the text

These non-Hebrew "textual witnesses" are discussed in detail in Tov, Textual Criticism of the Hebrew Bible, 23-154.

The Hebrew Bible, which is also called the Tanakh (/tɑːˈnɑːx/; תָּנָ״ךְ, pronounced or the ; also Tenakh, Tenak, Tanach) or sometimes the Mikra, is the canonical collection of Hebrew scriptures

The Hebrew Bible, which is also called the Tanakh (/tɑːˈnɑːx/; תָּנָ״ךְ, pronounced or the ; also Tenakh, Tenak, Tanach) or sometimes the Mikra, is the canonical collection of Hebrew scriptures. These texts are almost exclusively in Biblical Hebrew, with a few passages in Biblical Aramaic instead (in the books of Daniel and Ezra, the verse Jeremiah 10:11, and some single words). The Hebrew Bible is also the textual source for the Christian Old Testament

Since its initial publication, Textual Criticism of the Hebrew Bible has established itself as the indispensable authoritative textbook and reference on the subject. In this thoroughly revised third edition, Emanuel Tov has incorporated the insights of the last ten years of scholarship, including new perspectives on the biblical texts among the Dead Sea Scrolls, all of which have now been published. Here are expanded discussions of the contribution of textual criticism to biblical exegesis and of the role of scribes in the transmission of the text. The introduction and references throughout the book have been thoroughly revised with the beginning student of textual criticism in mind.

First a slight disclaimer--I had the honor and privilege of studying with Professor Tov at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 1977, so I am perhaps a little biased. I began using this book in its first edition and have happily replaced my copies as Professor Tov updated his work to now its third revision. That is not to say that if you happen upon one of the earlier versions in a library or used book store that you should avoid those as "outdated." In fact, they will serve almost anyone who is looking for a complete and accurate history of the transmission of the Bible in Hebrew extremely well. Specialists do need access to the latest research and should consider replacing the older versions.

This is not a "popular" book. It is a reference work for people who are concerned with the technical aspects of the transmission of the Bible in its various manuscripts and versions. That said, it is not unapproachable by generalists and will serve you well even if you do not know original languages but have the occasional need to investigate some troubling aspect of biblical research. For example, perhaps you are reading the book of Genesis and encounter a note that in a certain story about Jacob and Esau, one of the Hebrew words is unusual because in every modern edition it has dots placed over each letter. What could those dots mean? Professor Tov will explain it in good English and with copious references to original and secondary sources. Or perhaps you would like to know exactly what we have learned by the study of the Biblical passages found in the caves near the Dead Sea. Again, Professor will provide those answers in a clear and convincing manner.

There are a few other books that cover this territory, but this is by far the best. You might even consider it to be the Bible of the Bible.

Finally, a real scholar has come forward to communicate effectively regarding the development and transmission of the Tanach ("Old Testament"). Tov's English composition is quite readable and understandable. One who has studied Hebrew and Greek can appreciate the book more fully. While the book focuses on the Tanach, a sound "Common Sense" approach to textual criticism is well presented that should applied to the New Testament as well. If I were teaching again, I would make this one of my textbooks. Tov has been gifted with the ability to organize and communicate in a highly effective way.

This is a substantial update from the 2nd to the 3rd edition. Having gone through the 2nd edition carefully several years ago, I am impressed with the substantial additions and clarifications Dr. Tov has made to the 3rd edition.

This work is a superb overview and the 3rd edition incorporates many changes which make it worthwhile to purchase and read even if you already own and have read the 2nd edition. Highly Recommended!

This is a very helpful book-- even for a gentile who does not read Hebrew-- to study various criticisms in these ancient texts.
Exactly as expected
