Text bible

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The text bible (full title: text bible of the Old and New Testaments ) is a full Bible that was published several times between 1899 and 1911 by JCB Mohr (Paul Siebeck), which was prepared by Protestant theology professors and published by Emil Kautzsch (Halle). The third edition came posthumously after Kautzsch died in May 1910. It appeared in three editions (Old Testament without Apocrypha ; Old and New Testament with and without Apocrypha).

The Bible edition combined the (again revised) text of the partial Bible, The Holy Scriptures of the Old Testament, first published in 1894 and edited by Kautzsch, with the translation of the New Testament by Carl Heinrich Weizsäcker after the 9th edition. While Kautzsch's partial Bible documented the editors' critical decisions through the use of different types of printing, diacritical marks and annotations under the text as well as inserts, the text Bible was limited to the Bible text itself, but guaranteed conscientious consideration of contemporary knowledge of historical-critical Method .

The text Bible gave the name of God YHWH , which occurs over 6000 times in the Old Testament, according to the scientific status with Yahweh .
