A Reader's Hebrew Bible: Errata Reports

I just received word from Stephen Salisbury at Westminster that he received his copies of A Reader's Hebrew Bible today. I'm delighted to hear that it is shipping earlier than expected.

I would encourage users to do two things: (1) read the introduction carefully, and (2) read the review of the volume I posted on January 23, 2008 here. The Genesis errata list promised there is now finished and available here.

I also welcome reports of errata. Please report them as comments on this post or to readershebrew@gmail.com. If errata is posted as comments to this post other users will be able to see what has already been reported.

Happy reading!

Update: 6/19/2008
Known issues:
1. Esther 1, footnotes 6-21 do not match the footnotes in the text. Beginning with ftnt 22, the footnotes are back in sync. Really odd database issue.
2. Deut. 5:21 the verb that should be the second word in the verse accidentally wrapped up to the previous line and appears in v. 16.
Update: 7/10/2008
A full errata list for A Reader's Hebrew Bible is available online here.

Thank you Dr. Brown for a superbe product. Immense professional and devotional value! Love the BW 7 font adaption as well.
A little surprise that the publisher hesitated so long . . .

2 possible errata:

- vii: the product WordPerfect has, to my knowledge, always been one word (instead of Word Perfect).

- xv: the number 16,000 is printed with comma; 3000 is not. Don't know what the publishing rule is on numbers like that; just caught my eye.

Shalom,

"Happy reading!"
Happy accomplishment. Well-deserved delight I am sure. My Hebrew has, as the intro. has it, "deteriorated" but glad to have gained an appreciation at least.
Congrats on bringing this to press and beyond.
Blessings,
Randy
