Comments: In the introduction the translators notes that the "stories are translated almost completely…but extreme repetition has been eliminated". Also from the introduction, "The second novelity of this book is the printing of Key words, names, phrases, and sentences in Hebrew, side by side with the corresponding translation." It also omits much of the Torah that deals with regulations that are not observed today (for example sacrifice at the Temple).
