Helen Spurrell


Old Testament Translation


Helen Spurrell



Product Description:

Helen Spurrell (1819-1891) decided to learn Hebrew at the age of 50, with a view to translating the Old Testament scriptures. A graduate of Oxford, she translated the Old Testament from the unpointed Hebrew text resulting in this delightful work. Due to a warehouse fire only a few copies of the 1st edition (1885) remain. A limited number of copies were printed in 1985 at the time of the translation's centenary.

This present book is a scanned copy of one these and slight blemishes and marks may be noticed on some pages. All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the work of the Lord.
