This ´Friedländer` translation is similar in style to the Authorized / King James Version but diverges primarily in places where the AV / KJV reflects a Christian interpretation that is at odds with the traditional Jewish understanding. While it never gained wide popularity, it influenced the editors of the 1917 Jewish Publication Society edition and is cited as the basis for a revised translation found in the Koren Hebrew-English Tanakh.

In 1972 Tel-Aviv based "SINAI" Publishing House edited this translation in a smaller book without illustrations, regrettably without revealing the translator's identity. The 5th photo below shows both Friedlander Tanakhim; The larger one, boxed, compared to the smaller one being the anonymous "SINAI" edition.
