Learning biblical Hebrew can be a challenging prospect. Having a tool to aid in understanding the original Hebrew, without a scholar's commitment to complete knowledge of this ancient language, can draw you more easily into the world of the Old Testament. More immersive than a Strong's Bible, Olive Tree’s KJV Hebrew-English Interlinear Old Testament can bring you closer to the individuals and events that shaped the people of God — without requiring years of study.
The KJV Hebrew-English Interlinear Old Testament gives you in-depth study tools at your fingertips. The Hebrew text on the top line is matched with a basic English translation and the related Strong’s number below. The KJV Bible verse is then shown in its entirety with embedded Strong's links. This layout will enable you to quickly understand translator decisions by comparing the Hebrew to the KJV translation.
Olive Tree’s KJV Hebrew-English Interlinear Old Testament text follows the order of the Hebrew Bible: Westminster Leningrad Codex, but provides English glosses based on the KJV translation for the same verse. This allows readers to see how the Hebrew text and the English translation line up on a word by word basis.

About the Translations:
The Hebrew Bible: Westminster Leningrad Codex is a project of the Groves Center based on the Leningrad Codex, Firkovich B19A, residing in the Russian National Library. The Leningrad Codex is the oldest, complete manuscript of the Hebrew Bible, dated to around 1008 AD. It serves as the basis for the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS).
It is said that when William Tyndale (1494 to 1536) was burned at the stake for translating the New Testament into the English vernacular in 1526, his last words were, "Lord, open the eyes of the king!" Shortly thereafter, the Bible was made available in English by royal decree; in 1604, 85 years after Tyndale's work, King James I authorized a new translation of the whole Bible for use by the Church of England. The result was the King James Version, or KJV, of 1611: a work of profound gravity, careful scholarship, and surpassing literary quality that has influenced English language and literature for hundreds of years, has been preached from thousands of pulpits, has been quoted by countless writers, and has led millions to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. Though modern scholarship has led to revisions that strive for greater accuracy and readability (based both on a broader array of Greek texts and on gradual changes in English usage), the King James Version is still the source from which most literal English translations derive their inspiration.
