Well, I noticed that there was a thread for the KJV, and since this forum is apparently "All Languages Welcome" I felt that why not go back to an even older version of the bible, in its original language? The Masoretic text of the Hebrew Old Testament (picked because it seemed like as good a version as any) is, at the very least, in hebrew, and thus bears much closer resemblance to the original text than the KJV. Well, I dont know how these things work, but I would like to start off with the book of Genesis (first book, so it seemed like a good starting point). Please offer to read only if you are well-versed enough in biblical hebrew to pronounce the words correctly (ashkenazic or sefardic or german or mizrachi pronounciation, all are acceptable). The text shall be taken from:

Is that all, or is there anything else I need to do to get this started?

I know there's a group project of the Book of Exodus in Hebrew going on here:

That would probably be a great place to start before BCing your own project. I suspect there aren't very many Hebrew readers around and so two Hebrew Bible projects at the same time might overstretch them. Of course you're always welcome to do it as a solo!

ok. And I wouldn't want to go solo for this (way too long), but if I wanted to go solo for another book, could I? and if so, how would I go about it?
