OUR THORAH Is Restored

Updated: Aug 17, 2020

Pages 1 and 2 of the Ghabaray Thorah (Genesis 1:1-29).

Introducing the first edition of the holy Thorah (the so-called five books of Mashah/Moses) produced in over 2,000 years by and for OMPP.

  • The Ghabaray Thorah is completely written in the same ancient script that is attested on artifacts of genuine “Israelite” manufacture. The Phoenician-Canaanite script is often confused with the paleo "Israelite" script but they are actually different.

  • Words in the Ghabaray Thorah are separated not by spaces but by word-divider dots as seen on inscribed artifacts unearthed in the holy land which date to the pre-exilic period.

  • For the Ghabaray (Hebrew) text, I have meticulously consulted and compared the standard Chumash of the traditional Mikraos Gedolos editions against the Dead Sea Scrolls; the Greek Septuagint (LXX); the Samaritan Pentateuch; and also excerpts of the Thorah contained in writings of the first century Hebrew historian Josephus.

  • The Ghabaray Thorah is a "restored" text which corrects spelling errors and other mistakes which have crept into the manuscripts of the traditional Jewish Masoretic Hebrew Text over the centuries. Modern editions of the Hebrew Bible include information about the qere ("[what is] read") and ketiv ("[what is] written"), but the problems are not limited to qere and ketiv. For example, in the “blessing of Mashah” in Deuteronomy 33 the tribe of Shamaion (Simeon) is not mentioned at all in the traditional Jewish Masoretic Text. Theological reasons have been offered to explain this omission. However, manuscripts of the Septuagint (Codex Alexandrinus) show that the Jewish Masoretic Text evidently has a copyist error here. The name Shamaion was written in the latter half of Deuteronomy 33:6. This error has been reproduced in every translation of the Hebrew Bible that relies upon the Jewish Masoretic Text: "Let Reuben live, and not die; and let not his men be few" (1611 KJV). This error is finally corrected in the restored Ghabaray Thorah: "Live Raoban and do not die; and Shamaion, let his men be counted."

Shamaion must be counted!
